Slurm-Rescale Connector Brings Fully Managed Serverless Cloud with Secure On Demand Access to Common HPC & AI Applications

Rescale | November 16, 2022

Rescale, the leader in high performance computing built for the cloud to accelerate engineering innovation, and RedLine Performance Solutions, announced today the availability of the Slurm Rescale Connector to provide Slurm users seamless access to cloud directly from the Slurm interface covering over 1000 managed full-stack HPC applications and access to all major cloud providers worldwide. "Slurm Rescale Connector provides an easy button to burst workflows to public clouds such as AWS, Azure, OCI, GCP from any existing on-prem HPC environment" said Don Avart, CTO of RedLine Performance Solutions, "We are excited to partner with Rescale on this hybrid solution to allow customers to take advantage of cloud-scale capacity and architectural choices available in the cloud." With high performance computing (HPC) workloads increasingly run in the cloud, many organizations are developing hybrid cloud strategies. But replicating data center infrastructure in dynamic cloud environments can be prohibitively complex and expensive. Hybrid Cloud Directly from Slurm With the Slurm-Rescale Connector, the entire multi-cloud world fully managed by Rescale is presented as one additional infrastructure scheduled by Slurm. This means Slurm users do not need to change how they use the scheduler to get the benefits of cloud-based specialized computing architectures or work at cloud-scale. Administrators can similarly get full visibility to cloud software and infrastructure spend, define policies on which architecture or geographies can be used, all without ever having to directly maintain any cloud-based infrastructure. From a cost perspective, HPC organizations can define budgets to keep cloud spending under control, and work directly with a single unified control, while providing users multi-cloud infrastructure or a rich software catalog. Rescale fully-managed HPCaaS is available with FedRAMP Moderate and ITAR compliance. "Slurm Rescale Connector enables HPC users and administrators to continue using the tools they know, while getting access to Rescale's catalog of over 1000 HPC fully managed applications, the ability to run any container, features to publish and manage your own software, and all specialized architectures through our intelligent multi-cloud infrastructure - available directly from their on-prem Slurm environment, "In addition, users can also benefit from Rescale's administrative controls and performance optimization features so they can get the best capabilities from the cloud with trust and confidence in full-stack security and delivery." Peter Lyu, VP of Global Solutions & Customer Success at Rescale This unique approach to hybrid is possible because Rescale is a fully managed solution for HPC cloud operations that brings full stack security, and support. Users can bring their own software and containers and run it anywhere on Rescale's multi-cloud infrastructure based on IT policies. Additionally, Rescale also maintains popular commercial and open source software in its catalog. Lastly, Rescale provides performance intelligence and guidance on how to best configure workloads to help users get the best performance possible - whether it's to minimize cost or minimize job run time. The Slurm Rescale connector will be released in 2022 Q4 as open source under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation. About Rescale Rescale is high performance computing built for the cloud, to empower engineers while giving IT security and control. From supersonic jets to personalized medicine, industry leaders are bringing new product innovations to market with unprecedented speed and efficiency with Rescale, a cloud platform delivering intelligent full-stack automation and performance optimization. IT leaders use Rescale to deliver HPC-as-a-Service with a secure control plane to deliver any application, on any architecture, at any scale on their cloud of choice.

Introducing MoEngage Inform, A Unified Messaging Infrastructure for Multichannel Transactional Notifications Through One API

MoEngage | November 17, 2022

MoEngage, the insights-led customer engagement platform, today announced its new product, MoEngage Inform, a unified messaging infrastructure that enables brands to build and manage multichannel transactional alerts through one API. Consumers expect immediate updates on critical transactional notifications at their fingertips. Using MoEngage Inform, brands can provide real-time transactional alerts to improve the customer experience, such as an order or booking confirmation after a product is purchased, a delivery notification when a package arrives, one-time passwords (OTPs) for approving transactions or logging in securely, or notifications around password resets, among other time-sensitive alerts. Oftentimes, building, updating, and delivering these critical alerts requires significant engineering bandwidth and resources. There is a heavy reliance on development teams to maintain a transactional messaging infrastructure and add new channels; in some cases, integrating a new vendor or new communication channel provider can take at least eight weeks of engineering efforts. Moreover, brands often encounter a siloed customer experience due to multiple delivery providers and API demands, resulting in limited visibility into customers' actions. There is no unified view of notifications received by customers, meaning product teams cannot easily identify if a customer has already received or has acted on an alert; potentially leading to customers receiving duplicate alerts across channels. Inform makes transactional alert management seamless so brands can focus more on delivering the cohesive, time-sensitive messages that consumers want. Inform's single API requires a one-time setup, freeing up engineering bandwidth and pushing control to the product or marketing teams. MoEngage Inform is a component of the MoEngage Customer Engagement Platform, which together enables brands to have one platform to support all of their customer messaging and notifications needs, both transactional and marketing-related. Product and marketing teams will be able to have a unified view of the customer journey, so they can collectively understand and gather insights to inform future initiatives to deliver a better customer experience. With MoEngage Inform, brands can achieve: Unified Customer Experiences - Get a unified view of how customers engage with the brand, including transactional and promotional messages across channels, and leverage an advanced algorithm that uses AI to determine what channels each customer prefers to receive critical alerts on and set a priority order automatically. Centralized Visibility and Performance - Track and optimize the performance of your multichannel transactional and promotional messages in one central dashboard. Reduced Engineering Resources and Improved Effectiveness - Power all transactional messaging with a single API and integrate with any communication channel with ease, supporting more than 30 providers. More Autonomy, Faster Delivery of Alerts - Get out-of-the-box templates to create new alerts in minutes, with alerts being delivered in under 5 seconds. A built-in fallback mechanism ensures critical alerts are delivered on other channels upon disruptions. Improved Data Security and Reporting - Achieve unified notification logs and delivery reports across channels, making identifying and debugging issues easier. "As organizations grow, their messaging and communication needs become more complex. With MoEngage Inform, engineering teams can focus on delivering core offerings instead of building backend infrastructures, and product and marketing teams can deliver critical transactional alerts without breaking customer experiences," said Raviteja Dodda, CEO and co-founder of MoEngage.
