Bull's Extreme Computing solutions integrate
bullx supercomputer suite - Bull's comprehensive
software suite for Linux HPC environments

An Extreme Computing cluster needs to have all the qualities you would expect from an effective production system: it must be available and capable of delivering the best performance under normal working conditions, with a varied and fluctuating workload, multiple users and multiple applications. This means the choice of supercomputer management suite is crucial, and has a real impact on the effective availability rate of the computing environment. At the same time, users should be able to concentrate on their own applications, rather than spend their time on administering the system.

bullx supercomputer suite is a comprehensive, powerful and robust software solution that meets the requirements of even the most challenging high performance computing needs. It is the result of Bull’s long experience in deploying HPC software to the strictest specifications and major investments and continued efforts in R&D. 

bullx supercomputer suite is designed, thanks to its Core Offer and its Extended Offer, to address a broad range of needs, from small supercomputers with just a few hundred cores demanding ease of use and flexibility, scaling up to supercomputers with several tens of thousands of cores, where very high availability, reliability, automated event and health management, optimized energy footprint, very high data throughput, and a fine-tuned MPI library are all essential features.

A comprehensive, open, integrated and flexible solution

The bullx supercomputer suite is a comprehensive solution to manage supercomputers, data and applications. It includes all the components necessary to install, provision, monitor and administrate supercomputers, as well as those needed to develop, run and fine-tune HPC applications.  The suite is based on best-of-breed open source software and leading open standards, enhanced with Bull’s added value features. bullx supercomputer suite components are integrated through common access to the Supercomputer Information Repository, which provides a centralized and consistent view of the supercomputer and its application states for all components. This results in a dramatic increase in reliability as well as a whole new set of features.

Total flexibility

bullx supercomputer suite is modular by design. Users have total flexibility to implement tools from other leading software providers in conjunction with bullx supercomputer suite. Furthermore, these tools have been thoroughly tested and validated within the supercomputer suite environment to make sure that the overall solution achieves the required levels of performance and robustness.
