Altair open sources PBS Professional

Workload manager contributed to Open HPC stack.

Altair is to open source PBS Professional. The high performance computing workload manager will be integrated with the Linux Foundation’s Open HPC stack. PBS Pro was originally developed at NASA’s Ames Research Center and was acquired by Altair in 2003. Altair chairman and CEO Jim Scapa said, ‘Our goal is for the open source community to actively participate in shaping the future of PBS Professional. The community’s contributions combined with our own R&D will accelerate exascale computing initiatives across the board.’ Integration with the Open HPC stack will be performed as a joint initiative with Intel. The open source licensing option of PBS Pro is planned for release mid-year 2016. Early access is available for ‘select partners’ for testing. The plan is for both commercial and open source licensing.
