Abstract

The employment of a hybrid system can be very advantageous to increase the efficiency of coupled applications. This paper addresses the evaluation of the HLRS environment as a hybrid system. HLRS operates different architectures like NEC SX-8 (Vector), NEC TX-7 IA64 (SMP) and PC cluster based on Intel EM64T. The different and independent computing systems of this environment can be coupled and used as a hybrid system, if a respective set of software components is provided. The evaluation presented in this paper focuses on Batch systems, Global File systems and MPI/coupling software.
