Today we are announcing general availability of NICE EnginFrame 2021.0. NICE EnginFrame is an easy-to-use, web front-end that makes HPC job submission and management easier for customers. With this latest release, customers are able to use NICE EnginFrame across both on-premises and AWS environments using its new AWS HPC Connector feature. Where customers may have previously used NICE EnginFrame for these tasks on-premises and separately managed AWS resources for HPC using the AWS CLI or AWS Management Console, NICE EnginFrame customers can now manage all of these HPC workflows across both their on-premises and AWS environments using a single, unified interface.
The new AWS HPC Connector in NICE EnginFrame makes it possible for customers to configure, deploy, and administer managed HPC clusters on AWS. This new functionality complements the existing support for on-premises systems. AWS HPC Connector is built on top of AWS ParallelCluster, an AWS-supported, open source HPC cluster management tool. Using the AWS HPC Connector customers can now submit and manage workloads across both their on-premises and AWS environments from a single, unified interface. By unifying the resources and management of on-premises and AWS environments, teams can access all of their compute from a single place, helping them to save time and simplify workflows. NICE EnginFrame can help customers increase productivity if they need additional capacity for faster time-to-results, access to specialized resources (such as GPUs or FPGAs) to run jobs with more precision, or a way to manage workloads while migrating their HPC workloads from on-premises to AWS.
