Univa Releases Navops Command
November 14, 2016

Univa announced the general availability of Navops Command.

Navops Command implements sophisticated workload scheduling and advanced policy management for enterprises to take full advantage of containers on any Kubernetes distribution. Navops provides organizations the unique ability to better optimize utilization of Kubernetes resources and save money ultimately.

Navops Command’s runs on any Kubernetes distribution so customers can work with their choice of Kubernetes distribution like RedHat’s OpenShift, Navops Launch, CoreOS’s Tectonic, and Rancher, and still get the benefit of Command’s advanced policy management.

“Red Hat OpenShift customers can benefit from the policy management and resource efficiency improvements that Navops Command brings to Kubernetes, allowing them to run mixed workloads like HPC alongside microservice applications with more ease,” said Chris Morgan, OpenShift Technical Director of Ecosystem at Red Hat.

“Given the breadth of application components and now infrastructures that must be supported, enterprises are very interested in managing compute resources as a single entity as much as possible, including on-premise and cloud environments,” said Jay Lyman, principal analyst for 451 Research. “Software such as Univa's Navops Command can enable organizations to consolidate and pool container clusters with traditional compute clusters for efficiency, performance and cost savings in enterprise workloads.”

Key capabilities include:

- Advanced scheduling algorithms

- Sophisticated policies for managing SLAs

- Automated prioritization when resources become scarce

- Manage cluster resources efficiently

“We’re excited to see the burgeoning ecosystem around Kubernetes and the unique capabilities that established players like Univa are bringing to the market” said David Aronchick, Kubernetes Product Manager at Google, “Univa’s expertise in scheduling and policy management for enterprise workloads will benefit customers adopting Kubernetes and containers.”

Together with Navops Command, Univa is also announcing Mixed Workload Support allowing organizations to run containerized and legacy, un-containerized workloads within a Kubernetes cluster. Arbitrary applications such as Spark, Hadoop or batch Jobs can be run side by side with microservice-based applications sharing the same server infrastructure, networking and storage. This capability greatly simplifies migration to containerized environments and to Kubernetes in particular.

“Enterprise customers have complex requirements that include the resource management of their micro-service applications as well as a need to integrate batch and non-containerized workloads,” said Rob Lalonde, VP and GM of Navops, “We are excited to release Navops Command to help optimize Kubernetes deployments. The addition of managing traditional, non-container workloads will be another great benefit to our customers.”
