Altair AcceleratorTM Overview

Industry’s Fastest Enterprise Job Scheduler with Event-driven Architecture for Highest Throughput and High-Performance Hierarchical Scheduling
Accelerator is an enterprise grade job scheduler designed for distributed High-Performance-Computing (HPC) environments. As a highly adaptable solution, it is capable of managing compute infrastructures from small dedicated server farms to complex distributed HPC environments.

The Plus package of Accelerator (Accelerator Plus) also includes a hierarchical scheduler architected to off-load the base scheduler, enabling greater throughput, better license and resource utilization, and more flexible scheduler usage models.
