Universal Resource Broker is an enterprise-class workload optimization solution for high performance, containerized and shared data centers. It is designed to enable organizations to achieve massive scalability of shared data center resources and to lay the foundation for the Internet of Things. Powered by Univa Grid Engine, it enables organizations to manage and optimize distributed applications, data center services, legacy applications and big data frameworks in a single, dynamically shared compute pool. Enterprises can create a single, virtual, high throughput and high performance compute pool out of distributed data center resources by integrating batch, low-latency workload, data center services and big data frameworks. It provides easy integration of distributed application environments consuming dynamic partitions of the cluster and supports heterogeneous machine types and architectures, allowing organizations to run and manage bare-metal servers or leverage virtual machines, hybrid cloud and containers, such as Docker.
