The most scalable workload manager in the world has a new logo!
On 9 October 2012, the new Slurm logo was revealed at the Slurm user group conference in Barcelona.
The logo was inspired by Slurm’s function as a workload manager: the icon consists of multiple distinct boxes with rounded corners and different sizes, each representing a job. The boxes are lined up in columns and rows of different length, representing the queues in the workload manager.
The font used in the logo is the “Board of Directors” font from the Japanese type foundry, Typodermic. It was chosen for its modern and distinct looks, while the roundings in each letter nicely match the roundings in the boxes of the icon.
