TROY, Mich., and WAYNE, Pa., Dec. 4 -- In response to customer requests, Altair Engineering and Phoenix Integration have developed a unified software solution for aerospace and defense organizations using computer-aided engineering (CAE) software for product design. By closely integrating Altair's PBS Professional software for cluster, grid and on-demand computing with the industry-leading PHX CenterLink software for accelerating design simulations from Phoenix Integration, customers benefit from a cost-effective, speed optimized, integrated solution. Design teams can create processes in PHX ModelCenter, a visual environment for process integration, and upload to PHX CenterLink, which acts as a broker for PBS Professional to manage both Windows and UNIX analyses over grid computing networks.
The configuration of PBS Professional and PHX CenterLink provides a software solution that is popular with customers because it eliminates custom integration efforts, speeds technology implementation time and delivers an easy-to-use solution for faster results and maximizes efficiency and utilization of high-performance computing (HPC) resources. Customers who have standardized the use of PBS Professional for management of grid computing resources and have then integrated PHX CenterLink benefit from accelerated design simulations and optimized speed to run integrated processes faster.
"The PBS Professional Connector also enables PHX CenterLink users to leverage the full power and value of grid computing for PHX ModelCenter components; design optimization, simulation, visualization and trade studies. This enables design teams to collaborate and perform trade studies in parallel," explains Scott Woyak, president and CEO of Phoenix Integration. "Organizations that have already standardized on PBS Professional will gain advantages of PHX ModelCenter integration that features graphical analyses, integration with CAD/CAE tools, and Web collaboration between conceptual and preliminary design teams to dramatically shorten design cycles."
"Altair Engineering works closely with its application partners to deliver integrated solutions that deliver greater value than each of the components alone," said Michael Humphrey, vice president of Partner Programs for Altair. "PBS Professional is an enabling technology that allows customers to maximize their computing resources. Together, PBS Professional and PHX CenterLink deliver customers a more complete software solution that meets the demands for higher performance."

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

he study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
