Altair Crash Tests New Xeon E7s

Mar 12, 2014 |

RADIOSS, one of the top structural analysis solvers in the industry, is used by auto companies like Ford and PSA in France to run car crash and other simulations to test safety and viability of a broad array of products. Like similar CAE codes, it is highly parallelized for top performance on large, powerful clusters–and Read more…

Crash Testing at Scale

Jan 14, 2014 |

Over on Cray’s blog site, the company’s manufacturing segment manager, Greg Clifford, writes about the performance of explicit structural applications at scale as a follow-up post to a blog on extreme scaling in CAE applications,” which shows such applications successfully scaling to over 10,000 cores. The new entry is concerned with the scaling performance of Read more…

Freeing CAE Jobs from Zombie Computing

Nov 14, 2013 |

Over at Desktop Engineering, Kenneth Wong has published “The Zombie Computer Survival Guide,” or “things to consider when shopping for HPC for simulation.” Wong writes that “sooner or later, advanced CAE software user will have to face the invasion of the zombie desktop computers.” This is the inevitable point when underpowered desktop computers forced to run Read more…

UberCloud HPC Experiment Preps for Round Three

The cloud-based experiment seeks participants from the HPC, CAE, life sciences, and big data communities.

UberCloud HPC Experiment Readies for Round Three

Mar 5, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpccloud/abstract_globe.jpg” alt=”" width=”94″ height=”84″ />The UberCloud Experiment is issuing an open invitation to members of the HPC, CAE, life sciences, and big data communities to join round three. Teams will be involved in applying the cloud computing services model to compute and data-intensive workloads on remote cluster computing resources. The idea behind the experiment is to explore the end-to-end process of using remote computing resources as a service, and learning to tackle the many roadblocks.

HPC as a Service: Lessons Learned

Innovating In the Cloud

Dec 3, 2012 |

Altair’s HyperWorks On-Demand™ allows customers to leverage their investment in Altair’s patented licensing system to run software on a hosted HPC infrastructure via a secure, web-based portal. Launched from a web browser, HWOD enables engineers to burst to the cloud to run simulations so organizations can easily scale resources to meet growing compute demand.

Half-Time in the Uber-Cloud

Sep 20, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Hyperscale_small.bmp” alt=”" width=”111″ height=”68″ />Since its inception on June 28, the Uber-Cloud Experiment has attracted over 160 industry and research organizations and individuals from 22 countries. They all have one goal: to jointly explore the end-to-end process of remotely accessing technical computing resources sitting in HPC centers and in the cloud. With Round One of the experiment wrapping up, the organizers have generously provided a “half-time” report of the project.

CAE in the Cloud – New Business Opportunities for Manufacturers and ISVs

Jul 19, 2012 |

Most manufacturers, especially small and medium businesses (SMBs), mainly use desktop workstations for their daily R&D work. Often they do prep work during the day and production runs over-night, resulting in one simulation job per day. In this article, we will investigate how breaking the CAE jobs free from the restrictions of the workstation environment and moving them to the cloud could benefit the CAE engineers as well as the CAE software vendors.
