Ansys, today, announced its preliminary performance data for its software running on Microsoft HPC Server 2008. Apparently, there are significant performance gains when using HPC Server 2008 [as opposed to what? …no word on what the baseline runs were performed on].
ANSYS invests significant resources in optimization of our software for high-performance computing (HPC), and we have achieved some impressive performance gains on the latest solution from Microsoft,” said Chris Reid, vice president, marketing at ANSYS, Inc. “The combination of ANSYS software and Windows HPC Server 2008 enhances cluster computing as an option for our customers who need more HPC capacity in order to expand the role of simulation in their engineering process — allowing engineers to work with larger data sets and perform complex analysis with shorter turnaround time.”
Ansys plans on releasing full support for HPC Server 2008 in upcoming releases. In the mean time, they will most likely show more detailed performance results at their International Ansys Conference this week in Pittsburgh.
