Video: Leveraging HPC and Optimizing the IT Environment for Engineering Simulation

In this video, Shane Moeykens from Ansys presents: Leveraging HPC and Optimizing the IT Environment for Engineering Simulation. The presentation was recorded at the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference 2013. Download the slides (PDF).

Comments

  1. This presentation misses the most glaring issue with commercial software providers, such as ANSYS, namely that their licensing models are extremely out of touch with the pace of Moore’s law. Add into that mix the fact that they want to ala carte you to death for things like GPGPUs.

    Rich – here is a great little side project for you. Track commercial software cost against hardware costs. With hardware, costs scale, with software it sadly misses the boat. You can spend $1.5M for something in the 100TF range for an fully depreciated life over 36 months. Commercial CAE software to run on that cluster (CFD, Crash, FEA, Chemistry) can hit you with that same number yearly.
