Today Simulationclusters.com announced it is now running Intel’s E5-2600 v4 processors. A site for real-time demonstration of the ROI of upgrading from a workstation to an HPC cluster, Simulationsclusters.com is a collaboration between Nor-Tech, Intel, and Dassault Systèmes that showcases benchmarks with the new processors that show dramatic performance increases and significant cost benefits.
The powerful Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor line is designed for architecting next-generation datacenters running on software defined infrastructures across Cloud and traditional applications. These processors are designed to meet the perpetual demand for increased performance, agility, operational efficiency, scale-on-demand and security throughout the server, storage and network infrastructure – while minimizing total cost of ownership. They support workloads for Cloud, high-performance computing, networking, and storage
“Simulationclusters.com users will be able to assess the advantages of Intel v4 Broadwell-EP and all the enhancements related to HPC,” said Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig. “There are many performance advantages with the primary benefit being significantly improved clock speed.”
Nor-Tech offers a full range of HPC clusters, including standard 42U rackmount clusters, GPU clusters, visualization clusters, workgroup clusters, office clusters, and portable clusters all available with Intel’s new v4 processors. Simulationclusters.com runs Abaqus FEA, a SIMULIA product developed by Dassault. It is a scalable suite of unified analysis products that allows all users to collaborate and share simulation data and approved methods without the loss of information fidelity. The product suite offers powerful solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems that cover a spectrum of industrial applications.
Other upgrades for 2016 include: enhanced contact, enhanced materials and elements, and enhanced interface and usability. This means reduction in FEA toolset and training expenses; greater efficiency in model generation; improved correlation between tests and analysis results; improved data transfer between simulations; and a more flexible workforce.
In addition to Dassault Simulia’s latest version of Abaqus, other simulation and modeling software is available to run on simulationclusters.com.
