HyperWorks Unlimited is a managed private cloud solution with fully configured hardware and software, offering unlimited use of all Altair software within the appliance. This unique solution provides best-in-class application software, HPC workload management tools, and industry leading licensing and business model to fit your growing simulation needs.
There is a strong and growing wave of interest (and not just from vendors) in cloud-based engineering simulation. I met with numerous end users, especially from smaller and mid-market companies, who desperately need a more cost-effective way to perform engineering work, in terms of both computation and software licensing.
Today Mellanox announced that their FDR InfiniBand-powered RDMA Solution Enables 2X Faster Access to File Storage.
Procuring, managing and maintaining large HPC clusters is a complex and challenging process, especially for small and medium businesses. HyperWorks Unlimited addresses this issue head-on by providing limitless access to our software within a pre-configured, fully supported hardware appliance for cloud-based simulation.
With Cloud HPC, the time to get the hardware is now 15 minutes, the time to get rid of the hardware is 15 minutes, as opposed to a couple of weeks, or a couple of months, and three or four years of depreciation. So it is a tremendous advantage: being able to relinquish the hardware is actually equally as important as the acquisition time, because it allows you to experiment now.
A public database dubbed MERIL (Mapping of the European Research Infrastructure Landscape) has been launched with the aim of providing a comprehensive inventory of high quality research infrastructures in Europe across all scientific domains, and accessible through an interactive online portal.
