Six ways HPC Clusters Drive Design Optimization

IBM HPC Clusters

Tighter budgets and a stricter regulatory climate are dictating the need for smaller product envelopes and new material choices. Engineers are tasked with these demands against a backdrop of fewer resources and shrinking time-to-market cycles. Now, you’ll learn how advanced simulation software can dramatically shorten the design phase by allowing engineers to virtually optimize and validate new ideas earlier in the process, minimizing the expense of building physical prototypes and streamlining real-world testing.

Ping Golf Optimizes Finite Element Analysis with Hyperworks

“We started using finite element analysis along with computational fluid dynamics, and we really needed a good tool that could work with all different kinds of software, and Altair really has those tools that are multi-functional across different software.”

The Beginning of an Era – HPC, Take Your Rightful Place in the Data Center

Jill King, VP of Marketing, Adaptive Computing

“Please join me in welcoming a new era — an era where HPC is the center of the business universe. It’s about keeping it simple and creating an ecosystem that adapts as demands dictate. Take the ease-of-use and collaboration of the cloud, couple that with the horsepower of HPC and extract the data necessary for the business to make game changing decisions. That’s the recipe for success and HPC is the cornerstone. HPC, take your rightful place in the data center.”

5 Easy Steps to a High Performance Cluster (HPC)

IBM HPC Clusters

Engineers are being asked to do more in less time to meet ever-tightening time-to-market schedules. To do so, they need to accelerate design by making use of advanced engineering software. However, such software requires computing processing power not available in a typical engineering workstation. Learn how a cluster can deliver aggregated computing power from its many processors with many cores to meet the processing demands of more complex engineering software, and therefore deliver results faster than individual workstations.

How Should Monitoring for HPC Clusters be Modernized?

Ian Lumb, Bright Evangelist

In an 1883 lecture on “The Practical Applications of Electricity”, Scottish physicist Lord Kelvin stated: “… when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it …” High Performance Computing (HPC), therefore, inherited a healthy predisposition towards monitoring. Fast forwarding in time to the present, monitoring HPC clusters remains topical. And while I expect we can all agree upon the ongoing relevance, it is clear that there are very different perspectives as to how monitoring should be modernized. Whereas passive monitoring using meta-toolkits may address needs temporarily, unified solutions that combine monitoring with provisioning and management deliver value on an ongoing, sustainable basis.
