HPC’s Future Lies in Remote Visualization

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

Remote visualization is at the intersection of cloud, big data, and high performance computing. And the ability to look at complex data sets using only a mobile phone’s data rate is not some fantasy of the future. It is reality here and now.

Using HPC in Design and Manufacturing

Lightweight construction is more than designing according to the laws of nature. It is a social, ecological and economic concern, a philosophy and an aesthetic view. In this case study we see how SL-Rasch (Institute for Scientific Architecture) used HPC to design, simulate and manufacture large umbrellas for use in a variety of places including a mosque.

How Altair’s Display Manager Saves Workflow Time at Ping Golf

“Display Manager is our most significant functionality update since the move to HPC itself,” said Eric Morales, Engineer and Design Analyst at Ping Golf. “In most cases we are saving a full day of time or more. We get instant feedback, make the change and have enough time to view the results of those changes the same day. Before the upgrade we wouldn’t get those results until mid to late morning the next day, and wouldn’t get the updated structure until end of the next day. Display Manager has greatly improved the speed and efficiency of our process.”
