Big Data Visualization with TACC Maverick


Over at VizWorld, Dean Meyers writes that the new Maverick system at TACC is a unique, powerful, high performance visualization and data analytics resource for the open science and engineering community.

Interview: Transtec Solutions for HPC and Big Data Workflows


“One of the hottest topics we see is remote visualization for post-processing simulation results. One big issue in traditional workflows in technical and scientific computing is the transfer of large amounts of data from where these have been created to where they are analyzed. Streamlining this workflow by processing where the data have been created in the first place is tantamount to shorten the wall-clock time it takes end users to get final results. At the same time, hardware utilization is greatly enhanced by using innovative technology for remote 3D visualization. For this, we have long since entered into a strategic partnership with NICE.”

GTC Keynotes to Livestream This Week on insideHPC


We are pleased to announce that insideHPC will be streaming live keynotes this week from the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose. You can look forward to the latest on GPU-powered science and state-of-the-art visualization.

Interview: GPU Technology Conference Enters 5th Year with Over 100 HPC Sessions


The upcoming GPU Technology Conference is entering it’s fifth year with developer talks on everything from Numerical Algorithms to Big Data Analytics. “In short, we’ll have a ton of HPC content. There are nearly 100 sessions dedicated to supercomputing and HPC topics. This includes major scientific research enabled by these GPU-accelerate systems – everything from breakthroughs in cancer research and astronomy, to HIV research and new big data analytics innovation.”

Seac02 Brings Augmented Reality to Altair Alliance


Seac02, the developer of the real-time rendering and augmented reality software LinceoVR, has joined the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). As the APA’s first rendering tool, LinceoVR expands the program’s simulation offering.

Large Datasets Continue to Challenge Aerospace Engineers


“In aerospace, users prefer to have the option to visualize the entire system. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s something routinely done. By definition, system-level visuals involve too much data. If an engineer is trying to troubleshoot something in an analysis program, he or she will most likely analyze only the subcomponents that contribute to the problem. For example, electrical wiring information can safely be omitted when doing an airflow study of the outer surface.”

VCollab: Displaying Ansys EKM Simulation Models in a Browser


Over at the Ansys Blog, Thomas Lehnhaeuser writes that VCollab softwares enables users to save time and view simulation models and their results without having to open a corresponding post-processing tool.

Forget 4K TV – Check out the NASA hyperwall-2


Now that the recent CES Conference has us all thinking that 4K displays are state-of-the-art, I thought it might be a good time to show this video of the hyperwall-2 at NASA. This 128-screen tiled LCD wall is arranged in a 8×16 configuration that measures 23-ft. wide by 10-ft. high. The display system is connected to […]

Dassault Acquires RTT


Dassault has announced the signing of an acquisition agreement for an 84 per cent interest in Realtime Technology (RTT).

Sponsored Post: Display Manager from Altair: Remote Visualization for HPC


Display Manager is a web-based environment for remote visualization of very Big Data arising from large HPC simulations. “Display Manager eliminates the need for massive data movement across networks by leveraging NVIDIA GRID GPU’s for server side remote visualization. This represents a major milestone in the path toward complete simulation lifecycle management.” Watch the demo to see it in action.
