Over at Computerworld, Patrick Thibodeau writes that the new AweSim project at OSC is developing an “App Store for HPC” to help manufacturers move towards virtual design and testing.


This is how it might work: A manufacturer designing a part to reduce drag on an 18-wheel truck could upload a CAD file, plug in some parameters, hit start and let it use 128 cores of the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) 8,500 core system. The cost would likely be anywhere from $200 to $500 for a 6,000 CPU hour run, or about 48 hours, to simulate the process and package the results up in a report.
