Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Modeling-simulation software vendor Altair today announced GA of new features in Altair One, an integrated platform combining the company’s entire product suite and HPC capabilities. Designed to lower barriers between computer-aided engineering (CAE) and data analytics, according to the company, Altair One is built to be a unified development environment and offers multi-disciplinary teams “the on-demand HPC critical to complete complex projects quickly and efficiently.”

Altair said the offering gives organizations flexibility to migrate workloads between cloud providers and on-premises environments, “empowering teams to pivot quickly and embrace new technology while avoiding vendor lock-in.”

The Altair One portal is accessible via standard workstations, PCs, laptops, and mobile devices. Tools include:

  • Altair DesignAI – Combines physics-based simulation-driven design and machine learning-based AI-driven design to create high-potential designs earlier in development cycles
  • Altair Material Data Center – A multi-domain material properties repository to help create sustainable, efficient, minimum-weight designs

“Altair One provides a modern, single pane of glass approach to leverage HPC and cloud resources for running computational science applications anywhere and everywhere at scale, which is key to optimizing outcomes and achieving faster time-to-value,” said James R. Scapa, Altair’s founder and CEO.

Altair said availability of its HPC resources means designers, engineers and data scientists can run complex projects without in-house HPC infrastructures. The company also said Altair One enables provisioning of turnkey, scalable appliance clusters on major cloud platforms, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Google Cloud Platform.  The company also offers subscription-based Altair Units that allows customers to pay only for what their employees need when they need it.

“Altair One is a key differentiator because of its ability to provide seamless access to the cloud and delivers unmatched value for Altair’s customers,” said Nidhi Chappell, GM Workload Optimized Compute, Microsoft.

Additional features include the ability to:

  • Launch applications in the cloud with zero download
  • Run complex HPC solver jobs in the cloud within an intuitive user experience
  • Provision turnkey, scalable appliance clusters in a few mouse clicks
  • Securely upload, access, store, and manage data using the Altair One drive
