Video: Benchmarking AMD EPYC on Memory-Bound HPC Applications

In this video, Joshua Mora demonstrates how the new AMD EPYC processor delivers excellent performance for memory-bound HPC workloads including ANSYS and FLUENT. “EPYC strikes the perfect balance of cores/threads, memory, I/O bandwidth and security to deliver excellent performance for many High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads. AMD’s state-of-the-art GPUs combined with EPYC provide excellent solutions for your most demanding HPC applications.”

HPC Speeds NASCAR at OSC

In this video, Ray Leto from Total Sim LLC describes how his firm uses supercomputing resources at OSC to speed NASCAR simulations. “Designers and engineers utilizing common CAD or CAE software on desktop computers often encounter limitations in the modeling and simulation (M&S) they can efficiently perform. High Performance Computing provides an improvement in computational capacity compared to typical general-purpose computers. The increased power and speed that HPC provides allows more detailed models to be simulated faster.”

Rescale Partners with HPC Systems in Japan

Altair Showcases PBScloud.IO at ISC 2017

In this video, Jérémie Bourdoncle from Altair describes the company’s new PBScloud.IO offering for private clouds. “Altair is excited to announce the availability of PBScloud.io, its latest appliance solution to enable and expand cloud computing for organizations. PBScloud.io allows users to model, build and run High Performance Computing (HPC) appliances on both public and private clouds, as well as bare-metal infrastructures.

Exaflow: Collaborating on the Computational Challenges of CFD

“Fluid Dynamics (FD) simulations provide a powerful tool for the analysis of such fluid flows and are an essential element of many industrial and academic problems. The complexities and nature of fluid flows, often combined with problems set in open domains, implies that the resources needed to computationally model problems of industrial and academic relevance is virtually unbounded.”

How PBS Works Makes HPC Easy to Use

In this video from ISC 2017, Bill Nitzberg from Altair demonstrates how easy it is to launch jobs with PBS Pro. “Altair’s PBS Works workload management suite is used by thousands of organizations worldwide to simplify the administration and use of HPC clusters, clouds and supercomputing environments.”

Univa Powers Formula One and More at ISC 2017

In this video from ISC 2017, Gaétan Didier Head of CFD, Sahara Force India Formula One Racing Team describes how he uses Univa software to manage CFD workloads that simply cannot be done in a wind tunnel. After that, Bill Bryce from Univa describes how the company’s software powers simulation for everything from Formula 1 racing to manufacturing and life sciences.
