Altair Inspire update accelerates simulation-driven design

Today Altair updated Altair Inspire, the company’s fully-integrated generative design and simulation solution that accelerates the creation, optimization, and study of innovative, structurally efficient parts and assemblies. The latest release offers an even more powerful and accessible working environment, enabling a simulation-driven design approach that will cut time-to-market, reduce development costs, and optimize product performance. “Inspire enables both simulation analysts and designers to perform ‘what-if’ studies faster, easier, and earlier, encouraging collaboration and reducing product time to market.”

Altair Rolls Out Inspire and Altair 365 for Product Development

Today Altair announced the release and immediate availability of the Altair Inspire simulation-driven design platform, and the Altair 365 cloud collaboration platform. The Altair Inspire platform enables manufacturers to leverage simulation to drive the entire design process, accelerating the pace of innovation and reducing time-to-market.

Altair Steps up to Azure Cloud with Inspire Unlimited

Altair software is now part of the Inspire Unlimited software-as-a-service offering available on the Azure cloud. “Unlike the HyperWorks Unlimited Appliance, where performance is based on the number of nodes, Inspire’s scale requirements are based on the number of simultaneous users; there could be 1,000 engineers working together at a time,” says Sam Mahalingam from Altair. “We felt that the HPC environment in Azure was architected to meet the type of back-end requirements we needed for Inspire.” Altair uses Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, with NV instances powered by NVIDIA Tesla M60 GPUs.
