OnScale joins Revolution in Simulation community

Today OnScale announced their sponsorship of Revolution in Simulation, a collaborative community helping to increase the value of engineering simulation software investments through the democratization of simulation. OnScale is providing their expertise in CAE and funding to support the initiative. OnScale will participate as a moderator in the HPC topic as well as lead a new SME topical section coming soon at Rev-Sim.org on MultiPhysics Simulation.

New Rev-Sim.org Portal to help Democratize Simulation

Today a new web portal called Rev-Sim.org was launched to support a growing industry-wide movement to make engineering simulation more accessible, efficient, and reliable; not just for CAE experts but also for non-specialists. “The Rev-Sim.org website provides access to the latest success stories, news, articles, whitepapers, thought leadership blogs, presentations, videos, webinars, best practices and other reference materials to help industry democratize the power of simulation across their engineering, manufacturing, service, supply chain, and R&D organizations.”

ScaleMP Powers Largest Shared-Memory Systems in Canada

ScaleMP announced that the government of Canada has extended the contract for its large shared memory systems acquired from Dell. These SMP systems use vSMP Foundation to aggregate more than 64 Intel Xeon processors each, totaling more than 1500 CPUs per system. The systems are used for a variety of HPC workloads, including computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). “Together with our hardware partners, we have been providing technology to the government of Canada since 2012, and are proud of repeatedly earning their business,” said Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP. “repeat customers are a big part of the vSMP Foundation user community, and we continue to see expansion of our footprint with existing customers along with strong growth in deployments of vSMP Foundation with new ones.”
