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.
