Increasingly, business success will be driven by the deployment of a transformational digital strategy. Future product development processes will exploit innovative digital design technologies (e.g. optimisation, machine learning, artificial intelligence etc.) to deliver product differentiation. The availability and flexible access to High Performance Computing (HPC) is a key facilitator. The more we simulate, the more we innovate.
For over two decades, Altair has developed not only the engineering simulation software (Altair HyperWorks) but also the middleware software (Altair PBSWorks) which allows efficient utilisation of ‘On Premise’ HPC and seamless access to Cloud Computing to manage the inevitable peaks in workload. Altair’s HPC software licence model together with the availability of inexpensive computing is facilitating rapid and innovative simulations.
Contents of the Day
This free to attend informative event demonstrated how IT teams could gain flexibility in compute capacity by balancing both on premise and cloud resource; and how engineering teams could access new simulation capability quickly and cost effectively.
The morning session focused on the middleware enablers (Altair PBSWorks) which monitors the utilisation of the HPC ‘On Premise’ asset and also facilitates seamless access to the Cloud infrastructure. A live demonstration of Altair's ‘On-Premise’ HPC and Oracles Cloud infrastructure was performed.
The afternoon session showcased applications where flexible HPC can remove potential barriers to entry. This included access to large scale compute to perform advanced optimisation or new hardware architectures (e.g. GPU’s) to access next generation simulation technology.
Who Should Attend?
The seminar was constructed to appeal to IT Manager & Directors, Engineering Managers & Directors, Head of Design and Company Strategists. The day provided an opportunity to learn, discuss, and demystify issues around both the economics and flexibility of ‘On-Premises’ and Cloud with Altair providing a business assessment from its own consultancy division.
