There is growing demand for solutions that enable increasingly more complex optimization-driven physics and flow simulations to drive decision-making and innovation. GPUs provide the ideal compute resources to handle these more strenuous workloads.
Altair provides enterprise-class engineering software enabling innovation, reduced development times, and lower costs through the entire product lifecycle from concept design to in-service operation.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers fast and scalable computing, including GPU instances and best-in-class cloud storage capabilities that preclude the need to unnecessarily move large amounts of data.
Advanced CFD solvers such as Altair ultraFluidX™ and Altair nanoFluidX™ are optimized on the Oracle Cloud to provide overnight simulation results for the most complex cases on a single server. ultraFluidX provides fast prediction of the aerodynamic properties of passenger and heavy-duty vehicles, buildings and other environmental use cases. nanoFluidX predicts the flow in complex geometries with complex motion, such as oiling in powertrain systems with rotating gears and shafts, using the Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) simulation method. Both solvers are now available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and can leverage GPU instances, bringing the power of HPC to advanced CFD simulation.
Altair transforms design and decision making by applying simulation, machine learning and optimization throughout product lifecycles. Altair’s simulation-driven approach to innovation is powered by an integrated suite of software which optimizes design performance across multiple disciplines encompassing structures, motion, fluids, thermal management, electromagnetics, system modeling and embedded systems, while also providing data analytics and true-to-life visualization and rendering.
Why Oracle Cloud?
At Oracle Cloud we want to bring the power of supercomputing to every engineer and scientist. To deliver on this vision, we strive to achieve the best performance in the cloud for our HPC customers, investing in technologies like bare-metal compute, high performance networking, and NVMe SSD based high performance storage.
“We find that access to GPU compute resources can be challenging for our customers. The integration with Oracle’s cloud platform addresses this challenge, and provides customers the ability to use GPU-based solvers in the cloud for accelerated performance without the need to purchase expensive hardware. Ultimately this leads to improved productivity, optimized resource utilization, and faster time to market.”
