We’ve made monumental updates and additions to our enterprise computing solutions in 2021 that are helping organizations drive innovation forward even in a year full of unprecedented challenges.  

At SCA21 the Altair team is standing by and thrilled to share what we’ve been working hard on all year! Come back to this page during the virtual event and sign to access exclusive SCA content. 

Acquiring New Technology: 

Altair announced our acquisition of workload management leader, Univa, and I/O profiling company - Ellexus, putting more advanced, diverse HPC optimization solutions at our customers’ fingertips and bringing some of the foremost HPC talent in the world together under one Altair roof. 


Read the blog post by Altair CEO James Scapa about the recent acquisitions.

2020 saw some of the most significant updates to the world’s leading HPC workload manager, Altair® PBS Professional®, to date. Advancements in cloud bursting, high-throughput scheduling, budgeting, and workload simulation are empowering organizations across the globe to achieve unprecedented scale, flexibility, and ROI across computing infrastructure. 

Enter the Contest

Challenge “An Ideal System Architecture for the Convergence of HPC and A”

The adoption of machine learning (ML) has skyrocketed in the past few years, creating new computing demands and challenges. HPC simulations produce large amounts of data, which ML can rely on and benefit from. HPC systems should be designed to serve both scientific and ML applications. Traditionally, HPC has larger compute, storage, and fast network requirements. ML codes can run on both CPUs and accelerators (GPUs), but they are proven to perform faster and more cost-effectively on GPUs.

Containers are playing a major role in delivering ML software, but HPC scientific applications have yet to adapt to a container-based software delivery model. As a result, there are mixed hardware and software requirements when HPC and ML need to coexist. Many sites have proven that it is possible to have a converged infrastructure, but everyone has their own challenges.

This competition is about putting together your ideas for an ideal unified HPC and AI system.

Submission Requirements

  1. Create an A4-sized document briefly describing the architecture of an ideal unified HPC and AI system.
  2. Upload the completed pdf or Word document using the form on this page.
