The fact that all three organizations have spent so much time configuring and perfecting the site and tool demonstrates how strongly we back the return of transitioning from a workstation to an HPC cluster for FEA simulations.
MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) January 27, 2016
Nor-Tech just announced a new site for demonstrating the ROI of upgrading to an HPC cluster for Abaqus FEA simulations. The ROI tool, a collaboration between Intel, Dassault Systèmes’, and Nor-Tech, provides a real time estimate of time and cost savings per simulation.
Benchmark tests show dramatic performance increases and significant cost benefits of running Abaqus FEA on an Intel Cluster Ready Certified cluster with next gen Intel Xeon processors.
Nor-Tech’s high-performance cost-effective, easy to deploy and use Linux or Windows-based HPC computing clusters streamline multiple simulations. Speed-up is realized on all FEA simulations, with the most impressive improvements on medium-to-large-sized projects.
Nor-Tech has been at the forefront of supercomputing innovation, delivering HPC solutions for nearly a decade. The company offers a variety of HPC clusters, including standard 42U rackmount clusters, GPU clusters, visualization clusters, workgroup clusters, office clusters, and portable clusters.
Abaqus FEA, a SIMULIA product developed by Dassault Systèmes, is a scalable suite of unified analysis products that allows all users to collaborate and share simulation data and approved methods without the loss of information fidelity. The product suite offers powerful solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems that cover a spectrum of industrial applications. Leading organizations are leveraging Abaqus Unified FEA to consolidate processes and tools, reduce costs and inefficiencies, and gain competitive advantage.
Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig said, “We are excited to embark on this collaboration with Intel and Dassault Systèmes. The fact that all three organizations have spent so much time configuring and perfecting the site and tool demonstrates how strongly we back the return of transitioning from a workstation to an HPC cluster for FEA simulation applications.”
