Dezineforce Microsoft plug-in

The Dezineforce design optimisation and decision support suite is now available as a plug-and-play appliance, incorporating an easy-to-deploy Microsoft HPC cluster.

The new, plug-and-play, appliance allows on-site deployment of Dezineforce's design search and optimisation and decision support suite, with workflows that integrate industry-standard and customer proprietary simulation tools on a Microsoft HPC cluster.

Dezineforce search and optimisation tools enable designers to explore design or operating spaces more comprehensively. They are deployed as part of the design process to help designers gain greater insight into the performance and behaviour of their designs. Decision support tools help designers make sense of the large amounts of raw data generated by simulations, enabling them to make better design decisions. The compute power of the Microsoft HPC cluster dramatically reduces the time needed to complete the end-to-end engineering design search and optimisation process.
