Altair Engineering has launched HyperWorks Unlimited, a managed private cloud solution offering companies a fully configured hardware and software appliance for computer-aided engineering (CAE). This new solution provides unlimited use of all Altair software including HyperWorks applications and PBS Works workload management tools. With HyperWorks Unlimited, users no longer have restricted access to HyperWorks software applications, making high-performance computing (HPC) far more accessible for the CAE community.
In addition to being fully optimised for running massively parallel applications such as CFD and FEA solvers, HyperWorks Unlimited also includes Altair’s Display Manager, a remote visualisation Web-based portal that allows graphically intensive, interactive applications to be accessed on HyperWorks Unlimited, including in networks with challenging latencies. HyperWorks Unlimited is designed and configured to be HPC ready, providing greater accessibility to run pre- and post-processors ‘out of the box’ within the user’s own location, and is completely managed and supported by Altair.
The company has partnered with SGI as the primary hardware provider for HyperWorks Unlimited, offering full capabilities of compute, networking and storage resources.
