Altair Engineering Ltd and NEC HPC Europe announce Linux cluster alliance
Posted by Altair Engineering Ltd, Wednesday July 23 2003 @ 05:59AM EDT

Coventry, UK - 21 July 2003, Altair Engineering Ltd, a global leader in product design consulting, engineering software and high performance computing technology, has been granted exclusivity by NEC High Performance Computing Europe for the provision of Linux cluster solutions to the United Kingdom and Ireland manufacturing industry. The organisations will work closely together on the marketing, sales, implementation and support of this leading price/performance solution. The parties will combine their extensive application and hardware expertise to deliver a highly optimised turnkey solution.

Dr Royston Jones, Managing Director of Altair Engineering Ltd said, "Altair has deep knowledge of the manufacturing space through offering its comprehensive design toolbox, Altair HyperWorks. This suite contains unique software technologies which accelerate the virtual design process (e.g. optimisation and robust design). Altair's workload management and job scheduler software, PBS Pro, will ensure maximum utilisation of the Linux hardware. The turnkey solution arrives on the client's site containing these technologies and other third party software such as crash simulation (e.g. LS-DYNA) or computational fluid dynamics (e.g. Fluent)".

Dr Jones added, "Two years ago we promoted a vision to hardware vendors of a turnkey software/hardware solution to facilitate rapidly emerging technologies in computer aided engineering software and Linux cluster hardware architectures. Since this time, we have pioneered the implementation of these tools. Ford, for example, achieved return on investment from Altair PBS Pro after just 10 months. Furthermore, NEC has a solid track record in supplying Linux clusters to major manufacturing clients. For instance, Volkswagen has acknowledged NEC’s expertise in system setup and support. With the maturing of the hardware and software technologies, we can accommodate the explosion in virtual design which is now possible. In developing Altair OptiBox, the integrated cluster solution, NEC was clearly identified as a strategic partner to facilitate our vision. They not only provide a highly competitive price/performance but, importantly, minimise the total cost of ownership through their effective support infrastructure. Having strategically placed virtual design at the heart of a company’s process, reliability is paramount".

Dr Andreas Findling, strategic business unit leader for cluster solutions at NEC HPC Europe agreed, "We are excited about the new partnership with Altair. The combination of Altair’s software technology, the reliable NEC HPC Linux environment and powerful hardware from NEC means we can create a solution that perfectly matches the needs of the UK and Irish manufacturing industry."
