Altair Engineering Inc. has announced that PBS Works has partnered with Intel Corporation to optimize its software for future Intel Many Integrated Core (Intel MIC) products. The strategic partnership was formed to proactively ensure that as the first commercially available Intel MIC product, codenamed “Knights Corner,” is launched broadly, PBS Professional will be able to schedule jobs onto both Intel Xeon processors and Intel MIC co-processors without requiring additional technical support.

Intel has provided Altair early access to the Intel MIC software development platform, codenamed “Knights Ferry,” and early versions of the software stack. The advance integration efforts between the two companies will help ensure integration of PBS Professional, Altair’s EAL3+ security certified commercial-grade high-performance computing (HPC) workload management solution.

Key benefits of optimizing PBS Works for Intel MIC include access to Altair solvers, beginning with RADIOSS, enabling Intel customers to take advantage of Intel MIC architecture, and access to PBS Professional, allowing organizations to initiate HPC jobs.
