Free HPC Cluster Benchmarking

Engineering teams are under pressure to create better designs faster, and to perform more frequent simulations throughout the product development process. At the same time, model size and complexity are rapidly expanding, which is taxing the capabilities of even the most powerful workstations.

An on-premise high-performance computing (HPC) cluster can provide that engineering horsepower by giving engineers the ability to offload complex simulations to the cluster while remaining productive on their personal workstations. However, these HPC clusters come with high support requirements and costs.

The use of an HPC Cluster Appliance can reduce the cost to deploy an on-premise cluster and help improve engineering productivity. Quantifying those benefits can be difficult for engineering departments that need to justify the expense of the technology, but there are now tools available that can help engineering teams generate return on investment (ROI) data to help prove out the business case.

TotalCAE has partnered with Dell and Intel to offer a free performance benchmark program that will enable engineers and their managers to calculate the benefits and the advantages of moving from a workstation-centric environment to a Dell HPC cluster based on 2nd-generation Intel Xeon scalable processors managed by TotalCAE.

By accessing the benchmarking tools on this new, dedicated website, engineers can provide a model for analysis, and then receive data comparing the runtimes of the HPC solution with the performance of their current workstations. 

To get started, check out the TotalCAE HPC Performance Benchmark website.
