Xoreax has released IncrediBuild-XGE, a software-based distributed computing solution that accelerates time-intensive computational processes such as simulation and modeling for CAD/CAM, fluid and mechanical dynamics, and 3D analysis, among other applications.
Some simulation scenarios require many hours and even days, said Eyal Maor, CEO of Xoreax. IncrediBuild-XGE transforms sequential data processing into parallel analyses, completing the work in a fraction of the time.
XGE technology transforms a network of regular office PCs and servers into a private cloud in which every node contributes unutilized processing power to form a dynamic, accessible and fault-tolerant HPC environment, eliminating the need for dedicated computer farms and lowering ongoing maintenance costs. IncrediBuild-XGE also allows processing to scale out to public clouds.
The Windows-based technology requires a simple definition file in which the administrator specifies a few parameters, and does not require an API to plug into existing applications. IncrediBuild-XGE distributes computational processes across available resources in the network, resulting in a grid-enabled, accelerated solution with minimal implementation costs and without changes to source code or architecture.
IncrediBuild-XGE is being used in simulation testing of industrial software and equipment to ensure it can operate in any mission-critical situation, reducing processing time from days to a few hours. Sarin, a developer and manufacturer specializing in diamond-cutting analysis systems, has reduced processing time from 40 hours to less than two.
