Nor-Tech Launches HPC Demo Cluster

With the technology, users can trial various CAE applications on the cloud.

Nor-Tech, a provider of HPC (high-performance computing) for CAE solutions, has launched a Demo Cluster for simulation applications.

Simulations run on the latest Intel CPU and accelerators from Intel Xeon Phi as well as NVIDIA GPUs (graphics processing units). The cluster can run a range of applications including:

  • ANSYS Fluent
  • CONVERGE CFD (computational fluid dynamics)
  • COMSOL Multiphysics
Additionally, the Demo Cluster has Rocks Cluster Management Suite, Ganglia, IPMI management, Bright Cluster Manager and DCV Remote Visualization.

“Our Demo Cluster is designed for organizations that ultimately need something beyond a workstation. Clients who have made the transition typically see significant improvement in run times; better resolution; better utilization of their engineering staff; and shorter time to market. It’s a great way for engineers to demonstrate return-on-investment for management,” says David Bollig, president and CEO at Nor-Tech. “It’s an excellent resource for companies that may have recently hired someone with supercomputing skills, but they have nothing to run jobs on. However, it’s also a good way for people to see just how easy our HPCs are to use. If you can use a desktop, you can use one of our HPCs—this sets our solutions apart from competitors.”
