TROY, Mich., Dec. 11 -- Altair today announced the addition of a powerful new computing performance analytics tool to GridWorks, its suite of on-demand grid computing technologies. GridWorks Analytics empowers IT administrators with a clear vision into the operational efficiency and utilization of their computing infrastructure, providing better information to assist with the planning of required hardware and software, and user and group priorities.
GridWorks Analytic's intuitive design delivers a turn-key reporting environment and provides end users with the ability to automatically generate reports "out-of-the-box" within a Web 2.0 framework. Once deployed, IT administrators will be able to gain a better understanding of usage trends for capacity planning, verify project planning assumptions to meet deadlines, extract accounting data allowing for chargeback and the ability to track hardware and software license use to optimize ROI.
GridWorks Analytics provides a variety of detailed reports of historical data for IT administrators, providing unmatched insight into how computing resources are being utilized. Reports can be automatically generated that visualize data with graphs and charts. Each report is customizable and can be securely published directly inside the web 2.0 framework. Access is role based and provides views at either the individual or group level.
"GridWorks Analytics allows users to easily interact with performance and computing usage data to create standard or personalized reports," said Dr. Bill Nitzberg, chief technology officer of GridWorks. "Altair is focused on helping customers achieve a higher productivity level and better utilization of existing computing resources. GridWorks Analytics is a powerful tool to do this."
GridWorks Analytics "out-of-the-box" reporting features include:
GridWorks On-Demand-Licensing Model
Users only pay for what they use where customers can enable their entire infrastructure but only pay for concurrent usage of licenses.
Flexible software licenses that can dynamically float across enterprise computing resources, even geographically separate systems to meet changing needs of users.
A single on-demand computing environment that intelligently schedules applications onto multi-core based infrastructures, maximizing return on computing capital investments.
The Altair Store, an automated online facility that enables customers to purchase and download GridWorks software around the clock from any location is now available.
