Altair Engineering, Inc. has collaborated with the ESI Group to integrate Altair's PBS Professional and e-Compute into ESI Group's Open Virtual Try-Out Space (VTOS) solution. Integrating PBS Professional Grid technology will help ensure optimal use of ESI Group's computing resources, while the e-Compute web portal enables users to submit and manage jobs from an Internet connection.
Open VTOS is a suite of collaborative, industry-oriented virtual engineering applications that simulate a product's behavior during testing. Open VTOS also fine tunes the manufacturing process in accordance with desired product performance, and evaluates the environment's impact on product performance. Using material physics to provide "as good as real" virtual solutions, Open VTOS replaces the trial-and-error processes on real prototypes.
"Our computing resources are not centrally located, and our project managers travel extensively to meet our global manufacturing customers' needs," said Raymond Ni, CSM Solver Director, ESI Group. "This collaboration provides two equally valuable capabilities to our business. PBS Professional allows us to take maximum advantage of our pool of compute resources by efficiently managing our complex HPC workloads wherever they are located. e-Compute makes those resources and our extensive suite of industry-specific applications available to our people at any time and from any location -- as long as there is an Internet connection available."
PBS Professional is an open workload management solution for high performance computing environments. The software maximizes the utilization of computing resources by intelligently scheduling and managing computational workload. By increasing the efficiency of the hardware and software resources, PBS Professional is designed to reduce total cost of ownership and provides business value to Grid computing customers in a number of industries.
Altair's e-Compute is a web portal to computing resources designed to simplify the submission and monitoring of numerically intense jobs, while expanding accessibility through secure communications protocols. Optimized to work with PBS Professional and tightly integrated with popular CAE applications, Altair's e-Compute portal allows engineers to submit and monitor their workloads through common browser interfaces from anywhere they can find an Internet connection.
"This collaboration with ESI Group is a good example of how Altair technologies can increase efficiency and accessibility of valuable computing resources," said Michael Humphrey, vice president of Altair's PBS GridWorks business unit. "Our technology provides immediate time and cost savings while maximizing efficiency for the global ESI Group workforce."
