Nor-Tech has delivered a turnkey HPC-Appliance with Abaqus, ANSYS®, and Converge™ CFD software using Altair PBS Professional® scheduling software.  The cluster was provisioned with ROCKS® open source clustering suite with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® operating system running on the nodes.  The HPC-Appliance was fully integrated with both software and hardware and ready for rapid deployment into the customer’s network. The cluster HPC-Appliance contained a head/storage node, multiple compute nodes some with GPU acceleration, Ethernet and InfiniBand networking fabrics.  Nor-Tech minimized the internal challenges of deployment and reduced the time from un-boxing to productivity at the customers site.  With Nor-Tech’s continued support, the customer’s engineers are focusing their attention on their product development not HPC cluster administration and maintenance.

Turning the cluster from a computer system into an appliance, Nor-Tech has eliminated the challenges of deploying a HPC solution within the company and make it a just another tool in the engineers toolbox for them to get their job done.  Management appreciates the appliance approach to HPC also, because they can realize the ROI faster.  Nor-Tech HPC solutions are win, win for all parties.
