HPC and Workstation Solutions for Abaqus Users and Others

 

Nor-Tech in partnership with Intel®, NVidia, and Dassault Systèmes / Simulia with their Abaqus software announced today the availability of a no cost opportunity to try out your applications on some of the most advanced HPC clusters available today. This is a great opportunity for you to see how some of the most advanced CAE software available today can increase your ROI when software like Abaqus is used in a hybrid HPC cluster. Don’t let your competition get their products to market ahead of you by continuing to use just Engineering Workstations.

Try Out Your Code on an Abaqus HPC Cluster Today Contact Nor-Tech today for a no cost opportunity to see the performance gain you will get by moving to HPC clusters from desktop or workstation computing. See how Nor-Tech’s over ten years of HPC expertise can help you leverage advances from Intel, NVidia and Simulia’s Abaqus to get your products to market faster than your competition.  Click here to get started on an evaluation today.   *Only software that is designed to use Intel’s® Phi™ 5110P can take advantage of this leading edge technology. At this time Simulia Abaqus is not designed to run on the Intel Phi, however if you own software or are writing software that can take advantage of the Intel® Phi™ contact us today to arrange for a demonstration. Abaqus can take advantage of NVidia Tesla K20X acceleration.
