MINNEAPOLIS— Nor-Tech (Northern Computer Technologies), an Ansys HPC integrator and leading provider of people friendly HPC solutions for CAE, was recently named an official HPC System Integrator Partner by HP. This gives the company HP’s official stamp of approval for developing and implementing high performance computing solutions for CAE applications worldwide.
Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig said, “We have been working with HP for many years, so they know the level of expertise, experience, attention to detail, and client service that we bring to every project. This latest recognition serves as a specific endorsement of our HPC-related capabilities.”
High performance computers, once limited to only the largest organizations, are becoming mainstream from a cost standpoint, but not in terms of usability. Nor-Tech recognized this issue and created a system that allows even those with the barest technology skills to seamlessly deploy and fully leverage sophisticated HPCs.
Nor-Tech’s HPCs are completely configured and integrated with each client’s existing software and hardware—making the technology as simple to set up as attaching a printer. This is especially valuable for CAE simulations that require significantly more computing power than a desktop/workstation–often in an environment with very little internal IT support.
The ability to expertly match the cluster configuration to the simulation requirements is crucial to maximizing an HPC investment and this is where Nor-Tech shines. Nor-Tech has been developing and implementing smart, cost-effective HPC solutions for over a decade. As a pioneer in the HPC space, Nor-Tech was a five-year member of Microsoft’s HPC advisory board, which assisted Microsoft’s entry into the HPC market.
Nor-Tech offers a variety of HPC clusters, including standard 42U rackmount clusters, GPU clusters, and visualization clusters, as well as their Intel award-winning Portable Cluster.
Working with HPC providers like HP and key CAE software specialists, Nor-Tech delivers a fully integrated solution and vital support services that eliminate HPC complexity and allow CAE personnel to focus their efforts where they are most valuable. Nor-Tech’s simulation software partners, such as Ansys and Dassault Systèmes, are instrumental in developing configurations that fully leverage the hardware.
Nor-Tech Senior HPC Account Executive Bob Dreis said, “We give engineers the processing power to perform simulations and eliminate the complexity. We do this by seamlessly integrating the core components of the client’s environment—transforming the HPC cluster into a turnkey appliance. It’s the same approach with every HPC system we provide—regardless of size. Once the HPC cluster is deployed, we can get an organization up and running on the software within hours. Being able to ask the right questions and incorporate the answers is crucial to ensuring a successful HPC cluster roll out.”
