Nor-Tech now an official ANSYS HPC for CAE integrator
Nor-Tech (Northern Computer Technologies) is now partnered with CAE simulation software giant ANSYS. This is the latest milestone in Nor-Tech’s commitment to make their clients’ transitions from workstations to HPCs effortless.
MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) August 25, 2015
Nor-Tech (Northern Computer Technologies), the leading provider of high-performance, people-friendly computer solutions, completed a rigorous approval process to partner with CAE simulation software giant ANSYS. This is the latest milestone in Nor-Tech’s commitment to make their clients’ transitions from workstations to HPCs effortless.
As a partner with all leading HPC for CAE integration software providers, including ANSYS, Nor-Tech guarantees “an appliance solution”—meaning the HPCs their clients purchase will be as easy to set up and deploy as a basic appliance. This allows clients to start using their simulation software immediately, rather than burning time figuring out how to deploy it.
Among the many value adds that Nor-Tech offers is the opportunity for clients and prospects to test their code on a Nor-Tech HPC. To that end, Nor-Tech has the hardware, software, and expertise to demonstrate the immediate dividends of running software on a Nor-Tech HPC.
David Bollig, President and CEO of Nor-Tech said, “We eliminate the internal struggles of having to install and deploy ANSYS on an HPC. I’m referring to the classic situation that many design engineers face: an engineering department that wants more performance and an IT department that has no idea how to make that happen. This is where Nor-Tech steps in. Our extremely easy to deploy solutions really are as simple as setting up a printer. This allows engineers to take advantage of HPC technology without being constricted by IT. It’s a win-win situation.”
Although more than half of ANSYS installs are still running on workstations. Experts agree that the future for CAE is powerful simulation software, such as ANSYS, installed on an HPC. Leveraging ANSYS on a high performance computer means quicker results and the ability to run more complex simulations. Nor-Tech makes incorporating this ability into the end-user’s environment easy.
ANSYS develops, markets and supports engineering simulation software that predicts how product designs will behave and how manufacturing processes will operate in real-world conditions–engineering simulation is their sole focus. ANSYS offers products across every simulation discipline including: structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, thermal analysis and electromagnetic analysis.
ANSYS’ latest offering, 16.2, allows engineers to create and validate total virtual prototypes of whole systems–simulating electrical, electronic, thermo-fluid, mechanical, and embedded software properties at the same time. ANSYS continues to release a stream of significant solution improvements, developed specifically to sustain speed and support scaling on leading-edge HPCs.
Bollig said, “The collaboration between Nor-Tech and ANSYS means that engineers can count on an easy to configure, thorough, scalable, and accurate simulation and have it run on reliable equipment that is both powerful and easy to deploy.”
