Taking the Fear Out of Clusters and HPC for Business Users
Nor-Tech Ships Turnkey Abaqus HPC Appliance
Nor-Tech is taking away the intimidation and complexity of adding high-performance computing to the office by delivering turn-key clusters. Nor-Tech delivered a small office cluster fully integrated with Simulia Abaqus software recently to a new cluster client. Having little to no experience with Linux, the turn-key high-performance cluster provided by Nor-Tech eliminated all concerns when the end user experienced the short window from unboxing to productivity. The client was running jobs within hours of arriving onsite for almost instant productivity improvement within the office.
Wanting the performance boost from Linux without the deployment concerns of not having in-house expertise, Nor-Tech’s appliance approach to cluster deployment was a success for both the end-users and management. The end-users got the performance they needed, while management got the quick ROI they wanted.
As Simulia Abaqus software advances, so does the computing power requirement. Working closely with Simulia, Nor-Tech is able to provide Linux and Windows solutions that meet the computing demands by bringing Abaqus to new levels of performance.
A standard feature of Nor-Tech clusters is a bare-metal recovery media that can restore your cluster in a one step operation in the event of the unlikely event of complete data loss.
Nor-Tech can further ease your entry in HPC CAE appliances by such services as remote monitoring of your cluster and automatic trouble alerting that can notify you and Nor-Tech about component or system failures to help maximize up time. For a more detailed cluster health assessment Nor-Tech can do scheduled health audits of your cluster to check items like system logs, storage space and other items that can impact up time.
