Take the uncertainty out of buying a new computer cluster: free simulation test on a high performance computer cluster

MINNEAPOLIS, Mar-02-2017 — /EPR COMPUTER NEWS/ — Nor-Tech, the top provider of powerful, user-friendly computers, just announced a free simulation test on a high performance computer cluster for CAE, CFD, FEA software. This is an excellent way for organizations to see the benefits of moving from a workstation to a high performance computer cluster.

The test is a free opportunity for organizations to try simulation software on the newest Nor-Tech high performance computer clusters with the newest high-demand software installed. Also, organizations can integrate their own software into the test computer cluster.

Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig said, “Our clients trust us to take the uncertainty out of buying a new computer cluster or upgrading the computer cluster they currently own. They need to know the software they are currently using or want to use in the future will run better on a computer cluster and reduce time-to-results. The test cluster provides that assurance.”

Nor-Tech guarantees that their high performance computer clusters are easy to set up and use; and clients will not have to wait on the phone for service and support.

“Our test cluster is designed for organizations that need better technology than a workstation,” Bollig said. “Clients who buy a high performance computer cluster typically see a significant improvement in efficiency; better resolution; better use of their engineers; and faster results.”

To test software on the high performance computer cluster, organizations should first contact Nor-Tech for a quick discussion. Then Nor-Tech will add the organization to the schedule. Nor-Tech will then configure the hardware and software for the organization and provide remote access to the test computer cluster. The organization will then run the software and ultimately see the results. Where there is sensitive information involved, Nor-Tech will typically sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). Simulations run on the latest Intel Xeon CPU and NVIDIA GPUs.

Nor-Tech, winner of many technology awards, is famous in the science, university, research, and business markets for powerful, easy to use high performance computer clusters and fast, no wait support. Major recent projects include Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Transportation System; the LIGO Gravitational Project at Cal State Fullerton; and the University of Wisconsin’s IceCube Neutrino Project at the South Pole.

Axceleon Unveils Microsoft Azure Render Farms

Axceleon is actively demonstrating the Microsoft Azure integrated workflow rendering process and render farm to customers and prospects.

Axceleon has released CloudFuzion for Azure and is showing existing Media & Entertainment customers and prospects how easy it is to integrate existing studio workflows into a cloud based render farm on Microsoft Azure with no impact on the artist.

CloudFuzion is integrated with applications such as Autodesk Maya, 3dsMax, Softimage, Adobe After Effects and allows launching of image renders from the application directly to an Azure render farm anywhere in the world. CloudFuzion will move the scene, including any attributes or references, from the studio data repository to the Azure render farm and in turn will move the resulting rendered images back to the studio data repository as part of an automated workflow. The animator or artist is oblivious as to where the images are being processed or rendered.

Also released was a CloudFuzion implementation of a high performance cluster running on Microsoft Azure for use by power utility & energy companies worldwide.CloudFuzion is integrated with applications such as PSLF and SSTOOLS from General Electric Energy, and PSS®E from Siemens and these applications can be run on a CloudFuzion managed Azure cluster.

CloudFuzion is a workflow automation solution, no render wrangler required for media& entertainment industry, with color coded job status, a simple self-service user interface and also supports split frame/tiling and stitching of large 3dsMax and Maya images for further render acceleration along with processor affinity settings to maximize 3D application core usage by machine.

CloudFuzion also enables single threaded applications to use many cores in a multi-core machine or computer. This enhances the speed of processing and further improves the time to results, a major productivity tool for engineering studies and financial analysis.

For nearly 12 years, EnFuzion has been widely deployed in the energy, financial, bioinformatics, telecommunications, scientific research and engineering market segments, as well as for 3D rendering, where it helped users to get more results faster.
