Free Performance Benchmark Program

Whenever I speak to our customers who want to run our software on something more powerful than their desktop computers, I hear the need for quantitative proof of HPC benchmark tests. If you have the same need, you can now get that proof, and it won’t cost you a thing.

We’ve established a Free Performance Benchmark program. Instead of demonstrating evidence of the benefits of HPC on standard benchmark models, we want to show you the time savings that HPC can make possible for your very own model. Continue reading

Never a Dull Moment in HPC – Trend Report

HPC trends

When one of my friends asked me on Saturday night what I like about my job, I started off by saying that “there is never a dull moment in high-performance computing. The computing landscape is constantly changing, the HPC ecosystem collaborations are so numerous and intriguing, and the strategic/economic value of HPC for simulation has never been greater” (or: relevance of HPC for organizations to become more competitive is so compelling).

All of this was very evident at last week’s ISC conference — one of world’s largest high-performance computing events — drawing this year over 2,800 attendees from 56 countries. Let me share with you a few exciting HPC trends observed during this conference.

Accelerate Mechanical Solutions with Intel® Xeon Phi™

intel xeon phi coprocessorRegarding high performance computing (HPC), there are numerous improvements introduced into ANSYS Mechanical APDL16.0. However, I would like to focus this post on a feature that demonstrates the technological leadership of our company. ANSYS Mechanical APDL 15.0 was the first commercial FEA software product to support the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. In ANSYS Mechanical APDL 16.0, we extend support for Xeon Phi hardware to virtually all users. The Xeon Phi coprocessors can now be used on either Linux or Windows, as well as with shared-memory parallel (SMP) and distributed-memory parallel (DMP). Continue reading

Enter the ANSYS Hall of Fame

We are excited to announce the launch of our annual ANSYS Hall of Fame Competition to determine the most eye-popping simulation images and videos from our customers, showcasing how they use ANSYS to realize their product promise.

ANSYS Hall of Fame Past WinnerFor over 5 years, the ANSYS Hall of Fame has featured real-world multiphysics applications from ANSYS customers around the globe. Last year’s winners included Clean Current Power Systems, ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems, SpaceX, Intel and more.

Winners of this competition will gain entry into the prestigious ANSYS Hall of Fame. Ten winners will be selected by a panel of judges to be highlighted in the Hall of Fame, with the top three winning an iPad.

ANSYS Hall of Fame imageThe images or videos entered should demonstrate:

  • Benefits gained from employing ANSYS software.
  • Improvement over past processes and products by using ANSYS.
  • Value to your company of Simulation-Driven Product Development.

The competition is open until November 16, so don’t be selfish and keep all of your great work to yourself. Enter now and see if you really are Hall of Fame worthy.
