Toward Ubiquitous High-Performance CAE – Passing CAE into the hands of every engineer, in containers

Containers 1In this article, we argue that – despite the ever increasing complexity of CAE tools, hardware, and system components –engineers have never been this close to ubiquitous CAE, as a common tool, for every engineer (and we are certainly aware that this goal might still be a decade away). The main reason for this next big advance can be seen in the continuous progress of CAE software tools which assist enormously in the design, development, and optimization of manufacturing products. Now, we believe that the next big step towards ubiquitous CAE will be made very soon by new software container technology which will dramatically facilitate software packageability and portability, ease the access and use, and simplify software maintenance and support, and which finally will pass CAE into the hands of every engineer.

Video: Microsoft Azure for Engineering Analysis and Simulation

Tejas azure-300x216Tejas Karmarkar from Microsoft presented this talk at SC15: “Azure provides on-demand compute resources that enable you to run large parallel and batch compute jobs in the cloud. Extend your on-premises HPC cluster to the cloud when you need more capacity, or run work entirely in Azure. Scale easily and take advantage of advanced networking features such as RDMA to run true HPC applications using MPI to get the results you want, when you need them.” See the video HERE.

ACTnowHPC On Demand HPC Cloud Cluster Joins UberCloud Marketplace

ACTnowHPCKansas City (Jan. 15) – The ACTnowHPC on demand cloud cluster this week joined the UberCloud online marketplace, where engineers, scientists and their service providers discover, try, and buy computing power and software in the cloud as a service. ACTnowHPC enables users to harness the power of HPC resources on a pay-as-you-go basis without having to invest in the hardware and infrastructure. “We are pleased to join the UberCloud online marketplace, where our cloud service will give users the opportunity to use our computing power to complete their demanding projects,” said Kyle Sheumaker, President of ACTnowHPC parent company, Advanced Clustering Technologies. “UberCloud and ACTnowHPC share a common goal – to make HPC accessible to those who do not have the resources or infrastructure to meet their computational needs.”  Read the announcement HERE.

Cloud Computing trend unstoppable: Netflix, Juniper, and Intuit explain how Amazon is eating the $3.5 trillion IT industry

amazon-all-in2Last October, at Amazon’s annual re:Invent conference in Las Vegas for its Amazon Web Services customers, Senior VP Andy Jassy presented a  long list of well-known companies who are going “all-in” on Amazon, meaning they’ve made the gutsy decision to shut down all of their own private data centers and instead run their companies on the rented computers, storage, software, and other services served up by AWS. Among these companies are Netflix, Juniper, Intuit, AOL, Hertz, Kempinski, Suncorp, TimeInc, TheGuardian, and many others. “When the data center comes up for lease, what people are doing is looking at, ‘I could spend a big pile of money to refit it, or I could replace it with an AWS account,'” explains Adrian Cockcroft, formerly Netflix’s cloud architect, the man who oversaw Netflix’s use of Amazon through 2014.

UberCloud goes public – with its ubiquitous application software containers

DockerLos Altos, January 01, 2016 — As of today UberCloud puts a stronger focus on its ubiquitous application software containers based on open-source Docker. After 2 years of development, testing and an extended beta program the containers are now ready to run everywhere, and they ease usability, accessibility, and portability challenges for development, execution, and maintenance of engineering and scientific applications in public and private clouds. Early implementations of the UberCloud Containers have been provided for software from ANSYS, CD-adapco, COMSOL, NICE, Numeca, OpenFOAM, PSPP, Red Cedar, Scilab, Gromacs, and others. UberCloud Containers provide software packageability, portability, access and use, rapid deployment, maintenance and support, and their low overhead maintains scalability of the application software across multiple compute nodes. Please see our new container website: http://www.TheUberCloud.com/containers/.

Team 185 – Air flow through an engine intake manifold on Microsoft Azure

Team 185This case study is about air-fuel flow through an engine intake manifold. Increasingly stringent legislation aimed at reducing pollutant emissions from vehicles has intensified efforts to gain better understanding of the various processes involved in internal combustion (IC) engines. In the case of spark ignition engines one of the most important processes is to prepare air-fuel mixture. This mixture circulates to the intake port through a complicated path including air cleaner, intake pipe, and intake manifold. The main objective of this project is to understand the flow characteristics in an intake manifold and to learn how to perform this simulation in the cloud. The simulation framework is developed and executed on Azure Cloud resources running the ANSYS Fluent UberCloud container. Read the Team 185 case study HERE.
