Moving CAE Applications to the Cloud is Getting Easier

Compendium 2018In this Digital Engineering article, Burak Yenier and Wolfgang Gentzsch present the 2018 UberCloud COMPENDIUM  with 13 new case studies about the most recent engineering simulation projects in the cloud. These case studies – again sponsored by HPE, Intel, and Digital Engineering – demonstrate impressively how straightforward it has become to move an engineering simulation to the cloud. Among the projects are the following: Airflow within a Nasal Cavity; Ropax Ferry Performance; Implantable Planar Antenna with ANSYS HFSS; Impurities Transport in a Heat Exchanger Using OpenFOAM; Drug-induced Arrhythmias of a Human Heart with Abaqus 2017; Kaplan turbine flow using OpenFOAM in the Advania Cloud; Peptide Benchmark Using LAMMPS; Neuromodulation in Schizophrenia; Maneuverability of a KRISO Container Ship Model in the Cloud; Racing Car Airflow Simulation; Aerodynamic Study of a 3D Wing Using ANSYS CFX; and MantiumFlow for Studying Race Car Aerodynamics.

IT Infrastructure Modernization: Containers for Dummies

Containers DummiesIn order to modernize IT operations and accelerate app performance, enterprises must focus on consolidating and optimizing their infrastructure with the right mix of hybrid IT. Application software container technology is rapidly becoming the rising star in a field of solutions designed to drive digital transformation. Even in engineering and scientific High Performance Computing, software containers, first developed by UberCloud 5 years ago, dramatically simplify packageability, portability, access, and use of application software in private and public clouds. Download this guide – published by HPE – and learn what containers are, why teams are using them and how best to get started.

9th Graders Designed & Simulated Innovative Aircraft with ANSYS Discovery Live in the Azure Cloud

Norway students14-year old students at Torstad Youth School in Asker near Oslo, Norway, started their “Research in Practice” course in March with the goal of designing and developing a “FlyBoat’. During the course, students have studied physics and other science in theory and practice, and at the end they demonstrated solid knowledge of drag and lift, construction materials, hull shape, stability, forces, and center of gravity, to name a few. In addition, they learned to use ANSYS Discovery Live running in the Azure/UberCloud. The course has been accompanied by Håkon Bull Hove, a civil engineer and technical consultant at EDRMedeso, an ANSYS reseller in the Nordics. “I am very impressed, especially since they have learned to use ANSYS Discovery Live so well,” says Hove.

Opin Kerfi Announced Novel HPC Cloud Services at ISC Conference

Opin KerfiAt the recent ISC Conference in Frankfurt, our cloud partner Opin Kerfi announced its new High Performance Cloud Services for engineers and scientists. Opin Kerfi have since 1985 offered IT services and solutions to domestic and international customers, providing substantial financial benefits due to the green, low-cost energy grid especially to high-performance computing users. Previously offering co-location and dedicated services, Opin Kerfi now offer completely subscription-based cloud- and Software-as-a-Service solutions through the link to UberCloud, making it easy for engineers to run sophisticated software from ANSYS, Dassault Systèmes, Siemens, and more on powerful cloud hardware using UberCloud’s unique HPC container technology. Read more details about Opin Kerfi’s HPC Services HERE.

Software as a Service for ANSYS

Team 193The HPC stack has been getting more and more capable. New hardware, on-demand software licensing, and more. Managing the HPC stack, however, has gotten more complex. Along with HPC hardware, you also need to implement management tools as well as the ANSYS application itself. Then there’s the ongoing tuning, upgrading and maintenance of this sophisticated environment. The Software as a Service (SaaS) stack for ANSYS leverages Advania‘s unique cluster provisioning and management capabilities, developed in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and includes UberCloud‘s production-ready ANSYS software container with full GUI capabilities, providing a no-learning-needed cloud experience. This puts all the ANSYS tools at your fingertips, in a second – including ANSYS FluentANSYS CFX, ANSYS Mechanical Enterprise, ANSYS HFSS – in order to dramatically increase your engineering productivity, as described in more detail HERE.

Elastic HPC Infrastructure: How non-hybrid HPC could be leaving customers behind

Gisli KrIn an interview published on the Advania Data Center (ADC) ‘s website, Gísli Kr., ADC’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “HPC workloads, like the more traditional workload, is going to be variable and have workload spikes.The only reason why your in-house HPC workloads are flat is because you’ve maxed out on your HPC infrastructure. In fact, maybe we have yet to see the true workload spikes and workload trends in HPC, because everybody’s maxing out their local infrastructure all the time to avoid over investment.” And: “I certainly welcome feedback on the “elastic HPC infrastructure” insight. Some may agree, and some may disagree. But the overall trend going forward is certainly clear. Workloads are going to grow,” he says. “If you’re not thinking about Hybrid HPC at this point, then you’re starting to lag behind.” 

The Dilemma: On Premise or Cloud?

Wim SlagterOver the last couple of years, more and more companies are wrestling with the same question: “Shall I continue to invest in on-premise hardware or switch to cloud computing?” In this ANSYS Blog, Wim Slagter suggests to carefully consider eight important questions, such as: How important is business agility for your organization? Do you have significant variations in your simulation workloads? Does your organization have Capex constraints? How important is it to your organization to maintain a sense of control? Do you have plans to enlarge the geographical footprint of your organization? What’s the level of IT support available to you? Does your organization need to address big data analytics and/or internet of things (IoT)? What’s the level of customization required? Read Wim Slagter’s answeras to these questions and his key Takeways HERE.
