Advania Data Centers, Numeca, and UberCloud Help Advance Fluid Dynamic Research

Team 201 1

Numeca International, a leader in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and multiphysics software, has announced it will be contracting with Advania Data Centers to advance its High Performance Computing (HPC) offerings. Working with Advania Data Centers and their partner UberCloud, Numeca will now be able to offer its engineering customers the opportunity to run Numeca’s design, analysis and optimization software in the cloud and on demand. This will greatly enhance their ability to tackle complex calculations and improve their flexibility to test them on demand, all while providing them with an HPC environment that accelerates their computing capacity.

Microsoft lets you move TERABYTES of data to Azure incredibly quickly

Azure Fast Data Transfer

A new high-speed cloud tool that can move up to four terabytes of data to Azure in just an hour has been launched by Microsoft. Fast Data Transfer is aimed at companies and organisations that need to transfer a large number of files from their servers to the cloud, or want to maximize their internet connection. Four terabytes is the equivalent of more than 18.3 million 200-page books, 6,452 CDs or 932 DVDs. Fast Data Transfer works by using all the available bandwidth in an internet connection, even when the user is sending information over long distances. Information that travels a long way via copper and fiber-optic cables will often need “amplifying” to ensure it reaches its destination. Microsoft’s solution, which runs on Windows and Linux, is up to 10 times faster than similar transfer tools and also offers options for enhancing performance. Read all the great details about this tool HERE.

ISC High Performance – Intersect360 Forecasts Strong Growth of HPC Cloud Services

Addison Snell ISC18HPC in the cloud is one of those “insanely great” ideas that, failing to fire, year after year recedes before our expectations. Until, that is, last year, according to industry watcher Addison Snell, CEO of Intersect360 Research, which he said was a “break-out year” for HPC in the cloud. The hot growth segment of the industry in 2017 was cloud HPC which grew by 44 percent to $1.1 billion, according to Intersect360, exceeding the billion-dollar mark for the first time. “HPC cloud computing really had a break-out year,” Snell said, “which we’ve been waiting for.” Intersect360 expects cloud HPC to continue its hot pace, reaching $2 billion next year and $3 billion in 2022. One of the growth factors, Snell said, is the maturation of licensing models, particularly for ISV codes in the HPC space. “It got easier in 2017 to migrate your Abacus license to the cloud, or Fluent, and that caused a lot of the spike for the higher value components, like SaaS.” Read Snell’s HPC market summary from Doug Black on HPCwire HERE.

ISC High Performance – Hyperion HPC Cloud Market Forecast

Earl Joseph ISC18

At the ISC18 Conference last week in Frankfurt, Hyperion CEO Earl Joseph said the industry in Q1 of this year continued the momentum achieved 2017, and he expects the industry to grow at a healthy 10 percent annually through 2022. For 2017, industry server revenues totaled $12.3 billion (up from $11.2B in 2016). Joseph also pointed to HPC offerings from public cloud service providers are a source of growth. “The cloud portion is lifting the market, too,” Joseph said. “A big question was: Will people stop spending on-premise and spend more on the cloud. Across the market, that doesn’t happen. It’s like the cluster revolution of 15-20 years ago. When you can do more HPC, which really is doing more R&D in general, you’re more successful. And organizations and governments tend to give you more money. We generally are seeing the cloud lifting the market as a whole and bringing more money and expenditures into organizations.” Read Joseph’s HPC market summary from Doug Black  on HPCwire HERE.

From the Data Center to the Edge and to the Cloud The Future of HPC Is Hybrid

Jean-Luc AssorToday, high-performance computing (HPC) can support the entire product lifecycle from design to operations. This requires HPC to embrace hybrid models across the edge, core data centers, and cloud. One of the main attractions of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that it continuously provides manufacturers with sensor data from the ongoing operation of devices, machines, and facilities. This information forms the basis for an improved user experience and improved operations such as predictive maintenance, fault analysis via digital twins. New IoT use cases like predictive maintenance fuel HPC growth. However, this very HPC growth drives some underlying challenges and pressure on HPC to embrace new deployment models and technologies. In his CIO Review article, Jean-Luc Assor, Worldwide Manager Hybrid HPC at Hewlett Packard Enterprise describes the major challenges and the opportunities for companies to embrace new deployment models and technologies.

Compendium of Case Studies on Technical Computing in the Advania Data Centers Cloud

Advania Compendium

UberCloud and Advania have helped manufacturers to move (part of) their engineering workload to the Advania Data Centers Cloud. In many cases we select Advania because of its excellent HPC bare-metal performance and high scalability (up to hundreds of compute cores). The recent Advania/UberCloud Compendium contains 6 selected engineering case studies, about  engineering simulations performed in the Advania Cloud, drawing from a select group of projects undertaken as part of the UberCloud Experiment and sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel. Case studies are dealing with: Complex Blood Flow through Cardiovascular Medical Device Using OpenFOAM; Simulation of Impurities Transport in a Heat Exchanger Using OpenFOAM; Development and Calibration of Cardiac Simulator to Study Drug Toxicity; Studying Drug-induced Arrhythmias of a Human Heart with Abaqus 2017; Kaplan turbine flow simulation using OpenFOAM; and Neuromodulation in Schizophrenia. You can download a copy of the compendium HERE.
