Altair Launches Computer-aided Engineering Suite on AWS

Altair launched its HyperWorks Unlimited - Virtual (HWUL-V) computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite for Amazon Web Services (AWS).

HWUL-V integrates unlimited use of the HyperWorks computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite with PBS Professional, a leading high-performance computing (HPC) workload manager, and application-aware portals for HPC access and remote visualization of big data.

HWUL-V will be offered in all AWS regions globally, including the United States, Europe, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, and Australia, with customers gaining seamless access to HPC-driven CAE regardless of location.

"Leveraging HPC for CAE has historically been restricted to those with significant resources and access to expensive hardware," said Sam Mahalingam, Chief Technical Officer of Altair.  "HyperWorks Unlimited - Virtual eliminates the need to build and support information technology infrastructure to support HPC.  This solution provides access to a wealth of highly accurate solvers that enable engineers to simulate a broad range of physics, along with a world-class workload manager, remote data visualization, and data management, making infinite design exploration affordable, simple, and convenient."
