Director HPC/Cloud Technology at Altair Engineering
There is a lot of talk about “cloud computing” these days. But, what does that mean? And how does this new technology apply to computer-aided engineering (CAE)? More specifically, how does it work with HyperWorks applications? For example, suppose you currently run RADIOSS simulations on your local PC overnight, but you have a need to run several at once – or one large analysis that will take a few days. You could buy more (or bigger) computers, but that could take weeks and be very expensive. Instead, could you run these jobs “in the cloud”? The article will try to answer these questions and describe the role Altair is playing.
Altair’s Compute Manager is a web-based app to submit, monitor & manage CAE jobs on distributed resources. With the integration of Altair’s PBS Works workload management solutions and HyperWorks simulation capabilities, it provides a reliable and affordable enterprise simulation platform. Learn how Compute Manager can benefit your HPC environment.
Running custom actions on running or completed jobs
Compute Manager allows you to run custom actions while a job is running or after the job has completed. This capability can be customized for each application definition deployed on Compute Manager and can be a very handy feature to end users. Both types of custom actions have been described below.
