|Rick Watkins - Oil and Gas Strategic Account Manager – Altair|
In this article, we will be looking at such trends as the impact of globalization and cloud-based services. How have oil and gas companies evolved and embraced new IT demands? What pressures are these companies feeling now and how will that impact the way they manage their IT infrastructure moving forward? These questions and their answers are driving Altair’s product development philosophy for all aspects of our business.
There is a common saying in the oil and gas industry that “the age of easy oil is over.” Of course this refers to the need to recover today’s reserves in deeper and more remote locations than ever before. To be economically viable, any potential project must undergo greater scrutiny, analysis and testing. Coupled with the rapidly growing demand of the world’s existing and developing consumers, the risk of failure has maintained parity with reward for success, but each is measured in the billions of dollars. Altair HyperWorks is enabling scientists and engineers to create better numerical models and simulations of the earth’s subsurface topology. The success or failure of the recovery process in these complex formations is dependent on understanding how the structural and fluid mechanics of a rock formation will interact with the effects of the drilling, completion and production phases.

Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 is a new HPC platform from Microsoft that is specifically designed to run parallel, high performance computing applications which takes advantage of the simple and familiar Windows operating environment. Clients running RADIOSS on Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 managed clusters can increase job throughput allowing more time to enhance product performance and quality while decreasing time-to-market.
“Enabling RADIOSS, a highly parallelized finite element solver, on Microsoft’s new Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 platform allows our HyperWorks user community to fully exploit the computational power of clusters to develop products faster. Many of our customers already run design simulations within a Windows-based environment, and the new RADIOSS integration with Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 affords these customers the opportunity to shorten job cycle times, running more simulations while remaining in the familiar and intuitive Windows environment,” said Piush Patel, director of partner programs at Altair Engineering.

“Companies such as Altair are an essential part of making technical computing power more broadly available and accessible,” said Bill Hamilton, Director, Technical Computing, Microsoft Corp. “With RADIOSS enabled for Windows HPC Server 2008 R2, Altair helps ensure that our joint computer-aided engineering customers speed time to insight.”
