HPC solutions provider enables users to take advantage of next-generation CFD software
Cupertino, Calif. – September 7, 2011 – ScaleMPTM, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, and the Israeli Computational Fluid Dynamics Center (ISCFDC), today announced a technological partnership and has already secured deployment at a leading, classified aerospace and defense powerhouse.
Organizations worldwide are designing their future products via computational fluid dynamics (CFD), an effective substitute for creating expensive, physical prototypes that provides simulations of liquid and gas interaction with solid surfaces.
“The combination of ISCFDC’s advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solutions, coupled with ScaleMP’s products, gives ISCFDC’s aerospace and defense customers the ability to scale OpenMP®-based CFD simulations and pre/post processing to hundreds of cores, ensuring that users gain a fully tested and robust solution, with superb performance and at commodity pricing,” said ScaleMP CEO Shai Fultheim.
“We are excited to embark on this partnership with ScaleMP,” said Yuval Levy, PhD, founder of ISCFDC. “ISCFDC works with the most demanding CFD clients worldwide, and our software solutions support some of the most advanced product designs being carried out globally. Using OpenMP lets us focus on feature and solver development, and with ScaleMP’s vSMP Foundation our clients can now run larger simulations much faster, without investing in proprietary hardware solutions. Our thorough testing showed that the combination of ScaleMP’s vSMP FoundationTM and x86_64 commodity systems yields record-breaking performance and unbreakable stability.”
