Huawei and Altair Sign Memorandum of Understanding to Jointly Pursue High-Performance Computing Opportunities and Build Industrial Simulation Cloud Solutions

Huawei and Altair have signed a Memorandum of Understanding at CeBIT 2017, marking the beginning of cooperation for High-performance Computing and Cloud Solutions. The two companies will cooperate with each other to develop industrial simulation cloud solutions for their customers. In accordance with the terms of the cooperation, they will build a joint test center in Huawei's Munich OpenLab to carry out software and hardware optimization tests based on Altair's PBS Works and Huawei's HPC and cloud platforms. Taking full advantage of the high performance and reliability of Huawei's HPC and cloud platforms, the joint tests will help customers reduce software integration and performance verification workloads considerably and simplify the deployment and management of industrial simulation cloud platforms. Altair PBS Works is the leading HPC workload management suite that offers comprehensive, reliable HPC resource management solutions and policy-based job scheduling solutions.

Altair to Offer High Performance Computing Solutions on Oracle Cloud Platform

Altair announced a business collaboration with Oracle to build and offer High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions on the Oracle Cloud Platform. This follows Oracle's decision to name Altair's PBS Works as its preferred workload management solution for Oracle Cloud customers. Altair PBS Works running on the Oracle Cloud Platform offers independent software vendors (ISVs) faster time to market on a proven HPC platform to address markets such as Oil & Gas, Insurance Information Processing and the internet of things (IoT). The Altair HPC advantage is the ability to quickly jumpstart an ISV interested in HPC with short time-to-market for their solutions on a proven platform. As part of the collaboration, Altair will work closely with Oracle to develop turnkey solutions allowing users to access cloud HPC resources in the Oracle Cloud Platform from any web-enabled device. These solutions will leverage Altair's industry leading PBS Works job scheduling solution on the Oracle Cloud to enable intuitive web portal access and secure workload management for rapid, scalable access to Oracle Cloud Platform HPC resources. Initial solutions will target life sciences, energy, and academia increasing HPC demand to run compute-intensive workloads including DNA sequencing, advanced simulations, and big data analytics to test new concepts or products in virtual space.

Airbus Will Implement New Pre- and Post-Processing Tool Based on Altair's Solutions HyperMesh and HyperView as the New Platform Worldwide

Altair has won a benchmarking competition, and as a result Airbus will implement a new pre- and post-processing tool based on Altair's solutions HyperMesh and HyperView as the new platform worldwide.
