Increasing Speeds, Reducing Costs for Growing Simulation Requirements

The auto industry is entering an unprecedented era of innovation as it moves toward new lightweight materials and autonomous cars. Manufacturers have to integrate more advances into each design cycle, which requires fast performance for LS-DYNA* crash simulations.
The Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF) offers an essential resource to meet these needs, a flexible blueprint for cluster designs that can scale affordably to address even the most extreme requirements. Intel SSF brings together Intel’s latest compute, memory and storage, fabric, and software technologies to help organizations scale performance more cost-effectively for complex workloads.

Design Faster and More Affordable with Intel® Technologies

Intel technologies make is possible to run project of all sizes on local workstations. You can do everything locally when you upgrade to workstations powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, which let industrial designers, and anyone else, handle complex design project on individual, local workstations. With graphics capabilities integrated directly on the processor, workstations powered by Intel Xeon processors eliminate the need for a separate video card.


Slash Your MSC Nastran* Simulation Runtimes by Up to 50 Percent

Doubling performance for your most complex MSC Nastran simulations can deliver a range of high-value options for your engineering and design teams. You may be able to obtain results hours or even days sooner to shorten your design cycles. Or you may choose to test more design options to accelerate innovation, or explore a wider range of coupled variables to gain a deeper understanding of real-world product behavior.


Achieve Fast, Scalable ETL with Apache Hadoop* Running on Intel® Architecture

Organizations across public and private sectors are gathering and analyzing “big data” to forecast market conditions more accurately and to make better decisions about the issues that are most critical to their success. They sort through vast amounts of data from weather and economic reports, discussion forums, news sites, social networks, wikis, tweets, and blogs. They then analyze relevant data more deeply to gain new insights into their customers, operations, and competitors. Some even apply predictive analytics to identify the opportunities and risks they are most likely to face a month from now, a year from now, or even five years from now.


A Mission-Critical Big Data Platform for the Real-Time Enterprise

As the volume and velocity of enterprise data continue to grow, extracting highvalue insight is becoming more challenging and more important. Businesses that can analyze fresh operational data instantly—without the delays of traditional data warehouses and data marts—can make the right decisions faster to deliver better outcomes.
Business Oriented Solution (BOS) software from the Nomura Research Institute (NRI) answers this challenge. Running on enterprise-class servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v3 family, BOS turns operational data into a rich source of real-time business insight. There is no need to duplicate, pre-manipulate, or move data. A highly optimized in-memory database schema enables transactions and queries to be performed simultaneously and at high speed on the same data set.


ANSYS* and Intel® Team Up to Shrink Simulation Timelines

ANSYS, a world leader in simulation software, announced on March 12 that its premier engineering simulation software product, ANSYS* Mechanical* APDL 16.0 (ANSYS* Mechanical* 16.0), will ship with built-in, optimized support for Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors.

Structural engineers and designers using ANSYS* Mechanical* 16.0 will be able to tap into the power and performance of highly-parallelized, multicore processing to speed engineering workloads, and at an affordable price.

Combine ANSYS* Mechanical* with the Intel® Xeon® Phi™ Coprocessor for Dramatic Performance gains in both Windows* and Linux* Environments

Incremental performance gains for engineering simulations can improve productivity and shrink product development timelines and time to market. Doubling performance can transform entire workflows, allowing design teams to run more and larger simulations in less time to improve innovation, quality, safety, reliability, manufacturability, and time to market.

Intel® Xeon® Phi™ Processor Application Performance Proof Points

These proof points (in key business segments, such as manufacturing, life sciences, finance, energy, and more) show performance increases from the Intel Xeon Phi processor, including comparisons to other products.

Software Defined Storage with Intel® Enabling Technologies

Software-Defined Storage is a software layer that manages storage infrastructure.  Software developers have the flexibility to use a variety of hardware, such as processors, network cards, and hard drives with their storage managing software to develop their own SDS solutions.  We share some examples of developers using Intel® enabling technologies (features of the hardware and/or software) to develop their SDS solutions. 


Creating a New Standard in Virtual Crash Testing

Altair advances frontal crash simulation with help from Intel® Software Development products. By using state-of-the-art hybrid programming mixing different parallelization techniques to achieve more scalability and deliver optimal performance for very large number of processors.


Simple Path to Dramatic Performance and Cost Improvements

Moving workloads without application changes to Red Hat* Enterprise Virtualization and the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family can help slash data center costs.


Performance Gains for Ayasdi* Analytics* on the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8890 V3

Ayasdi* deploys vertical applications that utilize Topological Data Analysis to extract value from large and complex data. The Ayasdi* platform incorporates statistical, geometric, and machine-learning methods through a topological framework to more precisely segment populations, detect anomalies, and extract features.

Performance Gains for SunGard*’s Adaptiv Analytics* on the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8890 V3

SunGard*’s Adaptiv Analytics* allows traders to run pre-deal cost-of-credit calculations. Due to the volume and complexity of products, these calculations are often time consuming, causing delays that can lead to missed opportunities or taking action with incomplete information.

Simulation-Driven Design Has Never Been Easier

Altair* and Intel® offer a simple, cost-effective on-ramp to a complete simulation-driven design platform. You can start with public cloud solutions to demonstrate value. You can then grow your capability in the public cloud, or you can transition to simple and powerful onsite solutions that give you tighter control over your systems and data.
