HPC Cluster for OpenFOAM with distributed parallel and hardware accelerated 3D support.
HPCBOX provides intelligent workflow capability that lets you plug-in cloud infrastructure into your application pipeline giving fine grained control on your HPC cloud resources and applications. HPCBOX combines cloud infrastructure, applications and managed services to bring supercomputer technology to your personal computer.
Features and Benefits of using HPCBOX for your Simulation Engineering:
Control and Elasticity
- Control project costs by scaling up or down at the pace of changing business requirements and paying for only what you use.
- Improve speed-to-market by running jobs in parallel and generating high-quality prototypes with minimal wait time.
Rich Desktop Experience
- HPC Cloud user experience similar to a personal computer.
- Use your applications with their native GUI and get rid of web page job submission limitations.
- Empower collaboration by enabling distributed teams to work from anywhere.
Intelligent Workflow Capability
- Build and deploy complex HPC workflows using a single platform on Microsoft Azure.
- Enhance product design iteration and optimization by leveraging digital twin with HPC Simulation and Analysis.
Various applications which benefit from using HPC are available on the HPCBOX platform.
The following applies to this offering
- You must register and have your account activated on HPCBOX Portal (see links below). This will give you access to the latest version of HPCBOX-CONNECT-APP for accessing your HPCBOX cluster.
