Rutherford, NJ (January 9, 2008) — With the goal of expanding access to high-performance computing resources for CFD and CAE practitioners worldwide, Intelligent Light is working with Microsoft to deliver new capabilities for the mid-range technical computing market. The collaboration will bring expertise and accessibility together as a part of a turnkey end-to-end solution stack for simulation driven organizations.
"Engineers' appetite for improving their understanding and their design solutions is insatiable. Our customers continue to increase their reliance on simulation and high performance workflow. Windows Compute Cluster Server and Windows HPC Server 2008 bring the power of high-performance computing to wholly new segments of our markets while promising to decrease the operational cost in many well established environments," said Steve M. Legensky, General Manager at Intelligent Light. "The availability of FieldView products running on Windows Compute Cluster Server will bring large data capabilities to many engineers and organizations who have previously been unable to effectively deploy HPC solutions."
"By accelerating how real-world phenomena are simulated, high-performance computing has become an essential tool of modern engineering," said Shawn Hansen, Director of HPC Marketing at Microsoft. "Through accelerating simulations on easy-to-deploy HPC clusters, design engineers can amplify productivity by conducting more accurate simulations, exploring more design candidates, and speeding fundamental research. Also, by offering FieldView on clusters that integrate seamlessly with existing Windows infrastructure, Intelligent Light enables engineers to focus more on their core research, and less on IT management."
Engineering HPC solutions for small to midsize companies and departments has traditionally been cost prohibitive. However, Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 and Windows HPC Server 2008 clusters - which are built to integrate seamlessly with the company's existing Windows-based environment - are cost effective to deploy, integrate with existing infrastructures, and easy to manage and use.
"Both Windows and FieldView product families share a long tradition of making technology accessible to the people who use it. FieldView products running on Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 will enhance the simulation capability, productivity, and impact of our joint customers. This also directly contributes to the simultaneous achievement of organizational goals for improving product and research quality, decreasing time to market, and decreasing the costs of product and knowledge development," noted Roger R. Rintala, strategic marketing manager at Intelligent Light.
