Like the OTOY news we brought you earlier this week, Troy, Michigan-based Altair Engineering has announced HyperWorks Unlimited for Amazon Web Services (AWS) at the re:Invent global AWS User Conference, happening this week (Nov 11-14) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Altair HWUL-V integrates unlimited use of the HyperWorks® computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite with PBS Professional, a leading high-performance computing (HPC) workload manager, and application-aware portals for HPC access and remote visualization of big data.
This solution enables organizations to manage the entire simulation lifecycle on the cloud. Moreover, Altair’s licensing model is unique in the industry, providing a strong value proposition for the enterprise as well as for small to medium-sized businesses. HWUL-V will be offered in all AWS regions globally, including the United States, Europe, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, and Australia, with customers gaining seamless access to HPC-driven CAE regardless of location.
“Leveraging HPC for CAE has historically been restricted to those with significant resources and access to expensive hardware,” said Sam Mahalingam, Chief Technical Officer of Altair. “HyperWorks Unlimited – Virtual eliminates the need to build and support information technology infrastructure to support HPC. This solution provides access to a wealth of highly accurate solvers that enable engineers to simulate a broad range of physics, along with a world-class workload manager, remote data visualization, and data management, making infinite design exploration affordable, simple, and convenient.”
“Altair’s cloud solutions, namely HyperWorks Unlimited – Virtual on AWS, allow us to seamlessly scale our CAE needs through a simple application-aware, web browser gateway. We use HyperWorks on the cloud exactly the same way we would use it on our desktops, with the added ability of setting up large runs directly on the HPC infrastructure and post-processing all the runs on the server side, eliminating the need for downloading large result files. For companies like ours looking to do large-scale exploration, the ease of instantaneously accessing CAE and HPC without the massive integration expense and large deployment time is extremely beneficial. Altair is uniquely eliminating the barriers to HPC with its technologies and business model on the cloud,” said Martin Öman, Chief Operating Officer at LeanNova of Sweden.

Altair Engineering has been showing its technology, including CAE solvers, at the AIA National Convention two years in a row now and we have awarded their presence in our BEST of SHOW program. This latest move continues to demonstrate the leadership being executed in the company, with smartly placed CAE services via the cloud. Lowering the barrier to utilization of CAE and from remote corners of the globe is highly useful to the lean manufacturing movement and engineering startups everywhere. HyperWorks is currently at version 12 on the desktop and runs on Windows and Mac environments.
