New Supercomputing Cloud Software From Altair

TROY — The Troy-based engineering technology developer Altair says it is rolling out PBS Cloud, its latest appliance system to further cloud computing for organizations.

Altair PBS Cloud runs high-performance computing appliances for both public clouds, private clouds, and bare-metal infrastructure. Altair will release Altair PBS Cloud in the first quarter of 2017 following conclusion of a private preview.

Altair PBS Cloud allows IT administrators and managers to model, create, deploy, manage and monitor HPC appliances. They are able to build complex architectures graphically and deploy HPC stacks everywhere securely within minutes. Altair says PBS Cloud provides cost savings to an organization as it allows optimized consumption of resources and automates cloud bursting to handle peak workloads through IT-controlled policies.

“Altair provides solutions that democratize technology for organizations of all sizes to continuously push the boundaries of innovation,” said Sam Mahalingam, CTO, Altair. “With Altair PBS Cloud, creating and maintaining HPC appliances in the cloud is made easy and possible whether or not you have IT resources.”

Altair says PBS Cloud provides benefits to customers beyond  controlling costs. It also increases the efficiency of an organization by expanding its computational power, giving it, for example, the ability to perform design of experiments (DOE). Engineers and scientists will enjoy shorter wait times to complete their work and can run a greater amount of simulations, consequently creating more robust products faster.

Altair will demonstrate Altair PBS Cloud at the Supercomputing 2016 conference Nov. 14-17 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Altair was founded in 1985. The privately held company has more than 2,600 employees at 45 offices in 20 countries. More at
