From chocolate bars to complex designs and why customer service maybe the key to IoT
Last week I attended the Engineering Simulation Show held in Derby with my colleagues Andrew Dean and Jerry Dixon who both attended the show last year and found it really interesting. When we heard it had been expanded from one to two days we were sure to sign up!
The two days consisted of a series of presentations, workshops and an exhibition which attracted a number of delegates representing organisations including Rolls Royce, Cummins, and number of Universities to name just a few. A number of our partners were also in attendance, including ANSYS, the Hartree Centre, Virtual Engineering Centre and Mellanox.
We found many of the delegates are new to High Performance Computing (HPC) and are workstation users, not users of a cluster and therefore accessing the potential benefits of HPC when running their simulations. One particular project that we have been working on in conjunction with ANSYS and Lenovo is the Lenovo Solution for ANSYS; a preconfigured, optimised and supported solution to enable workstation users to migrate to a small cluster and access the benefits of HPC. As we have vast experience in deploying HPC we are able to offer this expertise to help others get started and improve performance and effectiveness in their organisations.
