New FieldView 14 Eliminates Per-Processor Software License Fees for HPC-enabled CFD

Early Adopters are Reporting Sustainable Competitive Advantages

FieldView is designed for scalability. Every FieldView 14 license will run on 8 CPU cores per dataset  and  high performance computing (HPC) users can run 64 or unlimited cores at moderate additional cost, eliminating often prohibitive per-processor licensing fees.  Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data management with FieldView 14 makes it easy to work with large amounts of data that reside anywhere: on a local workstation, on-site, remote or cloud-based server without sacrificing performance.  Whether your data is measured in megabytes, gigabytes or terabytes, if you are waiting for data to copy or load, you will benefit from the speed and power of FieldView.

 

FV14 Multi-Windows and Parallel

Sixteen different variations of alpha and Reynolds number are post-processed simultaneously on screen for the AIAA High Lift Prediction Workshop. FV14 permits 8 cores to be used in parallel for each dataset (a total of 128 cores in this example) with no additional license fees.

Where innovation is the lifeblood of the business, FieldView and HPC are allowing winning organizations to outpace competitors and thrive through rapid, knowledge based product development.  Three of the top four Formula 1 racing teams are using FieldView and exploiting HPC for their aerodynamics engineering with dramatically improved results.  Small- and medium-sized manufacturers and consultancies (SMBs) are managing design risk and accelerating their pace of development with HPC and FieldView.  With FieldView 14, some key operations are 100s of times faster than in previous releases.

sc13Intelligent Light has been selected to participate in the new HPC Impact Showcase at SC13.  The HPC Impact Showcase brings real world applications of HPC that make a difference in shaping our world.  The showcase presentations take place on the exhibit floor.

Presentations include:

  • Accelerating Innovation While Reducing Risk – High Impact HPC at a Formula One Team and a Racing Bike Wheels Manufacturer.
    Steve M. Legensky (Intelligent Light)
    Tuesday, Nov. 19, 1:00-1:40.
  • The HPC Initiative at the Council on Competitiveness
    Dr. Cynthia R. McIntyre, Dr. Walter L. Kirchner (The Council on Competitiveness)
    Monday, Nov. 18, 7:30-8:00.
  • HPC, A Journey You Must Take
    Dr. Mohamad S. El-Zein (Deere & Company)
    Tuesday, Nov. 19th, 12:20-1:00.
  • HPC: Where the Rubber Meets the ‘Simulated’ Road
    Chris Baker, Goodyear
    Wednesday, Nov. 20th, 11:40-12:20.
  • When “Big Iron” Isn’t Big Enough
    Matthew H. Evans, Ph.D., Lockheed Martin Corporation
    Thursday, Nov. 21st, 10:20-11:00.

Intelligent Light has been nominated for an IDC HPC Innovation Excellence Award for our work with high volumes of data in a production environment.  A new whitepaper details the way FieldView data management is being used to develop high-throughput workflows that increase capacity and decrease uncertainty in CFD.

We’ve received three nominations for HPCwire Readers’ Choice Awards to be announced at SC13.

  • Best HPC visualization product or technology (FieldView)
  • Best use of HPC application in manufacturing
  • Best use of HPC in the cloud

Intelligent Light VisIt Presentations at SC13 – Booth #4216

The Department of Energy’s open-source VisIt software is the most advanced engine for ultra-scale visualization.  Working with the VisIt community, we are advancing, developing, and demonstrating the ability to use VisIt in a production engineering environment for the most complex of CFD problems, often using in-situ post-processing to achieve high performance with very large data.  As we bring together the strengths of Intelligent Light, FieldView, and VisIt to offer commercially robust and fully supported releases of VisIt, we are honored to welcome a series of presentations in our Intelligent Light booth at SC13.

SC13 HPC Impact Showcase – Accelerating Innovation While Reducing Risk

SC13 HPC Impact Showcase Presentationsc13

Accelerating Innovation While Reducing Risk – High Impact HPC at a Formula One Team and a Racing Bike Wheels Manufacturer

Date: Tuesday, November 19th
Time: 1:00-1:40PM, SC13 HPC Impact Showcase stage on the exhibit floor
Presenter: Steve M. Legensky, Intelligent Light

Abstract: For performance-oriented engineering organizations, high-performance computing (HPC) offers the promise of accelerating performance while reducing risk. The HPC-enabled success of two such organizations will be compared: one with large in-house HPC resources and dedicated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) engineering staff and the other a small engineering and manufacturing company producing consumer products. Common needs and different HPC strategies are discussed. These organizations depend on working with commercial software vendors to develop their capabilities and direct their investments to core skills and knowledge.

Red Bull Racing dominates Formula 1 racing with three consecutive Constructors and Drivers Championships, while Zipp Speed Weaponry has developed leading-edge products that resulted in a doubling of category revenue and 120 new manufacturing jobs for a market leader in a mature segment. The audience will see how different investment and HPC use models are producing extraordinary results and are illustrative of the path forward for innovators in many industries of any size. Through the use of HPC for CFD, these companies rapidly develop and deliver accurate, actionable information to engineers and managers through engineered CFD workflows. Each company has developed the ability to rapidly explore many ideas, put more mature designs into testing and production, and reduce the risks of exploring novel design approaches.

Among the speakers joining Mr. Legensky in The Showcase:

  • Dr. Cynthia R. McIntyre, Dr. Walter L. Kirchner (The Council on Competitiveness)
  • Dr. Mohamad S. El-Zein (Deere & Company)
  • Chris Baker, Goodyear
  • Matthew H. Evans, Ph.D., Lockheed Martin Corporation
