Hewlett-Packard is a platform of choice for ANSYS software users, providing a full range of fast clusters, servers and workstations to run all software products offered by ANSYS, Inc. HP and ANSYS engineers work together to ensure optimum performance and reliable operation. HP submits benchmark data for posting on the ANSYS website. The breadth of HP's technical computing product line matches the breadth of needs among ANSYS users, with price, performance and capability solutions for every budget.

Servers and Storage

HP's cluster platforms include 64-bit Xeon (CP3000), and Opteron (CP4000) nodes. HP's clusters are offered with a choice of Linux (Red Hat or SUSE) or Windows HPC Server 2008, switched-fabric interconnect, and cluster management software. HP's SMP servers are popular among ANSYS users needing very large memory for pre-and post-processing applications. HP has the worldwide expertise, financing and support to meet the needs of global engineering teams.


HP Z820 workstations now come with two 8 core processors and up to 512GB of memory, making the HP Z820 an ideal platform for many ANSYS applications. The workstations can be connected in workstation clusters to provide even more cores and memory to speed up solvers.
