Understand How High-Performance Compute Can Accelerate Your Simulation Throughput

Are you limiting the size or amount of detail of simulation models due to compute capacity and/or turnaround time limitations? Many engineers and designers are wasting time and effort in reducing a model’s size or complexity to be able to run simulations on computers constrained by the performance, memory, and storage limits of a single system. Advances in ANSYS 18, combined with the latest generation of HPC products, provide a viable, affordable solution.

Join us to see how Hewlett Packard Enterprise puts HPE Apollo Systems and ANSYS 18 to the test. You will receive first-hand access to the latest benchmark results and the recommended configurations to achieve similar results. Learn from HPE and ANSYS partners Dasher Technologies and X-ISS about the benefits their customers have realized from implementing similar HPC configurations.

Secure Engineering Simulation Workflows in the Cloud

Increasingly, businesses are choosing cloud solutions instead of hosting their own computer hardware onsite. They also want to run applications in the cloud, not just use it for data storage. ANSYS now makes it easy for you to run engineering simulations in the cloud.

Learn how ANSYS leverages Amazon Web Services to provide secure engineering workflows in the cloud. We will provide an introduction to ANSYS Enterprise Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and best practices for security in the cloud. Get answers to your questions and concerns about keeping sensitive data in a public cloud infrastructure.

Focus on Faster Mechanical Simulation

No matter what type of product you create, simulation and analysis tools are critical in today's rapid product development process. However, in a recent survey done by Intel and ANSYS, 68% of respondents said they are forced to limit the size and detail of simulation models at least half the time due to run time constraints. In addition, simulation users are not taking advantage of the powerful hardware and software tools available today, which means compromising the quality and time it takes to create the best products.

Learn how a team from Dell, Intel and ANSYS put our latest hardware and software to the test and see what results users could achieve. What we found will surprise you and radically change your product development process. Discover the true power of the latest hardware and software products by joining us for this webinar.

Qorvo: Leader in RF Solutions Gives HPC Insight To Meet Computational Needs

Are your high-frequency electromagnetics models becoming increasingly large and complex while your available time to solve or address them is dwindling? This webinar will provide insight and persuasive real-world HFSS examples on how using high-performance computing (HPC) helps to overcome these challenges.

Special guest Troyce Severe, EDA Systems Engineer at Qorvo, will present how the combination of SGI® UV™ hardware solutions and HFSS helps them simulate a wide range of EM designs from single chips to complete module laminate assemblies. Severe also will address how his company has automated EM simulation of laminate design process corners, yielding reduction in both setup time from hours to minutes, and simulation time from a few days to a few hours.

Qorvo is a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defence applications. It was formed following the merger of RFMD and TriQuint, and has more than 6,000 global employees dedicated to delivering solutions for everything that connects the world.

SGI offers a solution that simplifies high performance computing for CAE. SGI has created an easy to deploy, unified hardware platform that addresses a broad spectrum of ANSYS applications and workloads including HFSS.
