Unmatched Price Performance Gains using Distributed Computing, ANSYS Solutions, and HP-MPI
Distributed ANSYS with HP’s HP-MPI increases price/performance benefits to the CAE customer. Clustering or distributed technology is not new, but improvements in interconnects along with message passing technology, have made clusters a viable price/performance alternative to large SMP machines. Developments in ANSYS, which involve the use of HP-MPI in their distributed product, are taking advantage of this paradigm. This document will explore the history of distributed ANSYS, the history of message passing technology, and investigate the advancing power of computing with HP innovation, choice, and performance. It will then show the evolving price and performance gains and benefits for the ANSYS user over the last few years.
