The newest release of Abaqus, version 6.8-EF, is focused on delivering technology to solve specific engineering challenges across all industries including automotive, aerospace, electronics, energy, packaged goods, and medical devices. It includes enhancements in computational performance that were developed and benchmarked on the largest compute cluster in use at SIMULIA—an HP 192 core XC3000 InfiniBand blade cluster.
Why does SIMULIA procure HP workstations, servers, and cluster systems for their engineers? Because HP offers the full choice of architectures, operating environments, and scalable systems matched to the needs of Abaqus—along with the quality, support, and affordability that has made HP the #1 computer systems vendor worldwide.
Our engineer assigned to Abaqus works with SIMULIA engineers to benchmark, optimize, and support Abaqus on our industry-standard systems. Our sales teams and CAE resellers leverage this knowledge to help customers configure the optimum computing solution for their application and job mix. We meet users at SIMULIA conferences to ensure customer satisfaction with HP systems. In summary, we are committed to our combination of HP hardware and Abaqus software providing the best return-on-investment to our joint CAE customers.
