Flow Science Recipient of Intel’sVoyager Award at SC 11
Flow Science, a leader in CFD software development, was a recenthonoree of the Intel® Cluster Ready Voyager Award, part of the Intel ClusterReady Partner Appreciation Awards at SC 11. The Voyager Awards recognize thoseorganizations that have contributed to Intel Cluster Ready advancement, totalavailable market growth and helped penetrate the much sought after but elusive“missing middle” for customers moving to cluster-based solutions.
“The 2011 IntelCluster Ready Partner Appreciation Awards acknowledge those partners taking HPC higher and leading the Intel®Cluster Ready Program into new territories. These awards acknowledge IntelFellow Travelers who’ve taken on the exciting adventure of exploring new technologies and moving the industry forward and…upward,” said KathleenEllertson, the Global Marketing Manager for Intel Cluster Ready.
Flow Science has also partnered with Silicon Mechanics to develop a Cluster Solutions Guide that will provide clustersolutions to customers. Currently, Flow Science is working with Silicon Mechanics to deliver clusters based on the future Intel® Xeon® processor E5family.
“The historically complex hardware and software choices availablein cluster configurations present a significant challenge to customers hopingto move to our cluster-enabled FLOW-3D/MP solver. Customers buyingclusters are accustomed to and expect the relatively simple process associatedwith buying workstation hardware and software. The Intel ClusterReady Program has simplified the clusterhardware and software selection process to ensure that FLOW-3D/MP, which is Intel Cluster Ready-registered, will work out of the box with Intel Cluster Ready-certifiedhardware. Our partnership with Silicon Mechanics further simplifies this processby providing our customers with a one-stop shopping experience,” commented JohnDitter, Flow Science’s VP of Software Engineering.
Flow Science uses many Intel SSG products to continuously improve the accuracy and performance of their general-purpose CFD software, FLOW-3D, which comes in three HPC versions -OpenMP, MPI and the recently-released hybrid MPI-OpenMP. Using thehybrid approach to parallelization, a speed-up of up to 60 times over the serial version of FLOW-3D has been achieved with the latest release of FLOW-3D/MP.
