Altair to offer HPC Cloud solutions on Oracle Cloud Platform

19 Jan 2017 Troy - Altair has signed a business collaboration with Oracle to build and offer High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions on the Oracle Cloud Platform. This follows Oracle's decision to name Altair's PBS Works as its preferred workload management solution for Oracle Cloud customers.

Altair PBS Works running on the Oracle Cloud Platform offers independent software vendors (ISVs) faster time to market on a proven HPC platform to address markets such as Oil & Gas, Insurance Information Processing and the internet of things (IoT). The Altair HPC advantage is the ability to quickly jumpstart an ISV interested in HPC with short time-to-market for their solutions on a proven platform.

"The Oracle Cloud Platform provides superior performance in terms of price, predictability, and throughput, with a low cost pay-as-you-go Cloud model", stated Sam Mahalingam, Chief Technical Officer, Altair. "We are delighted to partner with Oracle to provide High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions with Altair's PBS Works for the Oracle Cloud."

Altair has served the HPC market for over a decade with award-winning workload management, engineering, and cloud computing software. Used by thousands of companies worldwide, PBS Works enables engineers in HPC environments to improve productivity, optimize resource utilization and efficiency, and simplify the process of workload management.

"Altair is a longtime leader in HPC and Cloud solutions", stated Deepak Patil, Vice President of Product Management, Oracle Cloud Platform. "Their unique combination of HPC and engineering expertise makes PBS Works Oracle’s preferred workload management suite for High Performance Computing on the Oracle Cloud."

The Oracle Platform promises to offer HPC users superior performance in terms of price, predictability, and throughput.

As part of the collaboration, Altair will work closely with Oracle to develop turnkey solutions allowing users to access Cloud HPC resources in the Oracle Cloud Platform from any web-enabled device. These solutions will leverage Altair's industry leading PBS Works job scheduling solution on the Oracle Cloud to enable intuitive web portal access and secure workload management for rapid, scalable access to Oracle Cloud Platform HPC resources.

Initial solutions will target life sciences, energy, and academia increasing HPC demand to run compute-intensive workloads including DNA sequencing, advanced simulations, and big data analytics to test new concepts or products in virtual space.
