Intel Select Solutions - Simulation & Modeling with Advantech SKY-5240



Simulation & Modeling can be the key element of success for manufacturing and research companies facing an increasingly competitive environment. Numerous Simulation & Modeling applications provide capabilities to explore design parameters, reduce prototype costs, produce optimized products in shorter amounts of time to market, and provide more innovative server to customer. In addition, many of these applications are capable of distributing computation across multiple machines that are configured to act as one large unit: a high performance computing (HPC) cluster. An HPC cluster can provide a scalable resource that enables faster results, finer grained models, and ultimately, higher productivity, compared to using a single system for simulation workloads.

But for many organizations, the skills or expertise to deploy and maintain scalable HPC clusters for Simulation & Modeling workloads present a barrier to adoption. Building an HPC cluster involves more than choosing the right processor, core count, and memory. Storage, remote-visualization, job scheduling, and workload management software all need to be considered. In addition, integrating the hardware and software to meet the requirements for Simulation & Modeling applications is highly complex. In the end, businesses can spend weeks or more researching and assembling the components needed for their solutions.

Advantech, the leading provide for industrial intelligent system, has provide its expertise in reliable and high performance server grade-IPC for over 30 years. Now Advantech has chosen to partner up with Intel and together, SKY-5240 is verified as Intel® Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling. This enables users of the systems to benefit from experience in Simulation & Modeling markets with workload-optimized performance from 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

The Advantech system with Advantech SKY-5240 is verified as an Intel Select Solution for Simulation & Modeling, offering end users and developers faster access to optimized and stable platform configurations to accelerate use and development of high performance computing solutions.   Ready to ship as pre-configured platforms and also available for benchmarking in Advantech’s Remote Evaluation Service labs, interested users can utilize these platforms to conduct testing and modeling of solutions that will define next-generation compute, Simulation & Modeling capabilities.
