A business collaboration has been announced between Altair and 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 and Gas, Insurance Information Processing and 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.
Sam Mahalingam, Chief Technical Officer, Altair said: "The Oracle Cloud Platform provides superior performance in terms of price, predictability, and throughput, with a low cost pay-as-you-go cloud model.”
Mahalingam added: "We are delighted to partner with Oracle to provide High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions with Altair's PBS Works for the Oracle Cloud.”
“Altair is a longtime leader in HPC and cloud solutions,” said 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.
