JARVICE is purpose-built for high-performance computing (HPC) applications and is a supercomputing architecture adapted for self-service and elasticity rather than a commodity web services platform not capable of running true HPC workloads.
The Nimbix Cloud, powered by JARVICE, is specifically designed for organisations that need more control over their physical big data and HPC application platforms, without compromising performance or ease-of-use.
In addition, Nimbix’s user-friendly API enables DNV GL to use ANSYS® Fluent® software integration and creates tailored workflows with minimal effort and accelerated workload processing.
Mustafa Kara, engineer, Deepwater Technology at DNV GL, said, “You don’t need to exacerbate the difficult process with slow performing cloud services. Using JARVICE, we found the powerful, HPC cloud is well-designed for the volume and data processing speeds we need while enabling us to meet deadlines and budget requirements.”
Nimbix chief technology officer Leo Reiter added that facilitating complex simulations in the cloud enables customers to solve large scale problems faster and easier than ever before. “We are proud that JARVICE and the Nimbix Cloud are associated with deep water technology and commend DNV GL for their forward thinking in leveraging cloud-based HPC services to achieve results,” he noted.
