From its TC Cloud family of cloud services
Fujitsu has introduced three services in Japan from its TC Cloud family of cloud services for analytical simulations: Analytical Platform Service Standard Class; Analytical Platform Service High-Performance Class; and Analytical Help Desk.
Analytical Platform Service Standard Class provides access to a computational environment for conducting analytical simulations, Analytical Platform Service High-Performance Class provides a high-performance computing environment connected to a high-speed network and Analytical Help Desk delivers deployment as well as operational support and training for running analytical simulations.
Analytical Platform Service Standard Class is intended for medium-scale parallel computations of up to 32 parallel computing tasks and the Analytical Platform Service Standard Class features include: operations and maintenance of hardware and middleware; portal screen (GUI) for managing the system’s operations; portal site that enables one-stop operations and a highly-reliable cloud environment that ensures business continuity.
In addition, the service is available with a minimum configuration of one node, which features 8 CPU cores (Intel Xeon 2~3GHz) of computing resources, for a period of at least one month and additional individual nodes can be added on a week-by-week basis.
The high-performance class is ideal for large-scale parallel computations and thiss service is offered on a customised basis to support the customer’s individual computational environment needs.
Fujitsu said Analytical Help Desk helps customers resolve problems related to analytical simulations.
With the new services, customers can access analysis application software packages sold by Fujitsu, including LS-DYNA; eta/DYNA FORM; Poynting; and SCIGRESS.
By leveraging the know-how, it has accumulated to date through the delivery of solutions in the area of analysis, Fujitsu is offering the following services, which include software-related troubleshooting support: hosted analysis service where Fujitsu’s analysis experts take care of the entire analysis process ; training service which provides deployment training ; deployment support service where Fujitsu will set up ISV software and other applications on the analytical platform; and operations support service which provides support for resolving problems that arise when utilizing analysis applications on the analysis platform.
ETA vice-president Arthur Tang said ETA is excited to be part of this opportunity to reach engineers and researchers who are using cloud computing to access advanced simulation software.
"The TC Cloud service is an efficient way for these users to access software such as eta/DYNAFORM," stated Arthur Tang.
