HPCBOX is a desktop centric, workflow oriented HPC cloud platform built and delivered on Microsoft Azure. HPCBOX provides intelligent workflow capability that lets seamless plug-in of cloud infrastructure into your application pipeline giving fine grained control on your HPC cloud resources and applications. The platform combines cloud infrastructure, applications and managed services to bring supercomputer technology to your personal computer.
OpenFOAM is free, open source software for CFD from the OpenFOAM Foundation.
HPCBOX cluster for OpenFOAM has both v5 and v6 of OpenFOAM pre-installed and integrated to run in distributed parallel mode over a high speed Infiniband fabric on Microsoft Azure. Users can create and execute their simulation workflows with the rich desktop experience provided by HPCBOX, the same way they would do on their personal computers. Some of the unique capabilities offered by HPCBOX are:
Fine-grained control over HPC resources
HPCBOX provides real elasticity to HPC environments on the cloud, resources can be added, removed, shutdown and started on-demand or as part of the simulation pipeline.
Visualization is an important aspect of simulation engineering. HPCBOX delivers hardware accelerated remote 3D, allowing users to perform their post processing activities directly on the HPC cluster in the cloud. This is made possible with the use of Azure’s NVIDIA equipped GPU nodes for visualization and HPCBOX’s hardware accelerated remote graphics capability.
All access to the cluster, including file transfers is over a secure channel giving users the best possible industry standard protection for their HPC activities.
Rich Desktop Experience
HPCBOX delivers a rich desktop experience avoiding the use of complicated web forms and command line tools for simulation management and execution. This lets users maximize their use of HPC resources and gives them much more freedom in how they work with simulation engineering and virtual prototyping.
