Electronic Design Automation

Managing server farms for electronic design automation (EDA) organizations is a challenge due to numerous factors: the pressure to improve efficiency and time to results, the highly heterogeneous environment where specific resources must be guaranteed for certain tasks, and the constant resource contention issue where multiple users compete for capacity.

Server farm administrators need workload management software that integrates with their critical EDA applications to intelligently manage massive workload volume. And they need this software from a vendor they can rely on for support and longevity.

“Altair PBS Professional is a first-rate solution for workload management in EDA. Altair did a great job implementing an efficient HPC solution with our customer."
