Altair Engineering has introduced Display Manager, a new portal designed to enable the remote visualisation of extremely large models developed from ‘big data’ resources.

The portal enables the user to run graphics-intensive applications on a cluster while visualising those applications on a desktop.

Since applications run directly from the data centre, the user can take advantage of shared, powerful, GPU-enabled hardware in the data centre and use his or her web browser to view, edit, interact with and control the graphical apps remotely.

Display Manager enables the sharing of high-performance computing (HPC) systems housed in the data centre (or in an HPC cluster) among all the engineers in a company.

Key features and benefits

  • As Display Manager shows graphical applications directly from the cluster via a browser, ‘big data’ files remain on the cluster, with no copying required, ensuring faster, easier and more efficient operation.
  • Data security is increased since proprietary data remains inside the data centre at all times.
  • Multiple users can collaborate directly from within Display Manager by simply sharing sessions; authorised users can view and control a single session without downloading any files.
  • The virtual-team productivity feature can reduce the costs associated with expensive face-to-face meetings and eliminate the need for multiple users in different sites to download ‘big data’ files.
  • Display Manager can adjust fidelity to match network bandwidth and latency, continuously providing real-time responsiveness, whether operating on a local-area network or a wide-area network.
  • The portal’s open architecture is compatible with the user’s existing Altair or third-party applications; no additional application investments are required and no modifications are necessary.
  • Display Manager can be used as a standalone technology or can be integrated with Compute Manager in an easy-to-use fashion for businesses with large HPC clusters.
