Introducing HPC FieldView - Ultrascale CFD processing and visualization for engineering.

Business and engineering leaders are eager to utilize High Performance Computing (HPC) to perform better engineering faster while reducing design risk. Running CFD simulations with hundreds of thousands of HPC compute cores generates detailed solutions quickly. These solutions must be processed and interrogated to deliver useful information and this process must keep up with the HPC pace. HPC FieldView gives you the ability to harness ultrascale HPC to process solutions, deliver timely answers and create the agility to work with and share the datasets.

HPC FieldView brings the usability and reliability of FieldView together with the ultrascale capability of VisIt. Scale to hundreds of thousands of cores without changing your user interface, software licenses or investment. Whether you use the FieldView parallel server or the ultrascalable VisIt engine, the FieldView user interface is the same!

VisIt is ultrascale visualization software developed by the US Department of Energy. The VisIt engine in HPC FieldView is a hardened, fully supported version of VisIt with new CFD capability and FieldView integration.
