PBS Works™, Altair's suite of HPC workload management and cloud enablement products, allows enterprises to maximize ROI on existing hardware and software resources.

  • Compute Manager, Altair’s web-based portal for simplified job submission and management.

  • Display Manager, Altair’s web-based portal for remote visualization portal. Display Manager provides users the ability to remotely visualize and interact with their data and applications, even across challenging data latency networks. With Display Manager, users have a simple, but powerful Web-based interface for visualizing large datasets, with no client installation and no data movement.
  • PBS Analytics, Altair’s easy to use job accounting and reporting solution that provides PBS Works administrators with advanced analytics to support data-driven planning and decision making.
