PBS Pro Grid Technology Accelerates Crash Analysis



TROY, Mich., March 29, 2004 - With the formal endorsement by Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC) of Altair Engineering’s PBS ProTM workload management and e-Compute Grid Portal software, Altair Engineering continues its rapid rise in the Grid computing market space.



"LSTC’s endorsement underscores the sweeping adoption of PBS Pro and e-Compute in the manufacturing sector," said James R. Scapa, Chief Executive Officer of Altair Engineering. "Robust design initiatives are driving the need for more compute cycles for numerically intensive applications like LS-DYNA. PBS Pro cost-effectively manages this additional workload across enterprise computing infrastructures, while the e-Compute Grid Portal provides a consistent user interface which is tightly integrated with solver applications."



"LSTC has installed Altair’s PBS Pro and e-Compute software internally and integrated this software with our LS-DYNA solver technology," said John Hallquist, President of LSTC. "The combination of LS-DYNA with PBS Pro and e-Compute allows LSTC to better utilize our compute infrastructure while also increasing the productivity of our development team."
