Advanced Visual Systems Partners With Microsoft to Improve High Performance Data Visualization
Parallel Processing and Multipipe Editions of AVS/Express Will Soon Support Windows HPC Server 2008R2
Advanced Visual Systems, a market leader in data visualization software and solutions for business, engineering and research organizations, will soon debut ultra-high performance editions of its popular AVS/Express software. The company is collaborating with Microsoft to leverage the Windows HPC Server platform and significantly improve data visualization processing, application performance, and ease of configuration using Microsoft’s provisioning interfaces.
Initial test results have shown that computationally sophisticated processes running on AVS/Express can now be run on the Windows HPC Server platform. This represents a great benefit compared to the more difficult Linux based installations without compromising speed and performance.
“Microsoft has been working closely with AVS to help them deliver high value data visualization-based solutions to the supercomputing marketplace, where speed and performance are essential requirements,” said Bill Hamilton, director, Technical Computing at Microsoft. “Companies like AVS are unleashing supercomputing power to scientists, researchers and engineers through innovative parallel processing and graphics rendering techniques on Windows that were once reserved for an elite class of hardware devices.”
According to Anoop Chatterjee, CTO of Advanced Visual Systems, “AVS is pleased to build on our relationship with Microsoft and take advantage of the Windows HPC Server platform to ensure that AVS software can easily manage the large data volumes that define the supercomputing space. AVS/Express has a long history of serving the scientific and academic community and our newest initiative with Microsoft will extend our commitment to delivering fast, versatile and cost-effective data visualization solutions.”
AVS/Express enables rapid, object-oriented development of rich and highly interactive scientific and technical data visualizations. Now in its sixteenth year of release and worldwide deployment at leading research facilities, universities and engineering organizations, AVS/Express is considered one of most prolific data visualization software tools and is offered in several editions that exploit nearly every contemporary and legacy data format.
