Altair and Univa’s solutions optimize throughput and performance of applications, containers and services to help hundreds of companies manage thousands of applications and run billions of tasks every day to obtain actionable insights and achieve faster time to results.
“The Univa team is thrilled to join the Altair ecosystem and unleash the power of our technology,” says Fritz Ferstl, chief technology officer of Univa. “We believe HPC is emerging as a critical element of digital transformation as it plays a significant role in all areas of computational science and data analytics.”
Altair will continue to invest in Univa’s technology to support existing customers while integrating with Altair’s HPC and data analytics solutions. These efforts will further enhance the capability and performance requirements for all Altair customers and solidify the company’s leadership in workload management and cloud enablement for HPC.
