Atipa Technologies, Intel, and Northern Illinois University Train Next Generation Of Visualization Experts

Lawrence, Kan., January 13, 2020 – Researchers at Northern Illinois University (NIU) seek new ways to visualize complex data involved with astrophysics, bio-sciences, and much more. With support from Atipa Technologies and Intel® Select Solutions for Simulation & Visualization, the NIU team has the compute power needed to resolve large-scale simulations, including virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) scenarios. A central feature of NIU’s visualization solution is a 16-foot by 8-foot display that allows scientists to see content at a level of detail not possible before. The unique display solution’s user-tracking interface also lets scientists interact with it physically rather than using a keyboard or mouse. As a result, both scientists and non-scientists can tap the system’s full potential.

“Atipa and Intel’s infrastructure makes it possible to train the next generation of visualization experts with advanced tools and software infrastructure they will encounter in most advanced industry settings.”

— Michael E. Papka, NIU professor of computer science

Atipa Technologies, Intel, and Northern Illinois University Train Next Generation Of Visualization Experts

Lawrence, Kan., May 6, 2019 – Atipa Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance computing and storage solutions, has announced the deployment of its Polaris High Performance Computing and Visualization (HPCV) platform at Northern Illinois University. The platform is a turnkey Intel Select Solution for Professional Visualization, enabling cost effective and performance verified scientific simulation and visualization.

The Polaris Select HPCV platform leverages the Intel Rendering Framework with optimized ray-tracing algorithms to use the Intel Xeon Scalable Processors already present in the server, avoiding add-in graphics processors for high-fidelity rendering and visualization. The framework uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) to extend the scalability of visualization workloads beyond a single node, enabling the use of the aggregated memory of all cluster nodes to visualize data sets of hundreds of gigabytes to terabytes.

Atipa Technologies Refreshes Polaris Select High-Performance Computing and Visualization Platform with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

Lawrence, KS – April 2, 2019 – Atipa Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance computing and storage solutions, today announced the refresh of its Polaris Select High Performance Computing and Visualization (HPCV) platform, which includes Simulation and Modeling and Professional Visualization, using 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. The platform supplements all the benefits of a high-performance computing cluster with the Intel® Rendering Framework for software-defined visualization to enable CPU-based rendering and visualization scalable across an entire cluster of nodes without any special purpose graphics hardware.

Atipa’s Polaris Select HPCV clusters, which include Intel® Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling and Professional Visualization, offer customers the benefit of the latest Intel technologies and verified performance so they can design the right system for simulation and visualization. These systems provide the capabilities and agility needed to support a range of different simulation and visualization workloads and eliminate the need for multiple single-purpose systems. In addition, the performance of key system characteristics is verified for Intel® Select Solutions at both the node and cluster level.
