I/O Accelerator Boosts MSC Nastran Simulations

MSC Nastran is a widely used structural analysis application, especially for large modal analysis (i.e., eigenvalue) simulations. It requires a high-capability I/O system for good throughput performance. However, good I/O performance on a cluster architecture can be a challenge, since clusters are often configured to maximize compute scalability and have relatively weak I/O capability per node. Read the latest blog post discussing how Cray addressed the challenge by developing the DataWarp™ I/O acceleration capability, and how it works on very large MSC Nastran simulation projects.
