Framework: HPC


Sim4Life offers high performance computing to enable the investigation of complex and realistic models. Multi-threaded execution for modeling, meshing, voxeling, and postprocessing enables parallel processing of heavy tasks without disturbing the workflow. A fully integrated centralized task manager efficiently manages all computationally intensive tasks on the local machine or in the cloud. Two sets of CUDA-based libraries for graphics processing unit (GPU) acceleration are provided: Acceleware and ZMT CUDA.

Sim4Life features the fastest GPU-enabled EM-FDTD and US solvers (P-EM-FDTD & P-ACOUSTICS). The MPI parallelization-based FEM solver optimally uses multi-core processors, clusters, and supercomputers to guarantee extreme performance for demanding tasks. A unified interface supports cloud computing of any of the major providers (e.g., Amazon or Google).
