Altair has recently invested in FluiDyna by acquiring shares of the German technology provider plus a member of the Altair Partner Alliance, and in doing so has achieved Elite Solution Provider status in the NVIDIA Partner Network program.
Altair says that the recognition distinguishes FluiDyna as one of NVIDIA’s top partners for accelerated computing and is the only one in Central Europe with this status.
FluiDyna has been a strategic partner with NVIDIA in the accelerated computing area since 2008. The company accelerates its own applications utilising the NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform and sells them as a complete solution. FluiDyna is working so far on 4 different GPU-accelerated codes and has presented them over the last past years at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) and other events.
FluiDyna provides a range of NVIDIA GPU accelerators that help customers speed up their work while also cutting costs.
“This recognition by NVIDIA proves that Altair has invested in the right company," said Dr. Pietro Cervellera, Country Manager Altair Germany and DACH region. "We congratulate FluidDyna for achieving the Elite Solution Provider Status in the NVIDIA Partner Network program. This will help customers to increase their work speed, reduce their overall costs and receive first hand access to NVIDIA's latest technologies."
“We are very proud about the Elite Solution Provider status,” said Dr. Thomas Indinger, CEO of FluiDyna. “Due to the close relationship with NVIDIA, we are able to provide our customers excellent conditions, including an extended support, services as well as profound information, for NVIDIA products. Moreover, we can inform our clients very early about new NVIDIA products and technologies.”
The Elite Solution Provider status gives FluiDyna access to the newest NVIDIA technologies. With our new status,” says Indinger, “we can offer our customers a high availability of products.”
Altair explain that the NVIDIA Elite Solution Provider Status in Accelerated Computing competency recognises partners who design, deploy, and support parallel computing, HPC (high performance computing), and other accelerated computing markets such as big data processing/analytics. It includes NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators, NVLink interconnect technology, the CUDA parallel computing platform, and PGI technologies. The designation is a result of annual revenue performance and successfully completing the NVIDIA Accelerated Computing training requirements.
