ESI Group to port open virtual try-out space on Microsoft 64-Bit Windows

ESI Group : 11 October, 2004  (New Product)
ESI Group demonstrated today the powerful capabilities of its Open Virtual Try-Out Space Solution, a proven engineering simulation environment, on Microsoft's new 64-bit Windows operating system. PAM-CRASH is the first crash simulation solution on the market to be ported to 64-bit Windows 64, before the future release of other major CAE software from ESI Group.
ESI Group demonstrated today the powerful capabilities of its Open Virtual Try-Out Space Solution, a proven engineering simulation environment, on Microsoft's new 64-bit Windows operating system. PAM-CRASH is the first crash simulation solution on the market to be ported to 64-bit Windows 64, before the future release of other major CAE software from ESI Group.

Microsoft's 64-bit operating system offers a cost-effective approach to running typical CAE applications, which usually require large memory resources, in excess of 2-Gbytes. The engineering community will benefit from the performance of Itanium Processor Family-based Windows 64-bit at a highly competitive price, compared to the well established UNIX 64-bit operating systems which run primarily on RISC processors.

As most CAD solutions offer good, industrially validated performances on a 32-bit environment, and high computing consuming applications such as CAE solutions mostly resort to a 64-bit environment, the new 64-bit systems running Windows XP professional x64 Edition allow, through a dual 32/64-bit offer, for mass market applications and continuous PLM engineering.

The Open VTOS prototype demonstration at EuroPAM includes several pre-ported product components such as PAM-CRASH solvers in SMP and DMP modes, as well as the new graphical framework for both Windows 64-bit Itanium Processor Family and 64-bit Extended Systems (Intel Xeon with Extended Memory 64-bit technology).

'ESI Group believes that Windows 64-bit will become one of the major operating systems for CAE applications as it delivers a highly competitive price/performance ratio within a consistent global simulation chain,' says Vincent Chaillou, President and COO, Product Operations, ESI Group.

'Whereas 64-bit systems will gain in importance in the coming years, Windows 64-bit now helps users leverage the operating system's new 64-bit processing and addressing capabilities while protecting our customers investments in 32-bit applications,' says Bernard Ourganlian, Chief Technical and Security Officer for Microsoft France. 'This is why we are pleased with the announcement of the availability of the Open VTOS prototype for 64-bit Windows environments.'

Microsoft plans to introduce Windows XP professional x64 Edition and Windows Server 2003 x64 during the first half of 2005. Both operating systems are currently available in beta versions.
