PernixData speeds new Tecplot RS compile and test cycle

New Tecplot RS release developed with help from PernixData’s server-side caching technology.

Tecplot has just released a new version of its oil and gas reservoir simulation post processor, data visualization and analysis tool. The 2013 R2 release brings improvements for loading, viewing, and exporting files and plots, including automating some functions while reducing the ‘number of clicks.’ To develop its latest release, Tecplot used some novel data access technology from PernixData to speed the compile and test process. Tecplot uses an automated code compiling infrastructure to support its development team. Usually compiling is a CPU bound process, but when last year Tecplot upgraded its virtualized build systems, the bottleneck shifted to its storage infrastructure.

Enter PernixData FVP, a host based, server side caching solution that provides both read and ‘true’ write-back caching. FVP is tightly coupled with the vSphere hypervisor, adding a pool of high availability cache transparently. Tecplot RS 2013 R2 supports Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP (32- and 64-bit), and Linux (64-bit) platforms. US pricing starts at $6,600 for a single-user license. More from TecplotRS
