CIQ announced at Oracle CloudWorld that it has made a comprehensive software stack for high-performance computation of shapes available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace. This application package—a bundle of OpenRadioss (the open source version of Altair Radioss) and ParaView (an open source visualization application) on Rocky Linux 9.1—helps enterprises simulate and visualize complex, non-linear problems on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
CIQ is the company building the next generation of software infrastructure for enterprises running data-intensive workloads atop the Rocky Linux enterprise Linux distribution. CIQ also is a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).
Using Apptainer, CIQ has already successfully containerized separate builds of OpenRadioss and ParaView for post-processing purposes. Building on these achievements, CIQ is now packaging OpenRadioss and ParaView together within a Rocky Linux 9 image and making it available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace. This package not only includes the software itself, but also incorporates a selection of sample workloads sourced from the OpenRadioss community site, enabling users to easily access and use these resources within the Rocky Linux environment.
“By creating this package and making it available in Oracle Cloud, we have provided a quick path to get started in the OpenRadioss community,” said Arthur Tyde, III, senior vice president of global business development at CIQ. “This allows interested people to execute some of the sample OpenRadioss workloads or bring their own workloads. The idea is to get more users running and providing their feedback in the OpenRadioss forums, which will help drive the code and ultimately expand simulation use. Additionally, CIQ’s participation in Oracle Cloud Marketplace further extends our commitment to the Oracle community.”
