Weather & Climate

Weather and climate centers worldwide rely on the power of high-performance computing, and Altair keeps HPC running reliably and efficiently.

“Owing to the results of Altair's sophisticated simulations with AcuSolve running on PBS Professional, KMA can now run a green IT center in a more predictable and efficient way.”
—Su-hong Lee, Korea Meteorological Association

Weather & Climate Modeling

Modeling the Earth's weather and climate is a challenge. It requires high-performance computing resources and powerful software that can orchestrate the most complex workloads. Fields such as climate modeling and numerical weather forecasting have global economic and social impact.

Altair solutions for HPC workload orchestration, resource management, user access, analytics and more power major weather centers all over the world. Where time always is a critical factor, our Altair PBS Works™ solutions make sure weather and climate modeling and simulation workloads run as quickly and efficiently as possible, making the most of HPC resources.

Cylc and the Altair PBS Professional™ Weather Solution

Cylc is an open-source workflow engine for cycling systems that handles a range of workflow complexities. It automatically executes tasks according to detailed schedules and dependencies, and it’s especially useful in areas such as weather and climate modeling, numerical weather prediction, physics simulation, and data processing. Cylc has become a popular choice at major weather and climate centers around the world — and now it’s a key tool at Australia's Bureau of Meteorology.

Cylc was originally developed for operational environmental forecasting at NIWA, the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand, and now it’s an open-source collaboration between NIWA, the Met Office (UK), the Center of Excellence for Weather and Climate Simulation in Europe (ESiWACE), the Bureau of Meteorology, and other contributors.

Altair, NIWA, and the Bureau of Meteorology developed a production environment for monitoring the performance of many Cylc workflows along with Altair PBS Professional, our industry-leading workload manager and job scheduler for HPC and cloud environments.
