SimScale Boosts Open Source Codes with Contributions

Open source technology is an important part of the SimScale 3D engineering simulation platform, with open source codes such as OpenFOAM, CalculiX, Code_Aster and ParaViewWeb helping to power the solver, meshing and visualization of SimScale’s web-based CAE platform.

However, we are not just another user of open source codes, but an active contributor.

This week we gave new life to Webstor, a high performance library to access object storage systems, such as Amazon’s S3 or Google Cloud Storage.

Among other contributions, Cristian Klein, chief back-end and cloud architect at SimScale, implemented two new methods, “copy” and “copyPart”, that allow objects stored on the same cloud to be efficiently copied from one location to another, without having the data pass through the cloud user.

This contribution is part of SimScale’s ongoing effort to make its platform more scalable as our number of users is increasing rapidly.
