Dear Staff at Optiwave,

This is Chuan Zhong from Seagate Technology, I am searching for a simulation tool to do optical waveguide design simulations. just wonder could you give me a brief introduction of how does OptiFDTD support the parallel computing? do I need multiple licences to run jobs in clusters if my simulation had been distributed in a few hosts, thank you so much.

Best wishes
Chuan

      Hello Chuan,

      Our cluster support is through the MPI platform within the Linux environment. You have a license for the windows version of the product where you do your design work and then export the simulation design for the Linux simulation (an add-on to your license) which then drives the cluster calculations.

      If you would reach out to support@optiwave.com we can take a look at your specific requirements and see what solution best fits your needs.
