Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of technology and services that strengthen client innovation and decision-making, today announced the company has now ported solver solutions to Sun’s Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS) on x86 systems. The ported versions of RADIOSS, OptiStruct and MotionSolve are scheduled to be available by the end of this year.
“This agreement affirms our long-term relationship with Sun and our desire to work with them to give our customers powerful CAE solution choices,” said Michael Humphrey, Altair vice president of partner programs. “We’re also very pleased that Sun is a global Gold Sponsor for our HyperWorks Technology Conference (HTC) series this year, which will be held at locations around the world from July to November.”

Altair has also received hardware and technical support from Sun. Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
