Introducing VisIt Prime - Ultrascale VisIt processing and visualization for real world engineering

VisIt is the premier visualization tool for ultrascale systems.  Developed by the US Department of Energy, VisIt is built from its inception to run on systems with hundreds of thousands of cores.  Intelligent Light has been working to harden VisIt and overcome the limitations for production engineering use.  Throughout this development we have continuously contributed to the source tree and played an important role in the established VisIt community. VisIt Prime gives users a robust, reliable and fully supported software release backed by Intelligent Light’s first class global support team.  

Why VisIt Prime?

  • No license cost penalty for scalability
  • Fully supported by Intelligent Light
  • In situ with VisIt and Libsim
  • Opportunity for custom engineered scalable workflows and development

"VisIt’s big-data capacity will let FieldView handle a wider range of CFD visualization tasks. But 'if you want to turn it into a commercial product, you really have to spend the time to customize things to people’s workflows,' Eric Brugger, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Scientist said. 'We’ve customized it to our workflows in the DOE community, but it doesn’t always fit other users." - DOE Visualizing Success Case Study.
