HPC-SA Licenses the Reprise License Manager (RLM)

Summary: “After we professed for years that users should adopt our ray-tracing software because it is our specialty and it was better to rely on our proven tools, we discovered that licensing is exactly the same: instead of trying to do it ourselves, wasting time and money, it would have been better if we have gone directly to the specialists to adopt a field-proven off-the-shelf solution like RLM.”

About HPC-SA:

HPC-SA and RLM licensing

The main activity of HPC-SA is high performance ray-tracing in 3D environments. HPC-SA  also develops ready to use high performance propagation software (multi-physics thermics-lighting-solar green building software, Monte-Carlo based radiative simulation software, etc.). Also HPC-SA can provide ISVs with high performance ray-tracing modules including diffraction, radiosity, occlusion and visibility.

Among others, HPC-SA has developed the radiosity engine used in the Artlantis renderer and the propagation module used in the ErgoSpace satellite software. Thanks to the HPC-SA’s ray-tracing technology, both Artlantis and ErgoSpace are amazingly fast and accurate.

Last but not least, HPC-SA’s core technology, a ray-tracing acceleration library named RayBooster, is available to drastically speed-up almost any software using ray-tracing. RayBooster has been successfully used in scientific wave propagation software within top laboratories (ONERA, Ecole Centrale de Paris), and is the heart of the other ray-tracing software from HPC-SA.

In the beginning, we wrote our protection mechanisms ourselves, just checking for the host identity. This was barely effective in basic environments, leading to additional work and errors, but was not effective at all in complex environments, like clusters.

Why reinvent the wheel?
After we professed for years that users should adopt our ray-tracing software because it is our specialty and it was better to rely on our proven tools, we discovered that licensing is exactly the same: instead of trying to do it ourselves, wasting time and money, it would have been better if we have gone directly to the specialists to adopt a field-proven off-the-shelf solution like RLM.

With this in mind, we can recommend RLM, as it offers all the needed features for a very fair price. Not only is RLM effective, but the Reprise Software support is effective too.
