Have you been to the SIMULIA Community lately? If you want the best content, access to our verified SIMULIA experts, a forum to ask questions, and more, then this is the place for you! Our community is engaged and informed about the latest in simulation trends, as well as providing solutions to complex engineering problems. And if you want access to Best Practice documents like SIMULIA 3DOrchestrate Windows/Derby On Premises Installation all you need to do is join for free! 

This is a post in the series SIMULIA Community Best Practices featured on the blog. Come back for more posts about SIMULA Best Practices and other interesting simulation content.

Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, SIMULIA delivers realistic simulation applications that enable users to reveal the world we live in. SIMULIA applications accelerate the process of evaluating the performance, reliability, and safety of materials and products before committing to physical prototypes.

Application engineering, Multiphysics simulation, and Simulation data science are disciplines of the SIMULIA product portfolio. Physics Simulation, Simulation Automation and Optimization are broad classification of the SIMULIA portfolio offerings. Physics Simulation applications are based on the native client. Whereas, the Simulation Automation and Optimization applications are based on both the web client and native client. The Simulation Automation and Optimization apps helps user to conduct optimization and design exploration with advanced analytics and visualization.

With the Automation and Optimization apps, users can:

  • Create and execute processes that automate simulations and optimize designs.
  • Select the best design among competing objectives with trade-off and collaborative decision support.

3DOrchestrate is part of the simulation workflow infrastructure of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. 3DOrchestrate allows users to distribute and parallelize the execution of simulation process jobs across available computer resources and to share the results. This is a Java enterprise application that can be installed on a server machine that is separate from the 3DSpace MCS (Main Collaboration Server).

SIMULIA 3DOrchestrate has the functionality of integrating with HPC and LSF cluster. It can harness the computing capacity for solving complex simulation models and helps in decision making.

This Best Practice document focuses on installation and configuration of SIMULIA 3DOrchestrate application using Derby DBMS included in the 3DOrchestrate package for effectively using the SIMULIA portfolio offerings.

Target audience: Site IT, Software Architects, Administrators, End Users, Tech Support members, and Consultants.

In this best practice, you will learn about:

  • Pre-requisite for 3DOrchestration service
  • Installation of 3DOrchestration service
  • Deploying and starting 3DOrchestration server
  • Installation of SIMULIA execution services and SIMULIA Process Apps
  • 3DOrchestration server connection configuration
