About the HPC plug-in 

The the Petro module manages complex flow propagations for large industrial systems and the the Petri module is used to search for rare events for safety reasons, so users can perform millions (or even billions) of simulations in cases where calculation time is a key factor.

This advanced technology was initially developed by TotalEnergies for its HPC Pangea II. Today, the HPC plug-in is available on the market for all economic and industrial players looking for ultra-fast, high-performance calculation engines for their reliability studies.

Benefits of the HPC plug-in

The HPC plug-in breaks down the histories/simulations of each operation into smaller calculations performed in parallel remotely via the cloud.

It features three calculation functions:

  • Remote computing on a Linux server (50-200 cores) on your premises or via the cloud.
  • HPC computing on your supercomputer using an LSF or PBS scheduler (unlimited number of servers).
  • HPC computing using Microsoft Azure (up to 1,000 cores).


Linux versions are available for Debian/Ubuntu and RedHat/CentOS. The plug-in can be specifically tailored to your supercomputer. Please contact us if you would like to rent a server configured for HPC computing in the Cloud. We provide either a specialist Linux server for remote computing or a HPC service per minute of computation.

Licensing of several HPC plug-ins

The HPC plug-in requires a specific license that loads when you open the Petri or Petro module. If several users want to use the HPC plug-in at the same time, you will need several licenses.
