"This MSC.Software Simulation Appliance is the first optimized turnkey Linux CAE solution in the market," said Frank Perna, Chairman and CEO, MSC.Software Corporation. "Distributing large simulation tasks amongst many PC computers delivers major cost benefits against the other options available to our customers.
