... a more than 7 TB of an HPC simulation of a dwarf galaxy. With Cholla, the GPU accelerated simulation library, and NVIDIA IndeX, they've discovered how the supernova explosions in the disk of the galaxy couple their energy to the dense gas in the disk of the galaxy, thereby heating it and driving the gas into the dense outflow. Without the visualization capabilities of Index, they couldn't understand the 3D structure of the gas where the explosions interact with the disk. Now they can identify where the action is happening, manipulate the terabytes dataset in real-time, and then animate the results to see how the system evolves. NVIDIA IndeX has been a revolutionary technology for them to run bigger and better simulations.

... e.g., illustrating the gas mixing out of a methane/oxygen coaxial rocket injector. The flow comprises a core jet of oxygen gas with a ring of methane gas around it. The simulation is based on the following: A Numerical Study of High-Pressure Oxygen/Methane Mixing and Combustion of a Shear Coaxial Injector, Nan Zong & Vigor Yang, AIAA 2005 and the simulation ran on 128 GPU nodes on Titan Supercomputer. The visualization is based on 7.5TB volume dataset running on a GPU cluster (SaturnV predecessor) using NVIDIA IndeX 2016.



IndeX plug-in for ParaView

NVIDIA has partnered with Kitware to bring NVIDIA IndeX to ParaView. Data sets for computational scientists continue to grow from terabytes to petabytes. The IndeX plug-in for ParaView was developed to aid in the analysis and 3D visualizations of extremely large datasets.


NVIDIA GPUs are ideal for simulating large seismic data and ParaView’s comprehensive GUI simplifies multi-platform data analysis and visualization. The HPC community can now visualize high-quality renderings and interactive performance with native visualization functionality such as streamlines, vector plots, etc.

Plug-in Highlights
  • ParaView plug-in to fully utilize native visualization functionality such as as vector plots, isosurfaces, volume rendering, streamlines, etc.
  • GPU accelerated rendering of high-quality and interactive visualizations
  • Support for typical grid types, such as structured uniform grids and sparse volumes.


IndeX plug-in for ParaView visualizing database (7+TB) of simulated time-steps of a Galactic Wind.
