PLEXOS® Connect enhances PLEXOS by offering distributed computing across local and cloud resources, automated batch runs, 'real time' operations, and a central repository for simulation results.
PLEXOS® Connect is the distributed, client-server system to complement the PLEXOS simulation tool.
The product enables users to:
- Distribute simulations for parallel execution over multiple client computers or to the cloud
- Remotely manage distributed simulation jobs
- Centrally maintain multiple input data versions and simulation engine versions
- Easily share, compare and review simulation results
PLEXOS® Connect allows you to control which local network computers or cloud services jobs run on, the version of input data used, and even the version of the simulation engine. This allows you to keep a complete history of inputs, simulation engines and solutions.
There are three main components in PLEXOS® Connect:
PLEXOS® Connect Server
The server is the centralised data-storage manager. It resides in the core of the network system and controls the data security, network configuration, permission hierarchy and simulation engine version control.
PLEXOS® Connect Client
Clients query the server for inputs to perform simulations. All PLEXOS execution jobs queued on the server are dispatched to these computers for execution. On completion, the results are sent back to the server for storage and retrieval.
PLEXOS® Connect Launch Control
Launch Control is the interface used to configure executions, retrieve/upload datasets and solutions, modify network configuration, administrate permissions and more. It can be used from a remote computer, client computer or within the server itself.
