Win the race with High Performance Clusters and Cloud
In today’s fast paced, design anywhere, build anywhere environment automotive companies need speed, agility, control and visibility across the design ecosystem and life cycle to meet time-to-market requirements and maximize profitability. IBM Platform Computing high performance cluster, grid and HPC cloud solutions can help automotive companies transform the design chain to develop designs better, faster and cheaper.
Maximize Efficiency & Eliminate Waste
Many of the increases in fuel efficiency in today’s automobiles are directly tied to innovative ways of integrating electronically controlled engines, brakes, batteries and more to maximize efficiency and eliminate waste. These interconnected systems need to operate effectively in harmony with safety systems, diagnostics, and the drivers themselves. You need a streamlined process – and the high performance IT infrastructure to support that process – to transform research and ideas into reality—in a fast, efficient and cohesive manner. At the same time, many firms lack the resources to create, monitor, and administer such an HPC environment.
Enable your HPC infrastructure to Accelerate Compute-intensive Applications
Platform Computing cluster, grid and HPC cloud management software solutions are designed to enable the high performance infrastructure needed to accelerate compute-intensive applications used in the automotive industry, including structural mechanics, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, explicit dynamics, multi-physics, computer aided design, and home-grown applications.
Platform Computing solutions include workload and process management, HPC application integration, job submission and management, license scheduling, analytics and visualization, and MPI implementation. They are easy to deploy, with simple HPC cluster setup and management, and pre-integration of leading ISV applications including ANSYS and SIMULIA, to accelerate engineering simulations while providing users with transparent access to distributed computing resources.
To further lower the risk, cost, and time of putting together these solutions, IBM Platform Computing is working with leading ISVs to create industry-specific workload-optimized platforms. These application ready platforms are based on proven reference architectures. IBM Application Ready Solutions are available for leading ISV applications on IBM Platform Computing, IBM System x, IBM Flex System™ x86 and Power reference architecture. New offerings include:
