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 solutions can help automotive companies transform the design chain to develop designs better, faster and cheaper.
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 IT infrastructure to support that process – to transform research and ideas into reality—in a fast, efficient and cohesive manner.
Platform Computing solutions include products for workload and process management, HPC application integration, job submission and management, license scheduling, analytics and visualization, and MPI implementation. A range of products from the family of Platform Computing solutions are ideal for application in every aspect of the automotive industry, including structural mechanics, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, explicit dynamics, multiphysics, computer aided design, and a variety of home-grown applications.
Platform Computing solutions are fast and easy to deploy, with simple HPC cluster setup and management, and pre-integration of ISV applications with Platform software, accelerating engineering simulations while providing users with transparent access to distributed computing resources.
Platform Computing solutions help create dynamic, flexible clusters and HPC cloud environments to help you achieve a range of benefits:
- Increased infrastructure utilization with pools of shared resource
- Higher application service levels and throughput
- Reduced costs using heterogeneous, shared infrastructure.
- Improved collaboration
- Simple setup and deployment to decrease time and cost of IT administration
For the most complex problems you face, Platform software enables rapid modeling and analysis under a variety of leads with extremely large data sets.
Red Bull Technology
Though Red Bull Technology had made hefty investments in IT, the compute resources were operating below its full potential. Platform LSF intelligently scheduled workload and dynamically allocated resources which helped increase performance and throughput by more than 20 percent. Read the story (PDF, 957KB)
Swift Engineering wanted a solution where they spent more time solving complex problems than administering the system. Cray’s CX 1000 combined with Platform HPC allowed Swift to solve bigger problems with more enhanced graphics with real time speed. Read the story (PDF, 2.54MB)
