With 10 terabytes of data produced on a daily basis, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team needed high-performance computing (HPC) to manage intensive workloads. Altair Grid Engine allows them to efficiently sequence and coordinate the tens of thousands of simulations and other HPC tasks generated. Altair thus enables 97 percent utilization of HPC infrastructure and permits to gain strategic and performance advantages within Formula One’s 25 teraflop limits by achieving higher throughput.
Simulations can be performed on wind tunnels, vehicle aerodynamics or tire performance and to refine critical design elements. HPC also allows full vehicle simulations to be run so that drivers can understand how design changes will affect the performance of their car on race day.
