EURO/CFD: HPC Cluster Extends to 720 Processors
May 2011. EURO/CFD, engineering firm specializing in numerical simulation, now possesses a power of calculation of 6.2 TeraFlops and 7.8 TeraFlops in peak. This investment allows EURO/CFD to be the leader of French SME’s.
Industry needs grow fast: rapid evolution of techniques and the need for reliable CFD studies force companies to adapt constantly. Deliver products with the shortest deadline possible impacts the whole network, from suppliers to final clients.
EURO/CFD, to deal with this requirement, improves HPC (High Performance Computing) cluster and gains calculation power:
- 720 cores
- 5 To of RAM
- Rapid network InfiniBand QDR type
- Automated data storage locally and remote
CEO Karim Loueslati: “Keeping this tool within the company will permit better cost management and, it goes without saying, complete data confidentiality for our customers. This solution applies to hardware but also to software, thanks to a partnership with Microsoft HPC team. This investment in cutting edge technology allows EURO/CFD to gain reactivity and flexibility along with increased competitiveness on international market. Private funding ensures independency and flexibility which are highly appreciated by our customers.”
EURO/CFD is located in Belfort, at the heart of the Energy Valley, and in Lyon. Main activity is numerical simulation of physics phenomenon related to fluid mechanics and heat transfers. Growing interest in industrial companies for Research and Development led the company to propose customized turnkey solutions.
Energy, aeronautics or automotive industries use numerical simulation to stay innovative. Various CFD codes are available at EURO/CFD: ANSYS CFD, NUMECA or CD-ADAPCO. Great industrial experience and expertise entitle the company to intervene on restricted fields such as nuclear power and Defense.
Bigger industrial corporations trust us: Alstom, Areva, CEA, DCNS, EDF, Faurecia, GE. Expertise and quality make EURO/CFD a reference within CFD field.
