Cloud and Hybrid Computing

Why work in a closet when you can work in the cloud? On-premises hardware has a flexibility problem, and rigidity can limit your thinking. Which brings us to the beauty of the cloud. Limitless potential. Epic proportions of creativity. From semiconductors to financial services to manufacturing, our powerful cloud solutions deliver a faster time-to-solution and to-market with superior product quality. No closet, no ceiling, just plenty of room for blue sky thinking.

Optimizing Process Design at Renault - Faster and Easier Rim Optimization using Altair Inspire and HPC

As the traditional optimization process at Renault required many iterations, simulation engineer involvement, and a considerable amount of time, the company was looking for tools and methods to improve this process. They wanted to implement a new, easy-to-use simulation tool that would allow non-experts, part-time analysts, and designers to gain insight and accurate results in early design phases of Renault chassis projects. With the goal to enable designers to run simulation by themselves without being dependent on the engineer’s calculations, the team began using Altair Inspire. The implementation on the Altair HPC platform enabled the engineers to send their highly complex calculations to the HPC server while running calculations on their workstation. The results included time savings, an 80% increase in process automation and mass reduction up to 20%.
