Altair® HPCWorks™, our HPC and cloud platform, gives automotive designers and manufacturers unparalleled control over the design process. With the industry’s leading tools, users can slash development times, reduce errors, minimize physical prototyping, cut emissions and waste, and so much more.
When C-TEC — a young and innovative German company specializing in the development and production of intelligent devices, machines, and systems — needed GPU-accelerated high-performance computing to meet the latest E.U. standards for passenger-vehicle fuel efficiency and emissions, they chose to work with Altair and Oracle on a solution: the turnkey Altair® Unlimited™ virtual appliance on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The fully managed Altair cloud appliance on OCI’s superior bare-metal infrastructure removes the need for complex HPC management and enables flexibility, easy scaling, and top performance. It delivers unlimited use of a wide range of Altair solver software, plus HPC resource management tools and a user-friendly web portal. With Altair Unlimited, the C-TEC team avoided the high cost of on-premises HPC architecture.
When the team at propulsion-system developer PUNCH Torino needed to build a new HPC infrastructure from scratch to accommodate their users, they partnered with Altair’s technology experts to plan, implement, and configure a complex, multi-vendor cloud architecture designed to take advantage of several different cloud providers including Google Cloud, Azure, Oracle Cloud, and AWS. Components of the solution include Altair® PBS Professional® for optimized workload management and cloud bursting; Altair® Control™ to empower PUNCH’s IT team with tools for monitoring, configuration management, and reporting; and Altair® Access™ to give users a variety of easy cloud options via an easy-to-use portal.
PATAC needed to develop an efficient CAE simulation management platform to accommodate their changing needs and accelerate digital growth. After a nearly two-year strategy, screening, and selection process, PATAC selected Altair as its technology partner for the platform’s development and implementation.
OEMs and suppliers include every possible technique to support lightweighting in the automotive industry. It is common to use optimization techniques in order to identify and tab existing lightweight potentials as well as design tailor rolled components in a vehicle, the design optimization of which is normally based on crash simulations. Due to the large size of these simulations, a single run can take 1 to 12 hours. To conduct all the simulation runs needed for assessment and evaluation of different design concepts, the use of HPC is necessary. Altair Unlimited virtual appliance was able to reduce the turnaround time for a lightweight study significantly at Mubea.
