Advanced Clustering Technologies Release Case Study with Auto Research Center

Kansas City, KS, April 10, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Advanced Clustering Technologies announces the release of its latest case study, done with the cooperation of Auto Research Center, which is headquartered in Indianapolis, IN.

Auto Research Center looks for ways to stretch fuel efficiencies for a variety of vehicles: from passenger cars to race cars to commercial trucks. In addition, they are running simulations to find tactical advantages for military vehicles.

Auto Research Center expanded its cluster resources in 2012 in an effort to improve run-time on simulations. The software they develop and use for ground vehicle development, called ELEMENTS, is able to take advantage of the latest in processor and interconnect technologies that included, at that time, the newest Xeon processors and 40Gb/s InfiniBand as the method for their nodes sharing and processing their data. Engineers from Advanced Clustering Technologies worked with their counterparts in architecting the optimum configuration, then arrived on-site to install it and get it ready for production. The process went very smoothly and as a result of their experience, Advanced Clustering recently completed an upgrade to this cluster.

Using this cluster and its add-on, provided by Advanced Clustering Technologies, has helped Auto Research Center see significant increases in both simulation speeds and the time it takes to get results from the jobs they submit. Since the deployment of their Apex cluster from Advanced Clustering Technologies, "uptime has been close to 100%, and if an issue arises, ACT engineers respond promptly to minimize downtime," said Jean-Michel Esclafer de La Rode, CFD Division Manager. "These were the primary factors in Auto Research Center's decision to recently purchase a cluster addition and to continue to rely on Advanced Clustering Technologies for ARC's high performance computing (HPC) needs."
