Intrinsic to modelling and simulation is the use of High Performance Computing (HPC), a strategic technology at the forefront of innovation and competitive advantage.
Offering high standards of data security, we provide flexible, on demand access to a pay-as-you-go HPC cluster; a Cray® CS400 cluster supercomputer, utilising Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family formerly codenamed “Broadwell”, with a ArcaStream parallel storage system. Also accessible are NVIDIA Tesla® Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) accelerators used to accelerate applications, which will provide customers with faster response times and enhanced performance levels for demanding computational tasks. Providing a highly agile platform utilised for all types of workloads including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and engineering data analysis, system access is enabled via a secure VPN or by visiting the centre.
To ensure efficient utilisation of the HPC, our team of IT systems and industry specialists in modelling and simulation provide in-depth knowledge and expertise, to support you on your journey. Through commercial partnerships, we offer easy access to a range of key industry Open Source and commercial demo software trials through partners in addition to publicly available test cases.
