Satisfying Your Need for Speed: Server Technology Helps to Achieve Aerodynamic Vehicle Design
A world-renowned automotive manufacturer uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation software, analyzing huge amounts of data to optimize the design of their vehicles. They selected GIGABYTE’s high density multi-node servers to build a high-performance computing cluster for their vehicle design center, making the most efficient use of the limited space available to deliver maximum computing power to their aerodynamic engineering team.
Since the fuel consumption of a vehicle will be affected by air resistance, an optimized chassis design will reduce drag and therefore improve fuel consumption efficiency.
Digital Technology Drives Innovation in Automotive Design
Due to advances in digital technology, aerodynamic engineers can now use software to process and analyze huge amounts of data to better optimize vehicle design (shown in diagram)
Vehicle Design Relies on High Density Servers for Precise Calculations
GIGABYTE’s H261-Z60 features 4 server nodes in a 2U chassis, making it suitable for high-density compute applications. Compared with other server products currently on the market, it supports up to double the compute capacity, as well as providing flexible expansion availability and optimized power and cooling capabilities for more efficient power consumption and a reduction of operating expenditure.
In a Limited Space, GIGABTYE’s Servers Show Off Sophisticated Thermal Design
According to the customer’s needs, the servers would be deployed in the office building of the aerodynamic engineering team rather than a dedicated data center or server room; the different heat dissipation requirements of these two spaces vary greatly. (as shown in diagram)
The air-cooled H261-Z60 can maintain stable operation even under high loads during pressure testing.
Rigorously Tested, So GIGABYTE Can Guarantee Excellent Quality
High Performance Computing (HPC) can complete complex and large-scale computational analysis workloads in a relatively short amount of time, bringing about many breakthroughs in scientific and technological development. HPC is also an indispensable tool for contemporary scientific research, and the number of fields that it can be applied to is constantly growing, such as for weather forecasting, earthquake imaging or genetic analysis. Even oil extraction can now rely on HPC to improve process efficiency and accuracy, allowing mining companies to save a huge amount of money and giving them a greater competitive advantage in the energy market.
As environmental protection is becoming a pressing issue in recent years due to climate change and global warming, data centers – which traditionally consume a huge amount of electricity – are being designed to better meet the goals of energy efficiency and carbon reduction. When a national aerospace center in Europe wanted to expand their data center, with a requirement for servers that could maintain normal operation in an ambient temperature environment of 40°C without the need for air conditioning systems, GIGABYTE’s server team provided a solution with Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), combining compute, storage and networking into a single system, and equipped with liquid cooling technology to successfully overcome the harsh high temperature environment, enabling the data center to efficiently process an enormous amount of space-related research data within a limited space.
