Scalable and dedicated HPC environments
The number of necessary computing procedures is subject to significant – and sometimes spontaneous – fluctuations, which is why demands on computing resources are difficult to plan. To cope with internal HPC server peak loads Brose chose the provider CPU 24/7. Internal computing capacities are expanded by external resources in Germany that are available for computational engineers for more than one year.
CPU 24/7 offers Brose access to a scalable, customized HPC simulation environment for the calculation of different CAE tasks, as for example crash simulations of seat structures and latch systems. This dedicated and preconfigured (“ready-to-use”) CAEaaS infrastructure can be used in different locations. The security required is ensured by protocols with basic encryption and a VPN tunnel with an additional firewall. Furthermore, individual security and servicelevel-agreements were compiled.
Advantages of this solution
- Flexible access to scalable, customized bare metal HPC resources which are hosted in Germany
- First level support by HPC and CAE specialists with clearly defined reaction and response times and monthly reporting
- Predictable billing for the department
Brose is the fifth‐largest family‐owned automotive supplier in the world. Every second new vehicle uses mechatronic systems from Brose in their doors, seats or electric engines. More than 24.000 employees in 60 locations and 23 countries generated a turnover of more than 6.1 billion EUR in 2015. Brose invests 8 % of these sales into research and development. Whether it is lightweight construction, electronically commutated engines or door and seat systems: a variety of patents confirms the strong innovative power of the Brose Group.||||
