Using flexible supercomputing resources is the key
The family-owned company has a responsibility to respond to the growing demand from cruise liners in an innovative way. The development of new environmentally friendly and energy efficient technologies is central to all shipyard work.
In order to meet this challenge, MEYER WERFT decided in 2016 to bring the engineering cloud provider CPU 24/7 on board due to insufficient HPC capacities.
Since then, the simulation engineers at MEYER WERFT have been working closely with the HPC specialists from CPU 24/7 and are profiting sustainably from the many years of experience in dealing with the STAR-CCM+ simulation software.
“CPU 24/7 has provided us with a highly qualified and motivated team as well as a customized architecture, adapted exactly to our applications and workfl ows.“, says Alexander Dillmann. For the peak loads that occur several times a year –which cannot be handled by engineers’ desktops – flexible and project-based access to exclusively provided and adapted HPC resources in the Engineering Cloud provides a quick remedy.
Engineering Cloud as a profitable solution for a dynamic market
As part of MEYER WERFT’s digitization process, the decision to take the Engineering Cloud from CPU 24/7 on board has proven to be a profi table solution. With the help of external computational resources, queues are
now reduced, results delivered faster and engineers given the opportunity to run more simulations simultaneously. Thus, a costly increase in internal computing resources could be counteracted, while full utilization of the already existing infrastructure was secured.
