HyperCloud memory reduces simulation times by up to 60 percent and helps enhance Formula 1 Race Car Performance
IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 15 -- Netlist, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced that its HyperCloud memory module is revving up the performance of Red Bull Racing's Formula 1 Racing Car simulations, which includes computational fluid dynamics (CFD). HyperCloud overcomes the memory constraints associated with CFD simulations and large complex models.
"In Formula 1, we continually need to leverage technologies that can help us innovate," said Nathan Sykes, computational fluid dynamics manager at Red Bull Racing. "Using HyperCloud with our CFD simulations allows us to significantly increase our Formula 1 design productivity. With HyperCloud, we achieve 60 percent greater server utilization and are now running multiple jobs per machine. Launching multiple jobs on one machine increases the number of simulations which can be built on existing hardware, increasing the design throughput of the CFD department."
To enhance the accuracy of its simulation tests, Red Bull Racing leverages the benefits of CFD, which utilizes complex numerical methods and algorithms to analyze and solve problems that involve fluid flows. HyperCloud memory maximizes the performance and productivity of these aerodynamic modeling simulations which are memory intensive and require high-end servers to achieve sufficient performance to complete this level of analysis. Currently, Red Bull Racing uses ANSYS CFD simulation software running on HP DL380 servers configured with 16GB HyperCloud memory.
"Red Bull Racing is yet another example of how the high performance computing benefits of HyperCloud memory are significantly reducing the time spent on complex simulations," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Netlist. "We are excited to be a part of Red Bull Racing's compute platform and look forward to a longstanding relationship."
