CRAY® XC™ SOLUTION FOR CRASH AND SAFETY SIMULATION
The marketplace’s demand for safer, more efficient vehicles means leading automotive companies must run ever larger, more complex simulations. And they must run them quickly. The Cray XC solution for crash and safety simulation gives manufacturers the computational power they need to run their most advanced models in the shortest timeframes.
Computational Power Optimized for the Automotive Industry
We took the powerful, proven XC platform and worked with leading explicit structural analysis vendors to optimize it for the automotive industry. From its processors to its I/O and storage interfaces, every component of the Cray XC crash and safety solution has been designed to deliver faster design turns — with results in hours instead of days on actual customer models. Additionally, the adaptive, upgradable design of the XC system means you keep your TCO low, growing your system only as you need.
Crash & Safety Simulation without Commodity Cluster Limitations
The scale and performance requirements of today’s automotive simulations are outstripping commodity cluster abilities. In fact, using commodity clusters for very large and complex simulations can lead to a point of diminished, or even reduced, returns. With the Cray XC crash and safety solution, you can:
- Scale to support the highest resolution models
- Get faster iterations
- Circumvent the cluster simulation performance “wall”
