Dell, Intel, HPC and Manufacturing
The pace of HPC deployment among Tier One manufacturers continues to accelerate. These large enterprises employ disciplines like modeling and simulation early in the design process well before creating physical prototypes.  HPC is also being used to model processes on the factory floor to increase efficiency, cut costs, and bring products to market faster.

Although the small to medium sized manufacturing firms have been slower to adopt HPC technology due to cost, workforce issues, and other factors, interest is picking up as lower cost, more flexible HPC options become available.

Dell, with its varied offerings, services and support, has a wide range of solutions available to both the Tier One manufacturing companies and the Backbone manufacturers.  With the adoption of advanced HPC technology, manufacturing is undergoing a renaissance. Dell Xeon-based servers, workstations, storage solutions, networking, and service and support are playing a key role in making this transformation happen.
