Supercomputing the Hyperloop on Azure

Today Cycle Computing announced that the HyperXite team is using CycleCloud software to manage Hyperloop simulations using ANSYS Fluent on the Azure Cloud. “Our mission is optimize and economize the transportation of the future and Cycle Computing has made that endeavor so much easier, said Nima Mohseni, Simulation Lead, HyperXite. “We absolutely require a solution that can compress and condense our timeline while providing the powerful computational results we require. Thank you to Cycle Computing for making a significant difference in our ability to complete our work.”

SGI and ANSYS Achieve New World Record in HPC

Over at the ANSYS Blog, Tony DeVarco writes that the company worked with SGI to break a world record for HPC scalability. “Breaking last year’s 129,024 core record by more than 16,000 cores, SGI was able to run the ANSYS provided 830 million cell gas combustor model from 1,296 to 145,152 CPU cores.This reduces the total solver wall clock time to run a single simulation from 20 minutes for 1,296 cores to a mere 13 seconds using 145,152 cores and achieving an overall scaling efficiency of 83%.”
