Nissan Shifts to Oracle Cloud for CFD, 3D Visualization HPC Design Workloads

Oracle announced today that Nissan Motor Co. is migrating its on-premises engineering simulation HPC workloads to run on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Nissan uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and structural simulation techniques to design and test cars for external aerodynamics and structural failures. Oracle said Nissan chose its cloud platform for its bare-metal compute, RDMA […]

2nd Gen AMD EPYC Processors Power Oracle Cloud E3 Platform

Today, AMD announced that 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors are powering the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute E3 platform, bringing a new level of high-performance computing to Oracle Cloud. “The Oracle Cloud E3 Platform enables customers to run HPC workloads such as risk simulations, molecular modeling, and contextual search. Customers will have access to virtual machines that support higher core counts, increased memory bandwidth, and the highest core count for any bare metal instance on any public cloud to run any workload.”

Developing Better Vaccines with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Researchers from the University of Bristol and the French National Centre for Scientific Research, teamed up with computer technology giant Oracle and vaccine innovator startup Imophoron to find a way to make vaccines that are thermostable, can be designed quickly, and are easily produced. “The research resulted in a new type of vaccine that can be stored at warmer temperatures, removing the need for refrigeration, in a major advance in vaccine technology.”

Altair Teams with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for HPC

“Altair and Oracle have teamed up to help customers quickly expand their engineering and high performance computing (HPC) capacity in Oracle’s cloud. Altair HyperWorks Unlimited Virtual Appliance is a fully managed engineering service that provides modeling and visualization software, solvers, and post-processing tools—all on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
