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."

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
