Airbus Rides Modular Computing Approach to Petascale

Jul 9, 2014 |

Airbus is set to increase its high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities by building on the partnership started with HP in 2011. The aircraft manufacturer will receive a new generation of HP Performance Optimized Datacenters (PODs), boosting its computing capacity to 1.2 petaflops. HP’s new PODs for Airbus come with pre-integrated clusters of HP ProLiant server blades Read more…

Aircraft Simulations Push Computing to the Cutting Edge

Jan 26, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Guus_Dekkers_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”107″ height=”89″ />Designing an aircraft is one of the more expensive endeavors in the manufacturing business. It’s no surprise that large manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus have turned to computing, and especially high performance computing, to streamline the effort. To get a sense of the current state of the art, we asked Guus Dekkers, CIO of EADS and Airbus, to shed some light on the computational challenges involved.

Airbus Buys Into HPC-as-a-Service

Oct 18, 2011 |

High performance computing is getting cheaper every year. But that doesn’t remove the burden of buying these systems on a regular basis when your organization demands ever-increasing computing power to stay competitive. That’s the dilemma a lot of commercial HPC users find themselves in as they wonder how often they should upgrade their HPC machinery. At least one company, Airbus, determined buying HPC systems wasn’t such a great deal after all.
