BP selects Microsoft Azure Cloud for company-wide platform as part of its modernization program

BP - smallOn July 25, Microsoft announced that BP, a leading global energy company, has selected Microsoft Azure as part of its global cloud computing strategy. The agreement will see BP move advanced workloads to Azure out of existing corporate data centers as part of the company’s modernization and transformation agenda – an agenda which is designed to deliver a sustainable step change in the company’s long-term performance. By moving its proprietary data lake to Microsoft’s cloud platform, and utilizing Azure services, with state-of-the-art visualization and predictive tools, BP will enable rapid data analysis, with faster insights and decision-making. “We have been impressed with Microsoft Azure Platform-as-a-Service, and its building block approach, particularly for our advanced workload requirements,” says Steve Fortune, Group CIO of BP.

A New Record: How HPC Reduces CFD Simulation Time from Weeks to One Day

Shahin at KAUST smallSome records are broken for glory, while others, like HPC, have more practical results. Compare 2017 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest champion Joey Chestnut’s record-breaking feat of eating 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes, to ANSYS, Saudi Aramco and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) shattering the supercomputing record by more than 5x. Chestnut was awarded the “Mustard Belt” for the 10th time, $10,000 and an additional 20,000+ calories for his impressive performance. By leveraging high performance computing, Saudi Aramco and KAUST worked with ANSYS to speed up a complex simulation of a separation vessel from several weeks to an overnight run! Read the story HERE. BTW, if you don’t have access to a supercomputer like Shaheen you can still get high-performance computing resources in the Cloud :-)

Intel’s Raj Hazra on how new technologies are Clouding our Future

Raj Hazra

In this video from ISC 2017, Raj Hazra, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Enterprise and Government Group at Intel, discusses key trends impacting the future growth of High Performance Computing. He focuses on the opportunities of enabling HPC in the cloud, and how this drives the need for a consistent platform that bridges the worlds of dedicated supercomputers and hyperscale cloud service providers. See the ISC video on insideHPC HERE.

Univa Case Study: Containerizing Engineering Simulations for Faster CFD at Trek Bicycle

trek2_optTrek Bicycle engineers regularly perform a large number of computational fluid dynamics simulations to design aerodynamic, faster bikes. In addition to CFD codes, the company is reliant on other off-the-shelf CAD/CAE codes to help work toward new models. At the helm of much of this effort at Trek is Mio Suzuki who performs CFD analysis and is also responsible for bringing a new way of thinking about executing such models on HPC resources. Currently, Trek, under Suzuki’s guidance, is moving toward a solution using a unique approach to HPC Docker containers, Univa middleware, and Microsoft Azure clusters provided by UberCloud, which was initially one of the consulting groups Suzuki worked with when choosing a cloud platform provider.

Cloud Seeds Simulation For SMEs

ANSYS AdvantageProducing higher-quality products. Shortening time to market. Reducing product failure early in the design process. These are well-established needs in the manufacturing sector that can be addressed by making high-performance computing (HPC) simulation part of the early phase of a product life cycle. There are more than 300,000 small and medium-size manufacturing enterprises (SMEs) in the U.S. alone, and many are reliant upon desktop workstations for their routine CAE design and development work. According to the U.S. Council on Competitiveness, more than half of these SMEs need more computing power.
