The three year-old RISC-based servers at the AUDI AG data centre in Ingolstadt were used to calculate airflows in the vehicle interior and the dynamic behaviour of bodyworks but were at the bottom end of the performance spectrum. In computer aided engineering, performance is key, and equates to a competitive advantage-or disadvantage.
Download this white paper to find how AUDI found high-performance servers that offered a high price/performance and could be adapted without difficulty to meet future demands as simulation models became larger and more detailed.
