Ferrari is taking the new Windows HPC Server for a spin. Desk-side supercomputing is now poised to revolutionise automotive design and engineering at the firm.
The car manufacturer's sport department is one of the first companies to test Microsoft's new high-performance computing (HPC) system.
"Ferrari is always looking for the most advanced technological solutions, and of course, the same applies for software and engineering," said Piergiorgio Grossi, head of information systems at Ferrari.
"We are always focused on scouting new technologies that can give us a competitive advantage. Windows HPC Server 2008 is very promising, and the long-lasting collaboration with Ferrari will give directions to develop a fast, familiar, high-performance computing platform for our users, engineers and administrators."
