Inspur Information and NEC Deutschland Launch an HPCaaS Solution Accelerating Automotive Design Simulation in Europe


Inspur Information, a leading IT infrastructure solutions provider, and NEC Deutschland, an HPC solutions provider for scientific and engineering applications, have joined forces to provide an HPC as a Service (HPCaaS) solution for computer-aided engineering (CAE) to auto manufactures in Europe. Inspur and NEC seek to bring infrastructure resilience and energy efficiency to high-performance computing (HPC) via on-demand usage, deep integration, and advanced cooling technologies.

In Automotive R&D, design verification is the most lengthy and expensive process in vehicle development, including real-life collision testing. However, an HPC cluster powering CAE applications can virtualize this process. Simulations can be performed faster, and without the expense of damaging real vehicles. The joint HPCaaS solution with Inspur-powered hardware and NEC system integration and implementation, allows for precise CAE simulations, such as vehicle crash simulations, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), structural mechanics, wind resistance, wind noise, thermal management, fatigue durability, welding simulation, stamping analysis, noise analysis, etc. This solution can provide more flexible and scalable computing resources and efficiency to meet the needs of customers' on-demand requirements.

The use of Inspur’s leading HPC servers for automotive CAE, greatly improve performance, lower energy consumption, and reduce data center space requirements by up to 50%. This results in virtualized simulations that are environmentally friendly, increased development speed, and a reduction in new vehicle R&D costs by up to 70%. This power is further harnessed via Inspur’s parameter tuning and application optimization for CAE simulations, along with NEC’s rich experience in system integration.

A German auto manufacturer with an annual production of over 450,000 vehicles is one of the largest recipients of this new HPC solution for CAE automotive manufacturing from Inspur and NEC. The company required powerful and green HPC clusters to support its manufacturing development over the next 3-4 years as part of an overall HPCaaS concept.

The Inspur-NEC HPC cluster significantly improved HPC performance for this auto manufacturer while still fulfilling the requirements for environmental sustainability, restricted power consumption, and reduced TCO. It utilizes Inspur’s NF5180M6 1U dual-socket rack server for maximum performance, high-density, and low power consumption.

The Inspur NF5180M6 servers are powered by 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, DDR4 3200MhHz memory, and Mellanox's latest HDR InfiniBand network, giving it the ultimate performance-to-size ratio in a petite 1U chassis. Trapezoidal radiators increase the surface area for improved heat dissipation and the BMC control strategy is optimized for peak efficency. This reduces fan power consumption, and enables support up to two 270W high-performance CPUs. Further power savings comes from an advanced platinum power supply that limits energy losses to less than 5%. Using the same power consumption levels, Inspur’s NF5180M6 performance in collision simulations improved by 30% compared to previous generation solutions.

This is a testament to Inspur’s ability to design infrastructure solutions that are both green and powerful, offering improved utilization of CAE software applications and collision simulation in the fields of engine development, cooling systems, vehicle flow field, and aerodynamic development design. With its green and efficient HPC server products, Inspur helped this automotive manufacturer run multiple HPC subsystems and more than 150 CAE applications that satisfy performance requirements, significantly reduce TCO, and promote environmental sustainability.

“Demand for vehicle personalization, autonomous driving, and electrification is growing,” said Liu Jun, Vice President of Inspur Information and General Manager of AI and HPC. “The automotive industry’s R&D investment in the field of high-performance computing continues to grow. The joint solution with NEC Deutschland will help automobile companies to improve competitiveness, innovation, and efficiency.”

Yuichi Kojima, Managing Director at NEC Deutschland said that “Computing power is fundamental to innovation speed and product quality. Based on Inspur’s high performance products and energy-saving technologies, and our capability to meet customers’ demands faster and easier, we can help Europe advance its digitalization efforts and be a showcase for sustainable development.”

Inspur Information is the world’s second largest server provider. Its servers and solutions have been widely used in various industries globally. According to Gartner, Inspur server shipments ranked second worldwide in 2021 with a 9.4% market share. It is a member of the European Technology Platform for High Performance Computing (ETP4HPC) and is committed to co-building an ecosystem boosting the development of HPC industry in the region.

Teva Announces Promising Interim Results From Its Study PEARL, About the Impact of AJOVY ® (fremanezumab)24.6.2022 18:54:00 CEST | Press release

Teva Pharmaceuticals Europe B.V. today announces promising interim results from its Pan-European Real World study (PEARL), presented for the first time at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) Congress in Vienna, Austria. The two-year Pan-European Real World (PEARL) prospective, observational study of AJOVY® (fremanezumab), looks at its effectiveness in patients with chronic migraine or episodic migraine, and is an ongoing study sponsored by Teva Pharmaceuticals Europe BV.1 These findings further offer insight into the treatment of migraine in real-world clinical practice. The interim findings were presented by Faisal Mohammad Amin, Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Out of the total planned 1100 patients in PEARL, 389 patients are included in the interim analysis presented. These findings show that 54.7% of patients in the study had their monthly-migraine-days reduced by 50% or more, over the six-month period from the start of treatment. Addit

Suzano outlines ESG milestone achievements and commitments at second annual ESG call24.6.2022 16:14:00 CEST | Press release

Suzano, the world’s largest hardwood pulp producer, today held its second annual ESG Call centered around its ambition to be a ‘regenerative company for a regenerative society’. Today’s ESG Call spotlighted measurable progress and ambitions across three core areas of action: climate change, biodiversity and social development. On Climate Change, the ACT initiative of the French Government and CDP scored Suzano ahead of its pulp and paper industry peers in virtually every metric. In 2021, Suzano brought forward its target for removing 40 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere from 2030 to 2025 which is being achieved through improvements to its industrial processes, such as systematically replacing the use of fossil fuels at its industrial plants with biomass, and through conversion of degraded land. As part of the company’s social commitments, Suzano launched a target in 2020 to lift 200,000 people out of poverty. This is more than pertinent, given that in Brazil, 10% of th
