Optimal Solutions: Developer Helps Engineers Find Optimal Fluid Dynamics Designs Faster at Lower Cost
Companies in the auto-racing, aerospace, and motorcycle industries need to develop high-performance vehicles and solutions to minimize drag, maximize lift, and, in general, get the best performance from their designs. Optimal Solutions, developer of Sculptor shape-optimization software, wanted to make it easier for customers to expand their use of the product without increasing the size of their compute clusters. The company added the capability for users to "Burst" to Windows Azure for extra compute power by using the Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP1 operating system. This gives customers affordable scalability to find the best design solutions in record time.
