CASE STUDY: MAHLE
Turnkey Fully-Managed HPC for Engineers on AWS
MAHLE Powertrain researches, develops, and manufactures conventional combustion engines as well as hybrid systems and electric units. The goal is to optimize powertrains, systems, and components so that they work more efficiently, economically, and produce fewer emissions.
MAHLE was running up against the limitations of doing simulations on workstations, which were taking weeks for more complex models. MAHLE needed extra HPC horsepower immediately to meet their tight project deadlines, and couldn't wait for weeks for on-premise hardware.
“TotalCAE has provided us with access to high powered AWS resources to allow us to meet our tight project deadlines. Our runtime has been significantly reduced from weeks to hours and our output has increased dramatically with the help of TotalCAE” – Patrick Brooks - MAHLE
The TotalCAE Public Cloud on AWS solution was implemented to achieve the on-demand burst capability that was needed for success of this project.
TotalCAE Public Cloud for Engineers is an easy to use HPC Cloud on AWS Managed by TotalCAE. The entire solution is fully managed remotely by TotalCAE, alleviating any need to worry about how to maintain, manage, and update your HPC cloud.
TotalCAE on AWS gave MAHLE several benefits:
TotalCAE billing makes sure that simulation dollars allocated for various projects stay in budget, and to help engineers view and control spending on a per job basis. This data is then available in reports that can be viewed on-demand for charge back, auditing, or project cost review.
