Rescale and Hyundai Motor Group join forces to accelerate mobility innovation by building a multi-cloud high-performance computing environment (HPC)
We wrote about Rescale last month after the Silicon Valley-based tech startup and provider of enterprise big compute announced two executive appointments, underscoring the company’s commitment to accelerate global science and engineering breakthroughs through high-performance computing. Rescale’s platform helps solve the world’s most challenging engineering, scientific, and mathematical problems with unprecedented speed by leveraging HPC in the cloud.
Today, Rescale announced that it’s collaborating with Hyundai Motors Group to build a multi-cloud high-performance computing (HPC) environment for innovating in the smart mobility industry. This new agile environment will allow researchers to expand capacity via the cloud and break through the physical limitations of traditional research and development.
Founded in 2011 by Adam McKenzie and Joris Poort, the San Francisco, CA-based Rescale empowers the world’s transformative executives, IT leaders, engineers, and scientists to securely manage product innovation to be first to market. Rescale’s hybrid and the multi-cloud platform is built on a high-performance computing infrastructure that seamlessly matches software applications with the best cloud or on-premise architecture to run complex data processing and simulations.
“Close collaboration between IT and the field is essential for Hyundai Motor’s digital transformation strategy,” said JungSik Suh, Senior Vice President and Head of ICT Division of Hyundai Motor Group. “We are pleased that the Rescale cloud platform will be the venue for this collaboration, and expect it to increase research efficiency by moving away from the physical limitations of a static on-premise environment.”
Adding more cloud capacity and power to high-performance computing allows mobility researchers to run critical digital simulations with faster iterations, enabling more rapid technological breakthroughs such as the development of AI-powered autonomous vehicles or enhancing automotive fuel efficiency and safety features. The Rescale turnkey platform makes it possible to easily run hundreds of simulation software on multi-cloud high-performance computing infrastructure, allowing researchers to scale and accelerate research as needed on a single platform, accessible at any time and anywhere.
Until now, the Hyundai Motor Group Research Institute’s Aerodynamic Development Team was restricted by the resources of existing on-premise infrastructure, limiting the number of simulation tasks that could be processed simultaneously. By moving to a customized multi-cloud environment powered by Rescale, Hyundai Motor Group researchers will be able to scale simulations according to need, allowing for significantly more tasks to run simultaneously with optimized team collaboration, and ultimately leading to a faster time to market.
“As an intelligent control plane for big compute, Rescale enables researchers to collaborate seamlessly, and ensures simulation workloads always run on the most performant architectures from our multi-cloud provider infrastructure network,” said Edward Hsu VP of Product at Rescale. “We are pleased to be working with Hyundai Motor Group to drive unprecedented mobility innovation.”
