Intelligent Light user Dr. Kenji Ono (Univ. of Tokyo & RIKEN) is working on a project for a Japanese automaker with the goal of turning around 10-20 high-fidelity, unsteady analyses overnight using over 10,000 HPC cores on Riken’s K-Computer. The results included over 30 billion cells and over 1TB per time step and were post-processed using FieldView on a 256 processor visualization server (x86). FieldView with parallel I/O and extraction read, created an iso-surface (laplacian of P), and wrote an XDB file in 120 seconds quickly making the big data accessible and useful. The 15M polygon isosurface was explored interactively on a laptop during the VINAS User Conference in Japan.
Intelligent Light receives prestigious HPC Innovation Excellence Award from IDC
Software company helps manufacturer grow business, add jobs as result of HPC success
Rutherford, NJ, November 20, 2012 – Intelligent Light has been recognized by International Data Corporation (IDC) with their HPC Innovation Excellence Award, presented at the SC12 supercomputing industry conference. IDC acknowledged the impact of the company’s work to develop computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workflows through the study of bicycle racing wheel aerodynamics.
The HPC Innovation Excellence Award recognizes noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing (HPC) technologies. The program’s main goals are to showcase return on investment (ROI) and scientific success stories involving HPC; to help other users better understand the benefits of adopting HPC and justify HPC investments, especially for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs); to demonstrate the value of HPC to funding bodies and politicians; and to expand public support for increased HPC investments.

Dell produced a case study about Intelligent Light’s use of HPC Cloud computing resources from Dell and R Systems.
With computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data sets growing larger all the time, Intelligent Light needed a way to process data faster without investing in and maintaining its own in-house high-performance computing (HPC) resources.
- 20-fold faster completion of research with HPC on-demand (vs. HPC workstation)
- Able to empower new customers by providing fast access to HPC resources
- Improved CFD data management and workflow

Unsteady rotorcraft CFD analysis can generate mountains of grid and solution data, making transfer across networks time-consuming and often impractcal. Further the large data places a strain on available storage resources. XDB-based CFD workflow, made possible by FieldView 13, enables analysts to significantly reduce data size and better utilize remote HPC systems, achieving dramatic performance and productivity gains in the process. The means getting to answers faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.
CFD is a crucial engineering strength at Red Bull Racing where over 80% of their aerodynamic design work is driven by CFD. CFD Team Leader, Nathan Sykes talks about where the challenges and achievements of his team using FieldView and automated CFD post-processing.
Red Bull Formula 1 – An elite team in Formula 1 Racing
