HPCWire: Revolutionizing Innovation: When HPC Meets Cloud

by Roger Rintala | May 5, 2014 3:00 pm

Looking for answers to your questions about cloud-based HPC?

Attend the HPCWire webinar “Revolutionizing Innovation: When HPC Meets Cloud” sponsored by Dell.


Where innovation in engineering and product development is the key to marketplace success, high performance computing is the key to accelerated innovation.  Cost-effectively leveraging limited resources is a challenge for which on-demand HPC in the cloud can be an effective tool when the engineering tools and workflow are designed for it.


Intelligent Light’s own Steve Legensky joins Intersect 360′s Addison Snell and Larry Smarr of Calit2 in this webinar hosted by HPCWire’s Nicole Hemsoth. Mr. Legensky uses real world examples to show the motivation, success criteria, methods, and results that make on-demand HPC a compelling investment for small and large organizations alike.

IL University Partner – Concordia University Chases SAE Supermileage Crown

by Roger Rintala | April 2, 2014 2:38 pm

Concordia SAE Racing[1]

Concordia University Students are developing their vehicle for the 2014 SAE Supermileage competition.

The Concordia University team is busy finalizing their design, paper submission, and preparation for the SAE Supermileage Competition[2] to be held June 5-6, 2014.


The team is pursuing both simulation and physical testing, correlating results, and committing parts to manufacturing.  All the components are fabricated by the team members.


Good luck to the entire team!  Stay tuned for updates and to see the vehicle after the unveiling!

CFD Advances Racing Bike Performance (FieldView & AcuSolve)[1]
Intelligent Light’s multi-year collaboration with Acusim and Altair resulted in important new developments in CFD workflow design and automation.  The productivity gains allowed the study’s subject matter, aerodynamic bicycle racing wheel design to be better understood than had been previously possible given the state of the art in wind tunnel testing and the limited CFD that had been applied to the problem.Concept to Reality (C2R) Magazine covers the story in the article: CFD Advances Racing Bike Performance[2].


Using high-fidelity modeling and truly inovative post-processing, study authors Matthew N. Godo, Ph. D.(Intelligent Light) and David Corson, Ph. D. (Altair) explored 3.6GB of steady state and 1.2TB of unsteady data from tens of thousands of calculations in days using a well engineered automated CFD workflow.

Dell features Intelligent Light as Cloud Success story

by Media | March 12, 2012 12:00 am

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.
