ANSYS, HLRS And Cray Set New Supercomputing Record

15 November 2016

ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS), the High Performance Computing Center (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart and Cray Inc. have set a new supercomputing world record by scaling ANSYS Fluent to over 172,000 computer cores on the HLRS supercomputer Hazel Hen, a Cray XC40 system – enabling organizations to create innovative and groundbreaking complete virtual prototypes of their products faster and more efficiently than ever.

ANSYS, HLRS and Cray have pushed the boundaries of supercomputing by achieving a new supercomputing milestone by scaling ANSYS software to 172,032 cores on the Cray® XC40™ supercomputer, hosted at HLRS, running at 82 percent efficiency. This is nearly a 5x increase over the record set two years ago when Fluent was scaled to 36,000 cores.
