HP’s Performance Optimized Datacenters enabled Airbus, one of the largest aircraft manufacturers, to double its usable supercomputing power by boosting computing performance for aircraft development while saving both energy and space.
This is the final phase of a four-year high-performance computing deployment. Airbus has deployed two HP PODs, comprising the world“™s largest industrial HPC system and one of the first confirmed commercial HPC container contracts. Data center locations include Toulouse, France and Hamburg, Germany.
The HP PODs contain an HP Converged Infrastructure including servers, storage, networking, software, management and integrated power. 2,016 clustered HP ProLiant BL280 G6 blade servers enable the two containers to deliver the equivalent of nearly 1,000 square meters of data center space.
