With Rimac, the fastest electric hypercars finally reach the cloud
In 2021, Rimac and UberCloud forged a partnership, with a need for optimized innovation at its core. Rimac Technology engineers were running more and more simulations with an aging, on-premises high performance computing (HPC) cluster. While compute power continued to fall short, the demand for resources continued to grow exponentially.
During the six months, the partners worked together on implementing a fully automated self-service engineering simulation platform in Rimac’ Azure account and moved several engineering simulations on the Azure UberCloud. Designing and configuring the Azure cloud environment specifically for Rimac’s needs, this included cloud-enabling Ansys and other CAE software. Would Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of operating in the cloud versus on-premise lead to meaningful savings, and put Rimac in a position to achieve new cost efficiencies? The team had its work cut out for it.
In our new Rimac/UberCloud case study, we elaborate on:
“Using the UberCloud platform and powering our engineering simulations with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC CPUs running on latest Azure HPC cloud infrastructure,” noted a Rimac executive, “our expert simulations engineers strive for the best battery performance and even more powerful and efficient powertrain components.”
