In early 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. Engineers were not happy about speed of calculations and resources available.
Tasked with performing an extensive Proof of Concept to evaluate Rimac’s existing HPC infrastructure, UberCloud set out to learn whether moving their engineering simulation workloads to the cloud would deliver a net benefit. This would enable the engineering team to meet a host of ongoing challenges while optimizing processes to achieve maximum productivity.
During the six months that the partners worked together, Rimac and UberCloud implemented several engineering simulations on Microsoft Azure. Designing and configuring the Azure cloud environment specifically for Rimac’s needs, this included 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.
