"Chiyoda was challenged to complete very large simulations, within short time frames, to meet customer needs. With an overtaxed IT infrastructure, we needed a flexible approach that would provide extra computing capacity on an ongoing basis. Ansys recommended that Chiyoda partner with Fujitsu Ltd. to maximize its Ansys HPC Pack licenses and leverage additional computing capacity. Today, by using 32 parallel cores via Fujitsu’s Technical Computing Cloud, processing speeds are two times faster than if simulations were run in our own IT environment."

Around the world, engineering firms are challenged to provide optimal customer service, while keeping staffing, IT resources and other investments low. As simulation grows as a core engineering competency, it can be difficult for consulting firms to accommodate the dramatic shifts in IT demand that occur on a daily basis. Renting additional server space can take up to a week to get this capacity in place which is much too slow for a fast-based business.
Chiyoda Corporation, a leading Japanese engineering company, relies on Ansys Fluent to attack a variety of engineering challenges for clients in the global energy business. While seeking fast answers for customers, Chiyoda’s internal IT resources were too overtaxed to process large, complex simulations quickly. To create a more flexible IT infrastructure — and make the most of Chiyoda’s Ansys HPC Pack licenses — Ansys introduced Chiyoda to Fujitsu Ltd., a strategic partner offering cloud computing resources and expertise.
