Hewlett Packard Enterprise to build supercomputer with BASF
Based on the latest generation of HPE Apollo 6000 systems, the new supercomputer will drive the digitalization of BASF's worldwide research.
The new system will make it possible to answer complex questions and greatly reduce the time required to obtain results from several months to days across all research areas.
As part of BASF's digitalization strategy, the company plans to significantly expand its capabilities to run virtual experiments with the supercomputer.
In addition, it will help BASF reduce time to market and costs by, for example, simulating processes on catalyst surfaces more precisely or accelerating the design of new polymers with pre-defined properties.
Developed and built by HPE, the new supercomputer will consist of several hundred computer nodes.
The supercomputer will also leverage HPE Apollo Systems to give customers simplified administration efficiencies and flexibility to match their solutions to the workload and lower their total cost of ownership. ■
