Wow, That Cluster is Fast & Efficient!

When a major water treatment company decided to implement its first HPC cluster to speed its ANSYS Fluent computer simulations, it called on X-ISS to design and build the system. We worked with ANSYS to build a cluster that runs with 98.9% efficiency and able to gather the results of 1.2 trillion calculations in one second.
