    4. 4. Success Stories: Defence Bull helps AWE scientists push back the boundaries of science: To carry out their important work in support of the UK’s nuclear deterrent scientists at AWE need a vast amount of computing power. Until earlier this year, the organisation was reliant on one main supercomputer. However, this year, after a two year competitive tender process, AWE has accepted delivery of three supercomputers from Bull Education Making the impossible possible: Cardiff’s High Performance Computer Can we work out how the stars formed? How the earth’s crust moves? How to improve treatment for cancer patients? How to date an ancient burial site to within a decade? Cardiff University’s High Performance Computer does all of this – and more. Supplied by Bull, the computer is one of the most advanced in the UK academic sector, giving a whole new dimension to Cardiff University research Finance SG CIB, Société Générale Corporate and Investment Banking, was looking for a solution that would give it both the performance it needed and great flexibility of use. So SG CIB turned to Bull, whose HPC-on-demand offering corresponded to its demands: power, flexibility, responsiveness, high levels of security, commitment and cost control. Bull not only provides servers but also network infrastructure, security, hosting and associated services. Not only the architecture itself, but also the way the services are delivered© Bull, 2012 4
    5. 5. Success Stories: Manufacturing Wirth Research set to race into the future with Bull High Performance Computing Innovative engineering consultancy group, Wirth Research has signed a partnership agreement with Bull, which will help streamline its engineering design and development capabilities. Under the terms of this long term contract, Bull will deliver high performance computing (HPC) solutions; Panasas ActiveStor™ storage and services to Wirth Research. Bull will also provide consultancy, enabling Wirth to optimise its use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) within the Bull HPC environment and streamline the design process. Oil and Gas IFP updates its central HPC resources IFP – a world-class public sector research and training center in France – has recently updated its High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources, in a project which follows the pattern seen in the HPC world since 2003: replacing vector computers with Linux clusters to address all the various needs of research and development. Bull subsidiary Serviware responded to an invitation to tender published by IFP at the end of 2007, to provide significant pre-sales assistance needed to put together a comprehensive solution that met the institute’s needs and was competitive in terms of both price and performance. Research New Bull supercomputer powers weather and climate research at Royal Netherlands Meteorological Insti KNMI, the Dutch national institute for weather, climate research and seismology, has aquired a new Bull supercomputer that is is forty times more powerful than their current system. This offers KNMI more opportunities to issue early warnings in case of extreme weather. It also enhances KNMIs capabilities for climate research. According to Frits Brouwer, KNMI director, KNMI has selected Bull for its comprehensive solution: "The hardware, combined with Bulls knowledge support, gives us confidence in our cooperation. With Bull, we expect to have found the right partner who is able to address our computing needs for the coming years."© Bull, 2012 5
    6. 6. Success Stories: Services CAPS launches CAPS Compute Lab with BULL and NVIDIA CAPS Entreprise, the industry leader in development tools for high performance applications, relies on Bull servers for its CAPS Compute Lab, a first and exclusive EMEA solution center for hybrid computing with both BULL and NVIDIA as partners. As the industry is shifting toward hybrid computation technologies, the need for a solution enabling to rapidly and successfully evaluate the performance of software applications has become crucial. Healthcare High Performance Computing plays its role in the fight against cancer New techniques for calculating planned radiation doses delivered in the course of external radiotherapy cancer treatments bring a tremendous increase in precision. However a large amount of compute power is needed to achieve enough precision in an acceptable calculation time for clinical application. This is precisely the issue addressed by Bull’s HPC Centre of Expertise, which studied the problem and delivered a supercomputer adapted to the task in hand Planet 51 designed by Ilion Animation Studios on a Bull supercomputer Medias The design of a 3D animated movie is one of the most intensive computer-aided tasks, both in terms of computing power and hardware ressources. The Planet 51 movie project was born in 2002. Since then, Ilion Animation Studios has created an entire parallel universe around Planet 51 using leading-edge technologies. With a budget of some $70 million. Ilion Animation Studios, which has designed the 3D animation of Planet 51, chose Bull to design and upgrade its server farm dedicated to graphics rendering. “We were impressed by Bull’s remarkable ability to design and configure solutions in extremely critical situations, involving a multitude of systems and, above all, very strict deadlines,” explains Gonzalo Rueda, IT Director at Ilion .© Bull, 2012 6
