"With energy-efficient, cost-effective servers and reliable service before and after purchase, Fujitsu has once again been able to provide MTU with a new Linux high performance cluster."
To calculate air flow in engines, MTU, a longstanding German aircraft engine manufacturer, requires systems that provide good value for money for the necessary computing power over their entire lifespan. Energy costs, expected repair charges and the hardware prices play just as crucial a role in its decisions as the advice it receives on the systems required.
MTU Aero Engines AG is Germany’s leading engine manufacturer. Its core business lies in low pressure turbines, high pressure compressors, turbine center frames and manufacturing and repair services. In the commercial sector, the company plays a key role in the development, manufacture and sale of high tech components for new engines as part of international partnerships. And in terms of commercial maintenance services, it is one of the top five global service providers for aerospace engines and industrial gas turbines. In the military sector, MTU Aero Engines serves as the system partner for almost all of the German Armed Forces’ aircraft engines.
The high performance cluster provides the computing speed, reliability and performance MTU needs with 216 FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY CX2550 computing nodes and InfiniBand switches.
