"Fujitsu was most knowledgeable about High Performance Computing systems, providing all the information we needed to get started quickly, and with fast response time. Fujitsu took the time to analyze our business needs to provide a system design which is scalable for the future and will help us stay competitive."
Hakan Korkmaz, Information and Communication Technologies Director, Tofaş
Tofaş is Turkey’s largest automotive manufacturer and produces over 400,000 vehicles per year for brands including Fiat, Citroën, Peugeot, Opel and Vauxhall. The company achieved accolades from the World Class Manufacturing organization for its factory in Bursa, whose infrastructure can compete internationally in the field of vehicle development. Tofaş’ R&D center tests vehicle concepts and elements such as style, interior design, suspension and engine configuration.
Tofaş needed a High Performance Computing (HPC) platform to carry out the increasingly complex algorithms that help it to design the kinds of vehicle that people want to purchase.
