How Jaguar Land Rover made the best use of big data and HPC to design the award-winning Evoque*

Jaguar Land Rover created a state-of-the-art visualization center where thousands, even millions of simulations can be conducted in the time and expense of a single live test. Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year for 2012, the stunning Range Rover Evoque*, is the result. The center enables Jaguar to reduce costs and the environmental impact of refining their designs, prototyping, crash and fuel testing, and track runs. This center, and the vast amount of big data it generates, utilizes HPC compute clusters and EMC Isilon* scale-out storage systems, both powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor. 

Manufacturing customers are turning to Intel technologies to make more efficient use of big data for high-performance computing, analysis, and storage during concept, design, and prototyping phases of product development. Intelligent storage based on Intel Xeon processors enables optimizations such as data compression, de-duplication, and automated tiering to better manage the quantity, complexity, and cost of data that big data usage models generate. Scale-out storage architectures use a modular approach to scale performance with capacity beyond the constraints of traditional storage systems while managing the data as a single, shared volume for ease of deployment, data access, and analysis.

At the Intersection: Cloud Meets Big Data

Big data and new enterprise cloud architectures are revolutionizing every industry in every country in the world. “At The Intersection” is a new kind of Web TV show, sponsored by Intel and EMC, that finds and explores the cutting edge of these trailblazing new technologies and the fascinating gurus driving them.

Hosted by Ken Jennings, a popular tech blogger (and all-time Jeopardy! champ), the show offers direct audience access and live Twitter interaction with the tech rock stars who are driving these massive changes. Each 15 minute episode features a 5 minute tech feature story followed by a lively panel discussion on the topic, which then connects to a live Twitter conversation.

The pilot episode explores how Jaguar Land Rover and lead designer Gerry McGovern are making use of big data through the capabilities of HPC clusters and EMC Isilon scale-out storage systems to revolutionize design, visualization, and simulation, as they did for the award-winning Range Rover Evoque.
