Fujitsu Limited successfully leveraged on the world’s fastest supercomputer, Fugaku, to demonstrate the feasibility of high performance, large-scale, very high-definition analyses with commercial applications widely used in the industrial field for simulations including fluid dynamics. The trials were conducted in collaboration with a number of application vendors between November 2020 and May 2021. Fujitsu and the participating vendors have additionally collaborated to validate operations and conduct performance tuning for commercial applications in high demand with manufacturers for Fugaku as well as the Fujitsu Supercomputer PRIMEHPC series, which draws on technology developed for the Fugaku project. Application vendors will begin to offer these commercial applications starting in June 2021.
Going forward, Fujitsu will continue to validate commercial applications using its PRIMEHPC series and will market these to manufacturers and other companies engaged in product development and technical research, contributing to the development of the industrial field as a whole.
