News Linux Networx announced today John Deere is using a Linux Networx™ Evolocity® cluster supercomputer for next generation product development.

John Deere is using the Linux Networx cluster for advanced engineering analysis including computational fluid dynamics and structural finite element analysis. The cluster has demonstrated improved computing performance for the company, performing several classes of analysis jobs at more than double their previous speed. The flexibility of Linux cluster technology also allows John Deere to make the cluster available as a central corporate resource to be tuned for multiple applications in the future.

Linux clustering is a method of linking multiple computers together to form a unified and more powerful system. The Linux Networx cluster designed for John Deere uses 24 AMD Athlon MP processors, Clusterworx and ICE Box™ cluster management tools from Linux Networx and STAR-CD software from CD adapco Group.

“The cost advantage of clusters is outstanding, and with companies like Linux Networx delivering turnkey clusters optimized for engineering designs, our clients are regularly achieving fast solutions previously accessible only to supercomputers," said Steve Feldman, Director of Software Development for CD adapco Group.
