Nissan: Nissan, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Siemens rise automotive industry’s initial full-scale subsequent era car pattern platform

Posted on 22. Dec, 2015 by in Nissan Canada

YOKOHAMA, Japan Nissan Motor Corporation, Ltd., Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Siemens AG currently announced they have grown a industry’s first* next-generation car pattern infrastructure that provides Nissan’s tellurian RD centers with a continuous, high-speed tie to a latest car expansion data. The solution’s engineering practical desktop infrastructure (VDI) gives Nissan some-more coherence and manageability of tellurian car design. Nissan has started to use a infrastructure in North America and Europe.

Engineering VDI uses modernized graphics estimate formed on desktop virtualization technology. It allows engineers to entrance a practical 3D CAD workstation on servers and control them on a desktop environment. With this technology, Nissan is means to store a latest information on a servers that teams around a universe can entrance during any time. This will raise capability and usability, as good as urge cost efficiencies and disaster risk management.

This new height is a entirely scalable, subsequent era car pattern resolution that adopts engineering VDI globally, utilizing servers with a many modernized graphics processing, high-performance storage, program and network acceleration technology. Nissan will primarily use it during dual expansion centers: NISSAN Technical Center North America and NISSAN Technical Center Europe. With this platform, Nissan expects to knowledge a same capability of CAD operations during any tellurian sites, and dramatically diminution costs compared with destiny complement enhancements, chronicle upgrades and handling costs by consolidating and improving infrastructure management. Furthermore, Nissan skeleton to enhance use of a height in a future, given it has a coherence to be adopted globally for car development.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) due a innovative end-to-end Engineering VDI solution, including a hardware and software, as good as consulting and support services. HPE fabricated plan teams opposite Japan, a United States and Europe to deploy, determine and exam a solution. This ensured a well-spoken doing and eventually a flexible, quick and arguable complement for Nissan.  

The Engineering VDI resolution includes a following HPE technology:

  • HPE ProLiant WS460c Graphics Server Blades – allows workstation-class high-performance graphics that provides engineers with a centralize, virtualized, full-fidelity desktop knowledge including support for perfectionist 3D graphics applications
  • HPE 3PAR StoreServ 7400 Storage – allows Nissan to store and conduct information from a subsequent era car pattern resolution on a single, rarely scalable and strong Tier-1 storage platform
  • HPE Systems Insight Manager – allows easy government of Nissan’s IT infrastructure, augmenting complement uptime for teams around a world

The resolution also utilizes Citrix XenDesktop Desktop Virtualization Technology.

The program record substructure for Nissan’s Engineering VDI resolution was supposing by Siemens’ product lifecycle government program business. Siemens’ NX™ program is a core computer-aided pattern (CAD) resolution for Nissan, used via a engineering and expansion of a vehicles. To safeguard a high turn of VDI performance, NX has been entirely approved on all of a hardware required to support this system. In addition, Siemens’ Teamcenter® program serves as a digital fortitude for Nissan’s VDI solution. Teamcenter® is a extensive product information government complement that provides easy and fast entrance to all product associated information to all suitable personnel, regardless of their location.

NISSAN’s Celso Guiotoko, Chief Information Officer and Global IS/IT said: “With a augmenting series of new projects globally, IT’s significance has turn even some-more essential. Based on a tellurian IS/IT strategy, Nissan will concentration on joining Management with IT to boost a business value IT delivers for NISSAN.”

HPE is a Nissan tellurian IT partner and is gratified to support Nissan’s VITESSE initiative, that aims to accelerate a company’s expansion in a tellurian market.

“Siemens is during a forefront of enabling a digitalization of a tellurian production industry, and we are unapproachable to work with partners like HPE to assistance support this critical beginning during Nissan,” pronounced Chuck Grindstaff, boss CEO, Siemens PLM Software, a business section of a Siemens Digital Factory Division. “As a outcome of Nissan’s expostulate and initiative, their successful VDI resolution serves as a good instance for a rest of a tellurian automotive attention and beyond.”

Nissan will aim to connect car pattern expansion globally to urge capability and government efficiency.
