After going public, electric vehicle manufacturer Canoo was faced with tighter budgets and stricter production deadlines. To address these new challenges, Canoo teamed up with Rescale, AWS, and AMD. By leveraging Rescale solutions on Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances, powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors, Canoo was able to address their high-performance computing (HPC) needs more cost-effectively.

Join the webinar with Rescale, AWS, and AMD to discover how to achieve exceptional price-performance for compute-intensive HPC workloads.

What we'll cover in this webinar:

  • How Rescale, AWS, and AMD solutions are helping accelerate automotive product development
  • How AMD EPYC™-powered Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances deliver outstanding price-performance for HPC workloads
  • How a built-for-the-cloud approach to HPC differs from on-premises systems
