Sahara LogoSahara Force India is pleased to announce the beginning of a new technical partnership with Univa, a leading provider of automation data management software for large scale computational projects.

Sahara Force India will make use of ‘Univa Grid Engine’, Univa’s core product. Grid Engine is the most widely used resource management platform by industry across the globe. This workload-optimisation solution allows organisations to run large quantities of mission-critical, compute-intensive applications faster, more efficiently, and with lower overall costs.

Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Operating Officer of Sahara Force India: “It’s fantastic to begin a technical partnership with Univa and benefit from their knowledge of data management software. Almost every area of the team relies on simulation tools to help develop the car and it is here that our relationship with Univa will be of great value. We welcome them to the team and look forward to shared success going forward.”

Gary Tyreman, President and CEO of Univa Corporation: “Formula One epitomises leading-edge design and awe-inspiring innovations where mankind leverages high-performance technologies to excel and achieve what was once considered impossible. Sahara Force India uses Grid Engine software to support the tight timelines of their engineering design simulations and continual efforts to improve racing performance. Univa is proud to become an official technical partner and we look forward to celebrating a successful first weekend together at the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix.”
