Windows 7 and Windows HPC Server 2008: Your Complete Solution for Engineering Productivity
It doesn't get much easier. With ANSYS 14.0 fully supported on Windows 7, we've got you covered from desktop to compute cluster, for complete engineering productivity in a Windows environment.
The latest Windows 7 desktop workstations provide outstanding interactive response for pre- and post-processing in ANSYS Workbench, combined with impressive computational power that expands the reach of desktop simulation. Scale up to a cluster running Windows HPC Server 2008, and you'll be able to consider more detailed and accurate simulations or study a range of design ideas or operating conditions. Either way, you can leverage your existing Windows expertise and IT infrastructure, and maximize the return on your investment in simulation.

Your computing infrastructure is a strategic enabler that can increase the value you derive from your investment in engineering simulation. With the right combination of desktop and cluster computing, you can perform more detailed and accurate simulations that give you greatly enhanced insight into the behavior of your product or process. You'll also be able to explore multiple operating conditions and optimize your designs, while meeting time to market goals.
What is the value of high-fidelity insight that helps you deliver innovative products while avoiding troubleshooting delays, product failure, or warranty costs? Let our customers explain:
What can you accomplish on a multi-core Windows workstation? How much more could you accomplish using a cluster? ANSYS benchmarks document the outstanding speedup you can achieve using parallel processing. Whether you run on 8 cores on the desktop or 80 (or more) cores on a cluster, parallel processing allows you to solve problems that were previously impossible to tackle.
"ANSYS has definitely benefitted from our work at the Microsoft Performance Lab. Working with the Microsoft team, we identified and resolved software bottlenecks, tuned various system-specific settings, and generated clear performance gains of up to 20% for our mechanical and fluids solvers. We also improved our ability to take advantage of key features in Windows HPC Server 2008 and gained more insight with the Microsoft development tools."

Whatever your simulation need, ANSYS HPC provides the parallel processing capability you need to accelerate time-to-solution and solve your highest fidelity problems. The full portfolio of ANSYS solvers – including ANSYS Mechanical, ANSYS AUTODYN, ANSYS FLUENT, ANSYS CFX, ANSYS Icepak, and ANSYS POLYFLOW, - all use the same ANSYS HPC licenses to execute in parallel. Buy once, deploy once, and maximize the value of your investment in simulation.
High-fidelity modeling (including more geometric detail, larger systems, and more complex physics) results in enhanced engineering insight that can’t be gained any other way. This detailed understanding can yield enormous business benefit – revealing design issues that might lead to product failure or troubleshooting delays. Using HPC to understand detailed product behavior, you can gain confidence in your design and ensure that your product will succeed in the market.
ANSYS HPC increases throughput by speeding up turn-around time for individual simulations. This enables you to consider multiple design ideas and make the right design decisions early in the design cycle. Using ANSYS HPC you therefore make your engineering staff, and your product development process, more productive and efficient. With ANSYS HPC, you won’t be waiting for answers or making design decisions based on single point solutions.
