ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack
The ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack license amplifies the available licenses for individual applications (pre-processing, meshing, solve, HPC, post-processing), enabling simultaneous execution of multiple design points while consuming just one set of application licenses.
Following the structure of the ANSYS HPC Pack license used to deliver scalable parallel processing for single jobs, the ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack license scales the user’s ability to run multiple simultaneous parametric analyses. One ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack license enables up to four simultaneous design evaluations – with no additional application licenses required.
Each additional HPC Parametric Pack license doubles the number of designs that can be evaluated simultaneously, up to 64 parametric jobs when five parametric pack licenses are invoked.
The following table lists ANSYS products that are amplified by the ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack license.

ANSYS Extended Meshing (including ANSYS TGrid, ANSYS ICEM CFD functionality)
|ANSYS Polyflow, ANSYS Polyflow solver|
Other ANSYS products can participate in a simultaneous design-point update, provided that sufficient individual application licenses are available during the simultaneous execution of the multiple design points.
ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack licensing treats high-performance computing licensing in exactly the same way it treats solver licenses, meshing licenses and other base application licenses invoked by the parametrically linked design study. You can reserve the number of parallel processes to be used for one design point, and that amount of parallel processing will become available for execution of all simultaneous design points.
