Harnessing the Power of Cloud Computing 

Delivering flexible and on-demand access to high-performance computing (HPC) resources via cloud computing takes engineering simulation to the next level.   

Unlock the Power of the Cloud

Cloud computing has a significant role in advancing the latest transformative technological trends, from artificial intelligence (AI) to electrification. It promises to help engineers meet today’s challenges by delivering high-performance computing (HPC) power when and where it’s needed — without the need to invest in costly infrastructure.   

By taking advantage of cloud-based computational power, complex designs can be simulated without sacrificing accuracy or project timelines. With cloud computing, limitations of on-premises computing capabilities are removed and globally dispersed teams can work in a more collaborative and effective manner.

With the right cloud computing solution, even small businesses and startups can increase their productivity and innovation through affordable access to HPC.

Survey Reports Substantial Returns on Investment in HPC for Engineering Simulation Applications

The survey, based on 71 projects involving Ansys simulation solutions, shows that on average $151.90 in revenue were generated per dollar of HPC invested. In addition, $34.90 of profit (or cost savings) were generated per dollar of HPC invested, according to the survey. Of particular interest is the contrast in profits generated for projects that used HPC primarily on-premises versus HPC used primarily in the cloud.  

New Survey Reveals that More Companies Are Turning to the Cloud

The demand for greater computing resources to facilitate simulations has led to the increased adoption of cloud-based high-performance computing (HPC) within the engineering sector. Engineers using HPC typically use more compute cores now than in 2020. Those using 13 or more cores for parallel processing increased from 44% to 50%.

Setting the Future in Motion

Cloud computing levels the playing field by avoiding the need for robust and expensive workstations on-premises, ensuring teams can work at their best from any location. Everyone on the project can access submitted jobs, enabling easy collaboration within and across teams. With cloud computing solutions, you can always access the latest, most advanced hardware and software without paying for it when it isn’t in use. Industry leaders are turning to cloud-based solutions to increase simulation throughput.
