Cloud computing enables engineers to apply the power of high-performance computing (HPC) to their most complex simulations to save time and improve accuracy.
Engineers are frequently tasked with reducing the time required to complete product design cycles while producing more reliable and innovative products. Companies are also trying to reduce costs and work collaboratively with globally dispersed team. But delivering better, more reliable products in less time with a smaller budget is a difficult objective — and engineers in all sectors are feeling the pressure.
Cloud computing promises to help engineers meet these challenges by delivering high-performance computing (HPC) power when and where it’s needed. Now, engineers can simulate complex designs without sacrificing accuracy or project timelines, no matter where they are or what on-premises capabilities they have access to.
With the right cloud computing solution, even small businesses and start-ups can afford to access high-performance computing to increase their productivity and innovation.
Support a Remote Workforce
Because the cloud avoids the need for powerful workstations on-premises, your team can work at their best from anywhere.
Automatic Software and Hardware Upgrades
With cloud computing solutions, you always have access to the latest, most advanced hardware and software.
Everyone on the project can access submitted jobs, allowing easy collaboration within and across teams.
Flexible, On-Demand Access and Pricing
Cloud computing lets you access the most powerful technology available without needing to pay for it when it isn’t in use.
Ansys Cloud makes it seamless, easy and cost-effective to harness the power of the world’s best simulation software on an as-needed basis — enabling fast, flexible access to both simulation software and the processing capabilities needed to run large simulations.
With cloud computing, you can prepare simulation models on your desktop and submit them to high-powered machines for processing without reducing the model size to meet desktop constraints. Ansys Cloud solutions display 3D results directly in your browser without downloading all the heavy data to deliver performance, no matter your on-premises set up.
As manufacturing demands become ever more complex, access to HPC will soon be a requirement – not a luxury.
“Ansys Cloud enables Hytech Ingenieria to calculate large and complicated geometries within hours, instead of days or weeks – resulting in significant time savings.”

Product innovation is exploding across industries, but new technology requires more complex simulations. The demands of these more sophisticated simulations can easily outstrip the on-premises capabilities of most businesses. In order to stay competitive, you need to make a huge investment in expensive, high-powered workstations and a space to house them – or you need cloud computing.
The cloud offers access to both the hardware you need to execute complex simulations and the software that runs them. All of it is available on demand so you can make the most of your in-house capabilities and support them with high-powered computing as needed. Flexibility and access to powerful computing keeps you competitive in a rapidly evolving technology market.
While almost half of cloud users involved in engineering solutions are at large companies, small and medium companies can benefit from the same technology to compete directly with bigger players. Small businesses are especially aggressive in adopting cloud simulation for this reason.
Surveys of cloud computing users indicate that as many as 40% of respondents see lower overall costs and 33% see lower maintenance costs.
81% of survey respondents say they use cloud-based simulation tools to reduce development time and get products to market faster.
Cost-effective, on-demand licensing makes it easy to scale operations up and down in response to changes in the market or product development needs.
