Engineers are dealing with increasingly complex simulations and are working with tight deadlines. These professionals require powerful engineering simulation and 3D design software that are fast and scalable. Ansys is an established multiphysics engineering simulation software for product designing, testing, and operation that fulfills these requirements. It helps engineers improve operational efficiency, increase productivity, and reduce the number of physical prototypes with its powerful simulation capabilities. In this article, we will explore how product development teams can take advantage of high-performance computing (HPC) with the Ansys cloud service.
What Are the Advantages of Ansys Cloud High-Performance Computing?
Ansys cloud HPC allows customers to run a greater number of complex simulations faster. Here are some key advantages of hosting Ansys in the cloud.
Eliminates Compute Capacity Constraints
Engineers tend to limit the size and detail of their models when they have limited computing power. This could result in compromises in product quality. With Ansys cloud hosting, it is possible to address occasional end-user burst capacity or even full outsource HPC. There is a demonstrably better return on investment while running simulations on new generation HPC hardware due to improved simulation speeds.
Eliminates Large File Transfers
Hosting Ansys in the cloud with virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) ensures that large files do not have to be transferred across networks. With this model of distribution, engineers will be able to access HPC hardware with greater ease and post-process the simulation results interactively using any device. This ability to share results helps in better collaboration and saves time.
Minimizes Strain on IT Resources
Sizing, integrating, provisioning, and supporting HPC clusters can be challenging for most organizations. With cloud hosting, these backend tasks are outsourced to the service provider. Organizations will not have to worry about the Ansys HPC clusters as the cloud service provider (CSP) can offer turnkey solutions that are optimized and preconfigured for running Ansys workloads.
Simplifies Deployment and Management
Engineers should focus on running their simulations rather than wasting time worrying about procuring the right software license and appropriate hardware. With flexible licensing options for Ansys cloud hosting, customers can pay for what they use by opting for elastic licensing to meet fluctuating capacity demands.
Improves Data Security
Unlike on-premises clusters that are prone to failure if not managed properly, Ansys cloud service is much safer and more dependable. This is because the capabilities of most CSPs in terms of economy of scale, redundancy, technology, expertise, encryption, and anti-virus programs are better than those of an average business.
Migrating Ansys to the cloud reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) as it saves time with instant access to greater compute resources. Additionally, resources can be scaled on-demand to increase simulation throughput and accuracy by eliminating the need to buy additional hardware resources.
