Ansys & AWS to Transform Cloud-Based Simulations
Ansys has just announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), designed to transform cloud-based engineering simulations by making simulation workloads more user-friendly, while offering scalability and flexibility with easy access to Ansys products and storage solutions.
As announced, the new collaboration is built on a longstanding relationship and formed with an expectation of providing a browser-based, location-independent solution for Ansys customers – which include product developers, designers, and engineers, that have traditionally utilized on-prem HPC resources.
“This is an exciting opportunity to combine the forces of Ansys and AWS to help customers innovate faster. This work will make it easier for customers to use Ansys’s comprehensive portfolio of engineering simulation products leveraging a secure, reliable and agile cloud. It will remove barriers to scale globally for customers and they can perform more simulations and they can do so earlier in the design process,” said Bill Vass, Vice President of Engineering at AWS.
Ansys stated that leveraging connected ecosystem applications in a cloud environment along with its Gateway powered by AWS, customers will be able to access Ansys applications, manage and advance their complete CAE, EDA, and Computer-aided design (CAD) product development in the cloud by leveraging scale, flexibility, elasticity, and global reach of AWS.
“Cloud computing accelerates and expands simulation by removing hardware barriers and computer restrictions, streamlining all processes and workflows. By leveraging Ansys Gateway powered by AWS customers will have a stronger, three-layered approach to boost their innovation and efficiency by doing more simulations, faster, and with more flexibility on AWS,” said Shane Emswiler, Senior Vice President of Products at Ansys.
According to Ansys, its Ansys Gateway powered by AWS will be available in the AWS Marketplace and will be accessible from anywhere with a web browser as well as providing customers with an easier access to their existing Ansys software applications.
