Ansys announced the launch of Ansys Access on Microsoft Azure, allowing users to deploy pre-configured Ansys products on Azure cloud platform infrastructure. Available May 30, 2024, customers using their own Azure subscription with existing Ansys licenses can benefit from a more scalable, secure, and cost-effective approach to running HPC simulations in the cloud, the company says.

Ansys Access on Azure addresses cloud-based simulation challenges by delivering pre-tested and configured Ansys applications updated with each major release and aligned to a curated set of recommended virtual machines (VMs) and HPC infrastructure, according to a press release. This simplifies implementation for IT departments, giving them better control over cost while also empowering engineers to unlock the benefits of the high-performance Azure VMs, the company says.

“At Movares we use Ansys Mechanical for extensive fatigue calculations on steel bridges,” said Roelof Oppenhuis, project manager, Movares Europe. “With Ansys Access on Microsoft Azure, we can further explore industry-leading solutions and optimal infrastructure to run our complex, critical calculations in the most efficient way. In addition to the user-friendly setup environment, the Ansys Elite Channel Partner Infinite and Ansys support teams are quick to respond and resolve any issues.”

“As computer-aided engineering moves farther into cloud computing, it is crucial that Ansys customers have the right tools to not only keep pace with this transition, but to thrive in this new era,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “With Ansys Access on Microsoft Azure, IT managers can use existing or new services and licenses in one place, keeping deployment costs low. This reduction in administrative and financial obligations opens the door for increased productivity and ultimately, more innovation.”

“This collaboration not only simplifies implementation for IT departments but also empowers engineers to unlock the advantages of high-performance Microsoft Azure virtual machines, enhancing engineering and IT workflows. As cloud computing gains traction across industries, Ansys Access on Azure makes it easier for organizations to scale simulations and accelerate product innovation,” said Dominik Wee, Corporate Vice President, Manufacturing and Mobility, Microsoft.

Ansys announced development of the Azure partnership last year.
