Siemens Extends Access to Advanced Simulation With Simcenter Cloud HPC

Simcenter Cloud HPC provides instant on, rapidly scalable cloud-based high performance computing (HPC) for complex simulation studies, hosted on AWS.

Simcenter Cloud HPC provides instant on, rapidly scalable cloud-based high performance computing (HPC) for complex simulation studies, hosted on AWS.

Siemens Digital Industries Software has added scalable, on-demand, high performance simulation capabilities to Siemens Xcelerator as a Service (XaaS) with the launch of Simcenter Cloud HPC software. As part of the ongoing collaboration between Siemens and Amazon Web Services (AWS), the new service is hosted on AWS, optimized for Simcenter solver technologies, and managed by Siemens.

This service can help reduce the costs linked to on-premise high performance computing (HPC) deployment, allowing organizations of all sizes to access advanced simulation, gain insight into product performance, and drive informed engineering decision-making.

“Having access to sufficient HPC resources is essential to get the most value from engineering simulation and this issue is a constant challenge for engineering departments with evolving needs,” says Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, senior vice president, Simulation and Test Solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “By providing flexible, accessible and scalable HPC resources in the cloud, we are offering our customers a new freedom to rapidly scale up or down as their business requires, avoiding locked capital and paying only for what is used.”

Simcenter Cloud HPC is accessible from the desktop simulation tool with no additional configuration needed. It provides immediate access to compute capacity, avoiding the complexity and cost of accessing third-party cloud services. Organizations of any size can benefit from instant-on HPC availability.

For small and medium-sized businesses that are hampered by the cost of on-premise heavy compute hardware, this solution can help them  be more competitive in the industry. Larger enterprises can supplement on-premise clusters with near-unlimited cloud compute when extra capacity is needed to meet deadlines. This opportunity allows for capital expenditure (CapEx) savings by reducing the amount of long-term investment needed for HPC.

“We continue to expand  access to AWS's extensive HPC resources including  Amazon EC2 instances that use the latest generation of processors, and Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) which allows customers to run applications requiring high-levels of inter-node communications at scale on AWS. Through these resources, our customers are able to meet the engineering challenges of tomorrow, and accelerate innovation,” says Ian Colle, general manager Batch Computing and HPC at AWS.
