As the world’s top OEMs can attest, simulation products are not created equal. Accurate, reliable, real-world results require a validated, proven simulation software package with years of research and development invested. These premier simulations demand significant computational hardware resources that are difficult and expensive to maintain.


Simulation has become an

absolute necessity to remain competitive in product design and engineering. To best optimize designs and contain development costs, engineers worldwide seek access to premium simulation software which, until now, may have been too costly to deploy internally.



Challenges hindering full simulation deployment at many companies:

IT costs for HPC simulation environments are hard to predict

  • Difficult for engineering companies to build or scale HPC simulation environments that can meet unpredictable needs
  • Lack of automation and job control for simulations
  • Fragmented project teams
  • Human resource limitations; more simulations with less staff
