A team using Simcenter X cloud simulation software to run a CFD simulation in the cloud on a virtual HPC cluster in the cloud and monitor progress live.

Simcenter X

On-demand cloud HPC

Run computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations on cloud high-performance computing (HPC) using Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure, configured and managed by Siemens, with no additional setup needed.

Virtual HPC cluster in the cloud

Simcenter X gives you instant access to an on-demand HPC cluster in the cloud with unlimited capacity. Use it to go faster, model more complexity, and explore multiple designs at the same time with Simcenter STAR-CCM+.

Scale up quickly and easily
Simcenter X delivers an accessible, flexible and scalable solution, delivering cloud HPC as a turn-key solution. Run your simulations on optimized, preconfigured AWS infrastructure, with no additional set-up or expertise needed.

It takes just two clicks to start running a simulation in the cloud on a virtual HPC cluster, without leaving the Simcenter STAR-CCM+ environment. Monitor jobs using a web browser on any device and view plots and scenes live.

Reduce resource waste
On-premise HPC resources require IT expertise to configure and manage and involve significant capital investment. Once installed, their fixed capacity limits flexibility, often creating a bottleneck or leaving resources sitting idle. Cloud HPC with Simcenter X lets you make HPC an operating expense (OPEX) and be more agile as your workload varies.

Leverage flexibility
Use it instead of owning and managing hardware on-premise, or easily access additional cloud HPC capacity during busy periods. Consume as much or as little as you need with pay-as-you-use pricing and no limits on the number of concurrent sessions or simulation tool licenses.
