Simulation and HPC in the cloud

Today, simulation is a key part of product engineering. It enables engineers to rapidly and cost-effectively test and validate their designs. Today, most companies perform their engineering simulation on custom-built on-premises compute clusters. Finding that on-premises clusters are limiting in many ways, many companies are actively migrating their engineering simulation workloads to the cloud. The cloud provides access to vast computing resources on demand, providing elasticity and lower cost, enabling simulation engineers to run more simulations quicker, thus expediting the innovation process. This talk presents insights into how to scale simulations in the cloud, along with customer case studies.
