Find your CAE codes on UberCloud
Get instant access to your favorite CAE software and pick a license option that works for you: short-term, on-demand, or use your own.
Design products faster by running ANSYS Fluent, CD-adapco STAR-CCM+, COMSOL Multiphysics, Dassault/SIMULIA Abaqus, NUMECA FINE/Marine, and many more codes on powerful remote and secure infrastructure in the cloud. Nothing to install, nothing to setup – simply ready to use, business as usual.
Our worldwide 24×7 expert support gives you total peace of mind. UberCloud lowers your total cost of ownership by charging you for only the resources you use.
Stay in control with a fully interactive desktop
If you use a sophisticated simulation package you may be asking, “what does simulation in the cloud look like? Do I have to change the way I work, in the cloud”?
This is a real concern, when it comes to cloud. You’ve spent years learning the nuances of your favorite engineering simulation software. You don’t want to have to learn a new interface nor a complex on-boarding process just to benefit from the cloud.
UberCloud’s simulation solution is designed to look and feel exactly like your desktop workstation. Sign on from your web browser, interact with the desktop, customize it to your liking and connect to your own data sources to import your models. Then launch your solver and submit your jobs, and work the same as you would on your workstation.
Boost resource utilization dramatically
Your IT team plans for peak compute capacity. If you absolutely must have a 256core compute cluster 3 times a year, then you own it for the whole year. This is like building your own 20 bedroom house to accommodate holiday guests just once a year!
Fortunately, UberCloud has you covered! You now have the scalability and elasticity of the cloud at your disposal so you don’t have to build resources for peaks. Just buy a reasonable workstation for average daily use and burst to the cloud for all your peaks.
In additional to the infinite compute capacity, the cloud gives you access to the latest technology. No more waiting for your workstation or on-premise server to be refreshed every 3 years – the fastest Intel processors and the most powerful GPUs are available to you as they are released.
Fitting IT to the specific needs of your problem (and not vice-versa) is the new way of doing business, and the way to out-innovate your competition.
Build better and finer meshes
Engineers often compromise the quality of their simulations for lack of the right tools. You use simulation tools to model the physical world. Along the way, you make choices that try to better capture this world.
Often, these choices are made due to the limits of your system. If your workstation has 12 cpu cores and 64GB of memory, you know that certain mesh qualities are beyond its capabilities. So you settle. But these choices can accumulate over time until they finally erode your confidence in the results. After all, if you know you used a coarser mesh than you would have liked, that automatically raises your doubts and the error-rate.
With UberCloud, you now have the unlimited power of the cloud at your disposal so you don’t have to compromise quality. You can specify the models the way you want to, and run the simulations the way you want to. You are no longer forced to settle for low fidelity models and coarse meshes just so your runs complete in a reasonable amount of time. You now have confidence in the results.
UberCloud works with your security and compliance experts to pick your resources, whether it be a cloud provider or your own corporate datacenter. With this flexibility, you can now get both great performance and be in control of your information assets.
Data encryption: UberCloud enables encryption for data transfers, shell access, remote desktop access, VPN and data storage. You control your data encryption requirements to keep your data secure and private.
Logical Security: UberCloud, runs in private compute environments where your data is stored in your Cloud storage account, compute resources are dedicated and not shared. UberCloud containers are deleted when your processing is complete.
Physical security: UberCloud allows you to deploy on professionally managed Clouds, with stringent physical security controls for their assets. Some of these physical security controls are: biometric entry authentication and armed guards.
Fine grained access control: UberCloud provides full flexibility in defining your access control requirements. Your IT organization defines the right set of firewall rules, authentication methods, and which employee gets access to which resources.
Additional compliance and governance requirements: We understand your need to know that your data is secure, we’ve been there. UberCloud leadership team is experienced in regulated industries and we are ready to support your additional compliance requirements.
Peace of mind with support
Here’s a sobering statistics: Cloud has been mainstream for over a decade, yet less than 5% of HPC workloads are in the cloud!
CHALLENGE #1: Cloud is designed for self-service. But sometimes you need help getting started.
A key benefit of the cloud is self-service. Often, users who are tired of unresponsive IT departments take matters into her own hands and sign up for cloud. But this is not a realistic, long-term scenario in any reasonable size company doing CAE. Multiple stakeholders need to be involved including the engineers, the IT department, the cloud providers, the software vendor etc. You need an experienced partner that can guide you in this journey.
CHALLENGE #2: Cloud exels at generic. HPC and CAE need specialization.
Clouds are built to cater the widest selection of customers. Most clouds are efficient at simple machine configurations. This doesn’t work at all for CAE and HPC. You need someone with CAE and HPC expertise and who speaks your language. UberCloud brings decades of CAE and Cloud expertise to help you navigate MPI, GPUs, InfiniBand etc. in the cloud.
CHALLENGE #3: Cloud gets you Hardware. You need Software too!
Clouds are an efficient way to get infrastructure on demand. Scalability and elasticity are very desirable cloud features. But you need application software as well. UberCloud has partnerships with CAE software vendors such as ANSYS, CD-adapco / Siemens, COMSOL, NUMECA, SIMULIA, and MATLAB. We make these software packages available in the cloud.
