The migration reflects Envenio’s goal to make computational fluid dynamics more accessible, with EXN/Aero addressing many of the long-time restrictions and limitations faced by engineers, replacing inflexible and expensive CFD licenses with a pay-as-you-go model in the cloud.
“We are very excited to have migrated EXN/Aero to Google, meaning users will be able to access our supercomputing platform to build, compute, analyze, and scale simulations in the Google Cloud Platform,” says Scott Walton, VP at Envenio.
One of the key advantages of CFD on the Google Cloud Platform, is the ability for consultants to enjoy a significant reduction in simulation solve time and to list end-to-end CFD services in their marketing and proposal materials.
Financial restrictions are particularly common with CFD software, and operating a CFD tool on more than 4 CPUs can become extremely costly. With some vendors charging over $1,000 per additional core, and some on-demand vendors still requiring annual licenses, accessing EXN/Aero on the Google Cloud Platform is a ‘cash flow friendly’ way to access high performance resources on a truly pay-monthly basis.
More accessible CFD software also means engineers can access simulation tools and post-processing tools, expand their service offering to their own clients, and keep up with the competition. Shorter turn-around times on simulations, the ability to upsell existing clients on larger or more complex models, and the ability to provision compute resources on the fly to scale with customer demands, are all advantages provided by a cloud-hosted solution.
Google Cloud Platform is used by many of the world’s leading brands due to their commitment to integrity and security, as well as an ongoing commitment to improving and expanding the service offering.
“As you’d expect from a leading digital innovator, Google Cloud Platform is secure, high-performance, global and cost-effective, and we are excited about how this partnership will benefit engineers and make accessing CFD easier and more affordable,” Scott adds.
