ANSYS Enhances Enterprise Cloud HPC
Offering with Cycle Computing
February 6, 2017
has chosen a CycleCloud product to spearhead the orchestration and
management behind the ANSYS Enterprise Cloud. ANSYS is a leader in
engineering simulation bringing clarity and insight to its customers'
most complex design challenges.
Many ANSYS customers require simulation workloads to be migrated to the
cloud, as customers look to leverage dynamic cloud capacity to
accelerate time to result, shorten product development cycles and reduce
costs. ANSYS Enterprise Cloud, an enterprise-level engineering
simulation platform, delivered on the Amazon Web Service (AWS) global
platform using the CycleCloud software platform, enables this migration,
including secure storage and data management and access to resources for
interactive and batch execution that scales on demand for
virtual-private cloud (VPC) for enterprise simulation.
"Our collaboration with Cycle Computing enables the ANSYS Enterprise
Cloud to meet the elastic capacity and security requirements of
enterprise customers," said Ray Milhem, vice president, Enterprise
Solutions and Cloud, ANSYS. "CycleCloud has run some of the largest
Cloud Big Compute and Cloud HPC projects in the world, and we are
excited to bring their associated, proven software capability to our
global customers with the ANSYS Enterprise Cloud."
Computing's CycleCloud will optimize ANSYS Enterprise Cloud with the
orchestration of cloud HPC clusters with ANSYS software applications in
the cloud, ensuring optimal AWS Spot instance usage, and ensuring that
appropriate resources are used for the right amount of time in the ANSYS
"Our CycleCloud software brings over one hundred and sixty engineering
years of development, and of course, the history of managing Cloud Big
Compute and Cloud HPC environments for some of the world's most
innovative organizations," said Jason Stowe, CEO, Cycle Computing. "We
are excited to be chosen by ANSYS to orchestrate secure Big Compute
cloud infrastructure, optimize costs, and help enable disruptive time to
result for its Enterprise Cloud clients."
