Run simulations on world-class HPC infrastructure
In industries such as automotive, consumer goods and discrete manufacturing, engineers use simulation-driven design processes to reduce time to market. They need the ability to analyse and simulate complex high-fidelity models without having to build, manage or maintain capital-intensive infrastructure. Azure provides HPC computing on demand, helping reduce the cost and effort needed to run massive computational models.
Big Compute can help solve a variety of simulation problems, such as:
- Automotive crash simulation
- Electromagnetic simulation
- Vehicle dynamics
- Stress analysis
- Computation fluid dynamics, fluid flow and aerodynamics
- Metal forming and extrusion
- NVH (noise vibration harshness and durability/fatigue)
- Consumer device drop test and durability
Stay focused on design
Big Compute gives you the tools and resources you need to solve complex simulation problems. You can validate designs and use statistical modelling techniques such as design of experiments (DOE) and optimisation to run hundreds or even thousands of simulations using high-fidelity models. With high-end compute and storage capabilities readily available on demand, you can run any number of simulations to find optimal design solutions. Use the speed and performance of Azure to quickly hone in on the right design. Create exciting products, reduce time to market and drive the design instead of merely validating design choices.
Use enterprise-ready capabilities
Burst to Azure for additional power or run your simulations entirely in the cloud. Build a cluster in the cloud to run new workloads or add capacity in Azure when you need it. Use your existing job schedulers and access compute capacity on demand. Azure provides a secure platform to run the applications you want in the cloud on operating systems such as Windows and Linux.
Easily deliver software as a service
Whether you're an ISV, systems integrator or enterprise organisation, Big Compute gives you a rich set of tools to build a software-as-a-service offering that delivers superior value to your users. Give them easy access to your solution and reach new customers. Focus on your core business and reduce expenditure in infrastructure management and middleware.
Expand your reach
To expand your reach to businesses of any size around the world, you can offer your application in Azure Marketplace. Users benefit from application availability, fast deployment and an integrated infrastructure for a consistent experience.

HPC Pack provides you with deployment, administration, job scheduling and monitoring tools for your cluster environment. It also gives you the ability to burst from on-premises clusters to Azure when additional capacity is needed. Take a look at the HPC Pack for Infrastructure Services image in the Azure Marketplace.
Microsoft understands big-compute needs for the simulation industry and provides great Azure support for HPC-centric applications. We're looking forward to using Azure to help customers use large-scale cloud computing for LS-DYNA simulation-based product development.Learn more about d3VIEW on Azure
At UberCloud, we develop solutions for technical computing in the cloud. We believe end users should have the opportunity to pick their favourite cloud and their favourite technical computing code; the rest should just automatically work. With Microsoft Azure, we've been able to do just that.Test OpenFOAM with TheUberCloud image in the Azure gallery
