Azure high-performance computing (HPC) for manufacturing

Rapidly iterate on product design to reduce time to market and improve product quality with scalable and highly secure on-demand infrastructure. ​

Accelerate the pace of innovation while lowering product development costs with pay-as-you-go CPUs and GPUs.

Manufacturing HPC scenarios

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Dramatically accelerate your time-to-result by simulating all of the relevant physics that influence the real-world performance of your product by using the CFD solver of your choice on Azure.
