Is High-Performance Computing Right for Your Company?

November 28, 2023 Adam Weaver

High-Performance Computing, or HPC, can be a hazy topic. While people who work with simulation software may be familiar with it, many incorrectly think that it is only for large companies, huge R&D departments, or engineers who drive simulations all day every day. HPC can, in fact, bring significant benefits to companies of all sizes.

To learn the many ways HPC can make a company more competitive and determine if an investment in HPC is right for your company, watch the recording of our 60-minute webinar, Ansys High-Performance Computing Overview.

During the webinar, we make and prove four assertions:

  1. HPC doesn’t have to be a giant leap. Small, effective steps can be taken; rent options are available
  2. Both cost and time savings can be reasonably predicted. Parallel scalability follows predictable trends, and Cloud and licensing costs can be calculated based on simulation time
  3. The shift to HPC can open new ways of thinking about simulation. Used throughout the design process, engineers can explore parametrics and optimization methods
  4. The investment can be approved by management. We help companies understand if HPC makes sense for them and, if so, help put together a justification presentation for management

We prove those assertions through four major topics:

  1. Parallel Scalability – Understanding the factors that influence speed and efficiency
  2. Adapted Methodologies – Using HPC in many different areas
  3. Value of HPC Solutions – Predicting the ROI of increased simulation output
  4. Rent vs Own vs Both – Evaluating the balance between Cloud and on-premises options
