PITTSBURGHOct. 31, 2022 — Today Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) announced the availability of Ansys Gateway powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), which allows customers to use Ansys products in one workspace on AWS – designed to simplify access to scalable engineering solutions. Ansys Gateway powered by AWS is available in AWS Marketplace and makes it possible for customers to  access, subscribe and configure Ansys applications from a single location.

Ansys Gateway powered by AWS features on-demand access to Ansys applications and high-performance computing (HPC) resources on the cloud as part of a strategy designed to make simulation software more affordable. Customers can manage and control computer-aided design (CAD) / computer-aided engineering (CAE) cloud consumption and costs on AWS while taking advantage of the scalable hardware and compute capacity. This offering provides seamless cloud support for both Ansys applications as well as other popular CAE/CAD software. With control over their hybrid architecture, customers can bring their own licenses to Ansys Gateway powered by AWS and easily manage user access, permissions, data and security.

With Ansys Gateway powered by AWS, customers gain instant, intuitive access to Ansys applications. In addition to reducing time to market, customers can reduce costs by paying for cloud resources only when they are being used.

“We were surprised by how easy and seamless it is to switch from our internal cluster to the cloud with Ansys Gateway powered by AWS,” said Steve Collie, aerodynamics coordinator at Emirates Team New Zealand. “We can quickly set up a workstation or cluster and select the best hardware. We can replace our hardware every day if we want, instead of replacing physical resources every four years. It’s fast and intuitive to switch back and forth from cluster to cloud as our needs change.”

“Our goal at Ansys has always been to make simulation accessible to as many startups, students and businesses – large and small – as possible. Providing easy, affordable access to Ansys’ solutions makes greater innovation and efficiency possible for all of our customers,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “By working with AWS, we are able to allow broader access to HPC by bringing down the traditional hardware barriers that have limited innovation for many of our customers.”

“Working together with the company, we are excited about the launch of Ansys Gateway powered by AWS,” said Bill Vass, vice president of engineering at AWS. “Now, customers can access and deploy Ansys’ portfolio through AWS, helping customers remove barriers to scale globally, perform more simulations, and innovate faster.”
