Numeca Migrates CFD to the UberCloud with Advania

CFD solution company Numeca International is expanding HPC offerings to run in the cloud and on demand. With help from Advania and the UberCloud, this capability will make it easer for Numeca customers to tackle complex calculations and improve their flexibility to test them on demand, all while providing them with an HPC environment that accelerates their computing capacity. “Until recently it was my firm belief that cloud computing for engineering applications was one of the next big challenges we had to solve,” says Professor Charles Hirsch, President and founder of NUMECA International, and a world-renowned expert on Computational Fluid Dynamics. “But when we came across UberCloud’s new application HPC container technology and containerized all our CFD software packages, we were surprised about the ease of use and access to any computing system on demand. We were also impressed by the flexibility of Advania to be able to respond to our immediate and future needs, by providing an HPC structure fit to our client’s demands.”
