Run simulations at scale on AWS
Run simulations at scale on AWS
Improve product designs and rapidly develop viable prototypes
CFD is the mainstay for engineers to improve product designs and rapidly develop viable prototypes

By running CFD applications in the cloud, users can replace large upfront costs with flexible payments that only charge for the simulations actually run. Fluctuating demand makes CFD ideal for cloud computing and on AWS’ scalable cloud infrastructure, engineers get the option to configure their infrastructure to match their application needs.

Best practices for CFD on AWS

The scalable nature and variable demand of CFD workloads makes them well suited for a cloud computing environment. Learn about the best practices for running computational fluid dynamics workloads on AWS. Use this document to learn more about AWS services and the related quick start tools that simplify getting started with running CFD simulations on AWS. CFD workloads are typically MPI-based, tightly coupled workloads relying on a large number of cores across many nodes. Learn how AWS has network options that support extreme scalability and short turn-around time for these workloads.

How AWS' platform takes your CFD to the next level

The flexibility of the AWS platform means that whatever your CFD workload, from complex fluid flows involving turbulence to acoustics and electromagnetics, there’s an Amazon EC2 instance to suit. Intel Xeon processor-based instances such as C5n with Elastic Fabric Adaptor (EFA) ensure that up to 100 Gbps of bandwidth is made available for complex simulations. Flexible configuration and virtually unlimited scalability enable you to grow and shrink your infrastructure as your CFD workloads demand.

Enhancing CFD with Elastic Fabric Adapter

EFA is a network interface that relies on a custom-built OS-bypass technique to speed up communication between compute instances. It enables customers to scale their applications to tens of thousands of CPU cores. Advances in CFD algorithms enable engineers to simulate increasingly complex flows, and HPC helps reduce turn-around times. With EFA, design engineers can now scale out their simulation jobs to experiment with more tuneable parameters, leading to faster, more accurate results.
