Scale-Out Computing on AWS

Deploy a multiuser environment for computationally intensive workflows, such as Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE)


Scale-Out Computing on AWS helps customers deploy and operate a multiuser environment for computationally intensive workflows, such as computer-aided engineering (CAE). This AWS Solution features a large selection of compute resources, a fast network backbone, unlimited storage, and budget and cost management directly integrated within AWS.  


User interface

Deploy and set up an example user interface (UI) with a common set of APIs that allow the administrator and users to interact with their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) cluster.

Pre- and post-processing in the cloud

Help users easily access the EC2 cluster to perform any pre- and post-processing visualization actions through Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) graphical sessions.

Near real-time analytics

Ingest schedulers and application logs in near real-time, and then store them in the data lake for further processing.

Custom code and automation

Customize and extend a collection of scripts deployed with the solution to help users collect data and run common cluster tasks.

Technical details

You can automatically deploy this architecture using the implementation guide and the accompanying AWS CloudFormation template.

Case study
Rivian Acts on Vision of Agile Engineering on AWS
In 2020, Rivian found that its on-premises research and development information technology infrastructure could not keep up with its performance needs.
Resource bottlenecks affected product lifecycle management, computer-aided design, and computer-aided engineering, so Rivian began using AWS to architect an agile engineering environment.
