ANSYS | High-Performance Computing

High-performance computing (HPC) adds tremendous value to engineering simulation by enabling the creation of large, high-fidelity models that yield accurate and detailed insight into the performance of a proposed design. High-fidelity simulations allow engineering teams to innovate with a high degree of confidence that their products will meet customer expectations — because their extremely accurate simulations are predicting the actual performance of the product under real-world conditions.

HPC also adds value by enabling greater simulation throughput. Using HPC resources, engineering teams can analyze not just a single design idea, but many design variations. By simulating multiple design ideas concurrently, R&D teams can identify dramatic engineering improvements early in the design process, prior to and more effectively than physical prototyping alone.

ANSYS HPC specifically enables parallel processing for solution of the toughest, higher-fidelity models — including more geometric detail, larger systems and more complex physics. Using ANSYS HPC to understand detailed product behavior provides companies with confidence in the design and helps ensure that the product will succeed in the market.


Enablers of high fidelity, ANSYS HPC Packs allow scalability in use of high-performance computing to whatever level a simulation requires. A group of ANSYS HPC Packs can be used to enable entry-level parallel processing for multiple simulations or can be combined to offer highly scaled parallel for the most challenging projects.

ANSYS HPC Workgroup

ANSYS HPC Workgroup solutions offer volume parallel to enhance the throughput of multiple simulations and improve the productivity of users within a single co-located workgroup.

ANSYS HPC Enterprise

ANSYS HPC Enterprise solutions provide volume parallel capabilities to support multiple users, with complete flexibility to deploy and use the software wherever there are distributed resources.

ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack

The ANSYS HPC Parametric Pack license amplifies the available licenses for individual applications (pre-processing, meshing, solve, HPC, post-processing), enabling simultaneous execution of multiple design points while consuming just one set of application licenses.
