Symscape: Software Vendor Expands Computational Fluid Dynamics Reach by Adding Cloud

Symscape, a developer of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, wanted to expand its customer base by making its CFD system even more affordable. The company used "Burst to Windows Azure" functionality as part of the Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP1 operating system to offer nearly instantaneous scalability without significant up-front costs, making it possible for smaller manufacturing organizations to take advantage of CFD capabilities. By bursting to Windows Azure, Symscape customers will be able to immediately conduct their simulation work, without waiting for others' jobs to finish or for additional hardware to be procured.
