Hardware as a Service

High Performance Computing in the Cloud

The wide range of simulation tasks also requires the right hardware. Often, things can't go fast enough: at peak times or in daily work. Large models, many variants and other challenges push your own hardware to its limits. Our cloud solutions open up new possibilities by providing hardware resources that can be used immediately and flexibly at any time. HPC computing power for CAE simulation with Ansys and complementary tools. Ready to use and seamlessly applicable.

Why use hardware in the cloud?

CADFEM and its partners, Ansys and AWS, offer cloud services which allow you to access the exact HPC computing power you need at any time. Many core products are supported by Ansys Cloud or, in the case of AWS Cloud, also by ROCKY or Motor-CAD. Access is convenient either directly from the supported Ansys application or via remote graphics for 3D interactive work.

Convenient and available at any time - no more hardware limits.


All our cloud services are equipped with the latest Ansys versions and can be used immediately. 


Full cost control. Pay for what you use. Project-related costs vs. fixed costs. 


More and faster calculations. Cover peak loads. Shorten project times.

Available cloud solutions

Which cloud solution is best for you? Depending on your application profile, you can choose between two offerings to remove your hardware limitations and advance your simulation tasks. Either the benefits of Ansys Cloud with workflow integrated in the application and a common billing system via Elastic Licensing. The CADFEM Cloud team will be happy to support you in your choice.

Hardware as a Service by CADFEM 

Professional guidance and support for you 

With our services, you will have a smooth start with cloud services. 

  • Technical support from our IT experts is included when using Hardware as a Service and easily accessible through our CADFEM Support. This gives you the security you need for all your cloud-based simulation work.  
  • Commissioning: We help you set up the appropriate cloud solution. You will receive a briefing on how to use the portals, we will show you how to start simulation tasks and how to work efficiently with the cloud.  
  • Account management and monitoring: After setting up the account, the account manager receives the login data for the password-protected license and cloud portal. This provides you with an overview of your usage at any time and allows you to track the history. Automatic e-mail notifications inform you, for example, when an account limit is exceeded.

What our clients say

Dr.-Ing. Manuel Ramsaier

Ansys Cloud has made it possible for us to adhere to the schedule of time-critical and complex projects, in phases with extremely high computational effort. The connection, and the interface for starting and monitoring the computation tasks, worked out very nicely. The exchange of data was accomplished without any issues.

It feels like working on your own computer. I didn't notice much difference when working interactively on the 3D models, but the calculation was obviously much faster. Overall, the work flowed smoothly at all times.
