Intense regulatory and market demands have made it extremely difficult for manufacturers to reach their design targets through sequential design iterations. The new ExaCLOUD optimization solution allows engineers to systematically and automatically explore large numbers of design alternatives, and identify those with the most optimal performance. This proven functionality enables users to easily set up workflows in modeFRONTIER to simultaneously evaluate numerous designs with PowerFLOW simulations and quickly meet design targets.

“ExaCLOUD is a complete simulation environment,” remarked Ales Alajbegovic, Exa Vice President. “Now all customers can have access to the sophisticated optimization application and high-powered scalable computing environment formerly available to only the largest companies in the world. Additionally, many customers are finding it easier to implement simulation-driven design more efficiently thanks to the automation and collaboration capabilities within ExaCLOUD.”

Carlo Poloni, ESTECO President, added, “ESTECO is proud to make its leading-edge optimization technology available to Exa’s customers in a new, flexible way. By accessing the advanced capabilities of modeFRONTIER directly from the ExaCLOUD environment, innovative companies will develop products with superior performance, while enjoying an efficient usage of high performance computational resources.”
