Siemens Expands NX Simulation Solutions on Rescale’s On-demand Cloud Environment

Cost–effective, Scalable Model for Hardware and Simulation Software; Improves efficiency and product quality; accelerates time-to-market

The simulation solutions within Siemens’ comprehensive NX™ software offering that perform thermal and fluid flow analysis are now available on Rescale’s on-demand, dynamically scalable, cloud simulation and high-performance computing (HPC) platform. With Siemens’ NX™ Nastran® software already available on Rescale, this addition provides customers a broader selection of Siemens’ simulation products powered by the largest worldwide network of HPC hardware. The Rescale simulation platform seamlessly integrates simulation software with customizable HPC infrastructure and makes these resources available to users directly through a web browser. The platform helps engineers and scientists reduce product development time, which can result in improved efficiency, increased innovation, higher product quality and faster time-to-market.

There is a common trend across all major manufacturing industries to simulate larger and more complex models, to explore more design alternatives through simulation and to simulate multiple physics domains such as structural, thermal, and flow behavior. Access to Siemens’ solvers for these different disciplines on Rescale provides companies, large and small, with flexibility in their HPC investments. This solution enables engineers to easily run design-of-experiments (DOE), multidisciplinary design explorations and stand-alone or multi-solver simulations, resulting in cost-effective, large scale simulations that more thoroughly evaluate design options.

“We are excited to expand the portfolio of simulation tools available on Rescale’s simulation platform with NX Flow and NX Thermal solvers,” said Jim Rusk, Senior Vice President, Product Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software. “As customers increasingly look to move to more flexible, scalable and high performing computing options, Rescale helps enhance our core set of leading simulation products with a robust, secure, online service available across their global network.”

Engineers can access NX solvers on the Rescale cloud environment either using their own software licenses or by using licenses provided by Rescale on a pay-per use basis. The latter method gives users significant flexibility to meet their varying computing needs. This option also now offers a pre-paid discount that provides more value to customers.

“Rescale values our strong partnership with Siemens Digital Industries Software and is pleased to make more Siemens simulation tools available to our mutual customers on Rescale’s platform,” said Joris Poort, Chief Executive Officer, Rescale. “By continuing to offer flexible hourly pricing models for the NX solver portfolio, Siemens Digital Industries Software reinforces its position as a technology and thought leader in the simulation industry during the massive shift from legacy on-premise systems to agile cloud HPC platforms and on-demand simulation software deployment models.”

To learn more about Siemens partnership with Rescale and how it benefits simulation, users can attend a webinar titled, “Accelerate the Process of Engineering Design with NX Thermal/Flow on Rescale” on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, at 8 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (11:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time). A live simulation will be performed to demonstrate the power and ease-of-use of running NX Thermal/Flow on Rescale’s cloud simulation platform. Parametric studies and DOE analyses of thermo-fluid systems will also be highlighted. To register, visit
