FLUENT 6 is now available for use in a secure portal from the Internet. Using the new Fluent Remote Simulation Facility, existing users can take advantage of "supercomputer" capacity for the execution of large or complex simulations.
The new Fluent Simulation Portal provides for fully secure 128 bit encrypted SSL service that is monitored and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This new capability is an excellent choice for existing FLUENT users who require occasional "surge capacity" for time-critical simulations, for the throughput of many jobs with varying parameters, or for periodic simulations of large models.
The Fluent Remote Simulation Facility assumes the user is an existing Fluent license holder. Models are created using a "local" Fluent pre-processor, and case/data files are then uploaded to the remote site. The facility provides all necessary components to perform the simulations including parameter set-up, file storage and management, all licenses required to operate, and access to multiple processors to improve time to completion. Accounts are provided on an individual user basis, and users are billed for simulation time only.
