High-Performance Cloud Computing

Run fast, secure simulations in the cloud with CONVERGE Horizon. If you don’t have access to an on-premise cluster, or if you’re short on compute resources, we’ve got you covered! CONVERGE Horizon provides easy access to the latest hardware at a discount. Our cloud computing resources are optimized for the CONVERGE solver, ensuring an excellent performance-to-cost ratio. 

To create a flexible, affordable cloud platform for CONVERGE users, we partnered with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). CONVERGE Horizon provides on-demand access to OCI’s state-of-the-art bare metal servers and virtual machines (VMs). These options offer high levels of performance for demanding workloads in a secure cloud environment. To protect your data, OCI applies a secure virtual network layer that prevents attacks and keeps your data isolated. Additionally, we offer region-locked computational resources for compliance with any jurisdictional or organizational requirements.


Through CONVERGE Horizon, you’re not just getting a great deal on hardware––you can also access CONVERGE on demand! This flexible option allows you to pay for only the software you need for your workload. If you’re conducting a one-time simulation study, or if you need additional licenses to run multiple jobs in parallel, purchasing CONVERGE on demand is a cost-effective solution.

On-demand CONVERGE licenses include access to CONVERGE Studio for all your pre- and post-processing needs. In addition, take advantage of our free live and on-demand training to get up to speed with CONVERGE, and make use of our available support options if you need personalized assistance setting up your case.

Save Time With In Situ Post-Processing

In a traditional cloud CFD workflow, when your simulation is complete you must download your data to local storage or access your data on the cloud server to begin post-processing. CONVERGE offers a time-saving alternative: in situ post-processing via ParaView Catalyst. With this approach, ParaView accesses the CONVERGE data at a user-specified interval and performs the post-processing directly on the cloud processors while the simulation is running. At the end of the simulation, you can download just the subset of fully-processed files you need—a much smaller amount of data than in a traditional workflow. In addition to saving time, this method allows you to entirely automate your post-processing procedure.
