In a recent article in Digital Manufacturing Report called CFD for the Rest of Us, writer John Kirkley  outlines the many benefits of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), as well as the challenges small to medium sized business have in being able to use this powerful simulation tool. Interestingly enough, Kirkley points out how modern technologies, including the Cloud, are making tools like CFD more accessible to those organizations not ready, or not interested in investing in staff with CFD expertise.
 
To our many customers in manufacturing, this is a great article about how CFD works. One of the answers to providing these powerful HPC Tools to smaller organizations seems to be on-demand cloud computing. A benefit of this clearly is that the staff working on a new product design, can be focused on just that - engineering a better product - versus HPC system administration.
