Ansys has signed an agreement to acquire cloud simulation provider OnScale

According to the company, once the OnScale technology is integrated into Ansys' existing cloud portfolio, it will provide a cloud-native, web-based user interface (UI) for device-independent access to Ansys' simulation technologies. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on Ansys' consolidated financial statements in 2022.

The Ansys cloud portfolio includes a marketplace offering (Ansys Gateway powered by AWS) and a managed cloud offering (Ansys Cloud, which runs on Azure). Additionally, PyAnsys (Ansys' open-source Python API software package) provides a platform-centric approach to the development and deployment of new verticalized, or use-case-specific, applications that leverage simulation. .

“Customer needs are varied, and any successful cloud strategy must give customers the flexibility to adapt the use of cloud to their unique simulation challenges. To that end, our cloud strategy addresses the needs of not only existing customers, but any engineer, scientist or professional who can benefit from simulation technology,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “From enterprise customers who have invested heavily in simulation, to startups seeking flexible, scalable purchasing – Ansys provides organizations of all sizes with flexibility to leverage the cloud in ways that create maximum value for their teams.”

“OnScale's cloud-native technology combines the limitless compute power of cloud supercomputers with an intuitive web-based front end, making simulation accessible to anyone. Knowing that OnScale's technology will now run simulations using Ansys' industry-leading technology is incredibly exciting for me and my team. We are thrilled to be joining the Ansys family,” said Ian Campbell, CEO of OnScale.
