Businesses across many verticals, from industrial engineering to healthcare to automotive and aerospace engineering, use Ansys tools and similar software for real-world simulations and modeling. These simulations are extremely compute-intensive, so when choosing a solution on which to run them, high performance is critical. A cloud service provider such as Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers many options—which instance will work best for these complex use cases?
Testing at multiple node counts showed that bare-metal OCI-BM.Optimized3.36 instances enabled by 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors improved performance of two Ansys Fluent simulation cases compared to OCI-BM.HPC2.36 instances with 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors. With such consistent performance improvements, companies running fluid dynamics workloads on OCI should consider OCI-BM.Optimized3.36 instances enabled by 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
