The migration of EXN/Aero to the Google Cloud Platform is making waves across the engineering community. In fact, Digital Engineering's editor-at-large Tony Lockwood, chose the story as his 'Editor's Pick', focusing on the benefits for analysts, consultants, designers, engineers and researchers.
The migration to Google's Cloud Platform reflects Envenio’s goal to make computational fluid dynamics more accessible, with EXN/Aero addressing many of the long-time restrictions and limitations faced by engineers, replacing inflexible and expensive CFD licenses with a pay-as-you-go model in the cloud.
“We are very excited to have migrated EXN/Aero to Google, meaning users will be able to access our supercomputing platform to build, compute, analyze, and scale simulations in the Google Cloud Platform” says Scott Walton, VP at Envenio.

The Impact Of More Accessible CFD
More accessible CFD software means engineers can:
- access simulation tools and post-processing tools.
- expand their service offering to their own clients.
- keep up with the competition.
- reduce turn-around times on simulations.
- up-sell existing clients on larger or more complex models.
- provision compute resources on the fly to scale with customer demands.
The ROI of design engineers using CFD is shown below, with results based on an Aberdeen Group survey:
Is It Secure?
Google Cloud Platform is used by many of the world’s leading brands due to their commitment to integrity and security, as well as an ongoing commitment to improving and expanding the service offering.
“As you’d expect from a leading digital innovator, Google Cloud Platform is secure, high-performance, global and cost-effective, and we are excited about how this partnership will benefit engineers and make accessing CFD easier and more affordable” Scott adds.

Try It For Yourself
There's no excuse to not being able to take advantage of simulation, even if you're not an experienced engineer.
Envenio has also created the Discovery Project and Onboarding Program to further assist those in industries such as architecture, HVAC, indoor farming, and the built sector who could benefit from simulation, yet do not have comprehensive CFD experience. With the Discovery Project, Envenio executes a HVAC project on the client's behalf, returning engineering data and results according to an agreed set of objectives.
With the Onboarding Program, Envenio works alongside the HVAC engineer or consultant to kick start their simulation project while training them fully on the platform. It guarantees the client is successful in using affordable simulation software tool, EXN/Aero, and minimizes the learning curve.
