All that compute power is enticing, right? It’s a great story. But there’s just one big problem: getting your simulation model into the cloud. And that wouldn’t be a problem if these simulation models weren’t quite so humongous. I mean, you wouldn’t need all that compute power if these simulations were easy to solve, right?

For me, this along with concerns about intellectual property have been the factors limiting the success behind the vision of performing simulations in the cloud. But interestingly enough, this will soon be changing.
