Ansys hpc !?
Hi all,

I am in doubt about the next situation:

-at my work we have two ansys license installed on two different computer. The platform is the same (HP brand) both with the same version of windows and linux.
-unfortunately, sometime is necessary to run some problem, which can during very long time on a single computer.

My question is: I can used option share memory or distribution solution without buy other supplementary license ? I can use both computers to run the same problem without other investment in license ?

-both computer have dual core intel xeon (single cpu/workstation)

Thank you very much for your opinion. I will appreciate if somebody used already this settings and posted here opinion and some advice about how it works the system, and how increase the performance.

Best regards.

I have V12 and V13 (Ansys Fluent).

Ansys licensing does not allow you to use more than one active license on the same run.

You need parallel licenses to distribute a model over multiple cores/computers.
