"The world's largest, innovative automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers rely on Exa today to solve, through simulation, their most difficult engineering problems," remarked Stephen Remondi, President and CEO for Exa. "ExaCLOUD is more than a SaaS offering, it is a complete simulation environment. Development teams across the globe now have web-based access to our simulation products in a scalable, high-performance computing environment. This type of collaborative engineering through simulation, previously only seen at our biggest customers, is now available to all engineering companies. Having a secure, web-based interface to see their simulations and results makes teams more efficient at communicating and improves their overall product design process. Additionally, our largest customers will also benefit from access to ExaCLOUD in order to handle their peak demands efficiently."

"ExaCLOUD's web-based architecture enhances collaboration and fosters productivity," said Kevin Horrigan, ExaCLOUD Product Manager. "Online access allows all members of the team to participate in and manage the complete simulation process, regardless of their location. It enhances team efficiency by providing a central storage location for standardization and automation of common tasks all within a secure environment."

Exa's (CFD) software – which simulates fluid flow and heat transfer – enables the deployment of simulation by encouraging collaboration early in the development process, reducing costly late-stage changes. The strategic use of this technology – known as 'simulation-driven design' – provides for a highly accurate analysis of performance in real-world conditions, and allows for actionable feedback and insight on how to improve the design – something not possible when simply employing traditional testing methods. Exa enables most of the world's automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers the ability to design better vehicles through simulation, including the recently introduced Jaguar XE and the Renault EOLAB concept car.
