ZephyCloud is the back-end service developed by ZephyScience to connect its modeling chains with the Cloud (Amazon Web Services servers) to perform burst cloud computing.
This allows any user of ZephyScience software to launch multiple calculations simultaneously with high calculation resources (core power), even without having access to high-performance machines internally.
ZephyCloud allows to launch clusters of machines effortlessly for each calculation, which solves the queuing issue in CFD and therefore gets rid of the unwanted compromise between time and accuracy.
The business-model of ZephyScience’s software services relies on a pay-as-you-go system. The fully functional ZephyTOOLS software is freely accessibly at any time. However, what makes this software stand out is its cloud-computing capacity. This is charged on a cores-per-hour basis, with costs increasing with calculation time and number of processors used. The used calculation resources are charged in ZephyCoins, where each ZephyCoin costs € 4 and the amount of ZephyCoins spent per calculation depends on the type of account chosen.
