PITTSBURGH, PA, April 13, 2022– Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire cloud simulation provider OnScale. Once integrated into Ansys’ existing cloud portfolio, this technology acquisition will help provide a cloud-native, web-based user interface (UI) for device-independent access to Ansys’ broad array of simulation technologies. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on Ansys’ consolidated financial statements in 2022.
Currently, Ansys’ industry-leading cloud portfolio, comprising a marketplace offering (Ansys Gateway powered by AWS) and a managed cloud offering (Ansys Cloud, which runs on Azure), gives customers scalable location-independent access to Ansys simulation. Additionally, PyAnsys (Ansys’ open-source Python API software package for a broad development ecosystem) provides an extensible platform-centric approach to the development and deployment of new verticalized, or use-case-specific, applications that leverage simulation. These capabilities and emerging new applications will now be strengthened by the addition of a cloud-native framework from OnScale that will support a user-friendly, web-based UI.
With a cloud portfolio that supports device-independent, location-independent, and platform-centric access to Ansys’ industry-leading technology, customers will enjoy maximum flexibility in leveraging simulation via full-featured UIs, a web-based UI, as well as through a new class of simulation-based tools accessible by all engineers, scientists, professionals, and students.
