WindSim AS, a provider of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to the wind industry, has launched its WindSim Cloud solution, a service reporting the annual energy production for planned or existing wind farms.

"Access to powerful computing resources makes cloud simulations attractive and offers an alternative to running simulations locally," says John Olaf Romma, CEO of WindSim AS, later adding, “Everyone can run cloud simulations on a pay-per-project basis. WindSim Cloud nicely complements the existing full-fetched WindSim CFD software suite."

According to the company, WindSim Cloud runs in geographically dispersed datacenters that comply with key industry standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001:2005, for security and reliability. In addition to datacenter, network, and personnel security practices, WindSim Cloud incorporates security practices at the application and platform layers, the company notes.
