Ansys Elastic Licensing

Elastic licensing is a Token based licensing that gives customers access to Ansys tools and resources they need when they need them.


Flexible Licensing Solutions to Meet Customer Needs

We offer concurrent licensing on an annual or perpetual basis for customers that will use Ansys software frequently and consistently. We also offer Ansys Elastic Licensing for pay-per-use access across the Ansys portfolio, both on-premises and in the cloud.

Ansys Elastic Licensing is a flexible, pay-per-use licensing model that enables usage-based licensing for software, computing power and Ansys Cloud hardware. It complements and augments the value of other licensing solutions, removing access barriers like number of users, product access and HPC capacity.

How Ansys Elastic Licensing Helps Product Design

Engineers can use Ansys Elastic Currency’s (AEC) to access various tools to:

  • Manipulate geometry
  • Optimize designs
  • Pre-process models
  • Run simulation solvers
  • Post-process simulations

AEC’s can also be used to access simulation and HPC technology on-premise or on the cloud.

Who We Have Helped

Because Ansys Speos allows us to use our 3D CAD product as an add-on, we can perform a simulation without sacrificing the accuracy. This is one of the key aspects we liked.
