As computer power has increased, the cost of hardware has reduced. The STAR-CCM+ approach to licensing enables you to fully utilize your computing resources by breaking the link between software price and processor count.
This allows you to harness the power of STAR-CCM+ for applications such as optimization, where analyses typically require a large number of simulations to be run concurrently, and to utilize the speed of modern processors which increase by virtue of the number of multicore processors rather than the clock speed, without being penalised by requiring additional software licenses.
STAR-CCM+ is available with the following license options:
All of these licensing options enable you to maximize ROI by reducing the simulation cost.
