Run FDS in the Cloud with Sabalcore HPC

Sabalcore hosts the popular FDS software as part of our High Performance Computing Cloud for many years. Our HPC Cloud allows fire engineers to easily configure and run FDS simulations in parallel using hundreds of cores depending on the model. Dramatically increase processing power and complete your simulations quickly. In some cases, 10x faster results.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. The software solves numerically a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low-speed, thermally-driven flow, with an emphasis on smoke and heat transport from fires.

  • Get results faster
  • Used 1 to 700+ bare-metal processor core per simulation (model dependent)
  • Advanced processor to mesh customization
  • Run multiple simulations concurrently
  • Suitable for small to very large projects and on going production
  • Download results in minutes rather than hours with our proprietary file transfer client.
  • Pay-as-you-go pricing model
  • Secure, private, confidential


It’s easy for PyroSim users to run their simulations. After you create the model in PyroSim simply export the .fds file and copy it to your user account at Sabalcore. We provide everything you need to transfer your files. Next, choose the number of (and type) of processors you want for your simulation. There are many options and customizations available. Finally, submit the job for processing. You can actively control, monitor, and access all the output files of your simulation in real-time using our built-in remote desktop capability. Results can also be downloaded and viewed locally. You have complete control of your simulation at all times.


Visualize in the Cloud

With our built-in remote desktop, you have the ability to visualize your models in real-time, as the model is processing. It’s like having you own workstation in the Cloud.
