How can I start using the Cloud Execution?
Cloud Execution is a new feature allowing a desktop product customer to run models in the Cloud environment. Before launching the simulation, different options of Virtual Machine images on demand are provided. Instead of setting up your own Cloud environment, you can access this function by purchasing credits through the MIKE desktop product or using the allocated Credits already provided in select Subscription packages.
To obtain access to the Cloud Execution, a customer can purchase credits separately as ‘Credit Bundles’ or if a select subscription package has been purchased, it will have ‘allocated Credits’ which are a number of credits allocated free-of-charge. Credits expire 12 months after the purchase or by the allocation date.
Where to start
You must sign into your MIKE Cloud account from the desktop product interface, eg MIKE ZERO, MIKE+ or FEFLOW.
MIKE Zero as an example - steps
#01 - Use the 'sign on' button in the upper right corner of the MIKE ZERO interface - see Fig. 1
Fig. 1 - Sign in to MIKE Cloud
#02 - Launch 'Simulation launcher' - see Fig. 2
Fig. 2 - "Simulation launcher"
#03 Simulation launcher displays the available credits in your organization. To begin a new simulation as Cloud Execution, click ' New' - see Fig. 3
Fig. 3 - Click "Launch" to start a new simulation
#04 - Choose the virtual machine you wish to use from the drop-down Menu and the maximum simulation time after which the simulation will terminate.
This feature allows a customer to better control credit use and the associated cost. Note the charge is differentiated depending on the number of cores and GPUs on the virtual machine.
