We offer many engineers in small and medium-sized companies and OEMs a secure IT platform for the entire product development process and the entire product life cycle, including all relevant applications.
We are very satisfied with the service and support of CPU 24/7. Besides their excellent reaction time, what really convinced us is the flexibility and the clear focus on the operating simulation environments as well as the high IT security standard.
For nearly 15 years, Rolls-Royce Deutschland has used an external, dedicated HPC environment provided by CPU 24/7 and tailored to our needs. For us, system performance, competent support and the opportunity of project based use and billing of resources is essential.
The new CPU 24/7 solution not only enables us to parallelize projects, but also to investigate complex and demanding physical processes, such as chemical processes. We were even able to increase our‚ productivity‘, including pre- and post-processing, by 20% last year.
The demands for shorter development cycles and at the same time verified product improvements are a particular challenge for all industries. In performing extensive multiphysical simulations, on-demand scalable HPC resources enable significant time savings. This is a great advantage. Furthermore the superb service of CPU 24/7 and the high demands on IT security convinced us.

Engineering Web Services
Provision of applications based on a service catalogue (application-as-a service), container platforms (container platform-as-a-service), as well as different collaboration / groupware solutions for IoT, ML/DL & Data Science.
First-class consulting & solutions to resolve the complexity in product development (PDM), for system life cycle management (SysLM) and variant management.
What makes the Engineering Cloud special?
Highest security standards
The ISMS of CPU 24/7 is ISO 27001 certified and highest level TISAX accredited. In addition, the CPU 24/7 IT infrastructure is located in a high availability & high security data centre (TIER 4) in Berlin and we also set high security standards when selecting other service providers (ISO 27001).
Personal VIP support
Customers can completely rely on CPU 24/7’s VIP support, ready to deliver personalised and fast support for almost any question or issue. Backed by a vast amount of knowledge, the engineers at CPU 24/7 get the customer’s system benchmarked, configured, tested, operational, tuned-up and updated right on time.
With nearly 15 years of experience and technology expertise in the engineering industry, CPU 24/7 has successfully implemented numerous projects using the latest and most stable cloud technologies.
End to end responsibility
CPU 24/7 assumes end-to-end responsibility for the customers’ projects, from data centre operations and the most suitable and performant physical infrastructure to the sovereignty of all system components (hardware a software) and ongoing services. Contributing to a well thought-out, scalable, individual and secured solution is of utmost importance to CPU 24/7.
Engineering Cloud – The optimal solution for every industry
Whether cloud solutions for single users, for temporary cloud bursting or complete outsourcing, CPU 24/7 always provides a suitable IT environment – backed by nearly 15 years of experience and technology expertise in various industries and exciting cloud projects.
Manufacturers use best-in-class cloud technologies by CPU 24/7 in their manufacturing processes and supply chains for data-driven Systems Engineering, process optimization, predictive maintenance, and services as well as for smart logistics. Streamlining these internal and external manufacturing operations with IoT, AI, and ML helps customers to operate smarter by using connected assets, real-time data analytics and monitoring.
The energy industry (oil & gas) relies heavily on big compute resources, which are invaluable given the high investment costs of oil production. Compute resources are used in geophysical mapping, seismic imaging and reservoir simulation as a means of identifying and investigating potential oil reserves and wells.
Chemicals & LifeScience
Protein dynamics, drug design, infectious disease propagation, bio-sequencing and many other life science applications in medical research require a huge amount of cloud computing resources to enable innovation among life sciences organizations. A research analytics and modelling cloud would provide scalable, economic compute and storage facilities over different locations, together with an easy means of collaboration and data exchange tools.
Maritime & Offshore
In today’s highly competitive marine and offshore industry, it is crucial to be smart and connected at all levels of the value creation chain. A highly sophisticated cloud platform for design, engineering, simulation, manufacturing and service quality processes (e.g. Digital Twin) enables digital transformation in the maritime industry.
With their ability to synchronise product development, supply chain, production and maintenance/repair/overhaul (MRO) strategies across aerospace manufacturers while reducing costs and resources, cloud solutions continue to be a viable option in the aerospace industry.
Manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive industry require a wide array of IT cloud solutions and services, ranging from smart factory and Internet of Things (IoT) applications that improve quality and efficiency up to product design, engineering and aftermarket services as well as applications that enable new connected vehicles and autonomous driving.
