I have been exploring different simulation software based on FEM and CFD. I came across this cloud-based simulation software called SimScale. They allow for the simulations to be done on their computers and everything could be set up through a browser itself.

They also offer nice workshops and webinars. They have a huge collection of projects that is a contribution of the free users - available through a public project database. They recently also started an academic program and offering free versions for universities and design teams.

I was wondering if anyone here is using this and what you think about it? Are there any good alternatives that one might have used? They say that it is based on open-source softwares but how good are these open-source codes and are they trustworthy? Overall is cloud safe?

Does anyone have any experience to share about these cloud-based softwares?
