Does CFD support solutions using mulitple hardware boxes, meaning parsing the calculations over mulitple computers.  This is different the multiple cores.

Autodesk® Simulation CFD High Performance Computing (HPC) supports running simulations on multi-core computers as well as with clusters of computers.

A multi-core implementation is a computer that contains more than four cores. Autodesk® Simulation CFD sends the analysis data to SimCFDServer, which then sends the data to SimCFDSolver(the program that the performs the calculations) to be solved. The analysis is broken into multiple pieces and solved using the number of computer cores (CPUs) that are available.

A cluster is a group of computers connected together using a high speed network, typically INIFIBAND (a type of Ethernet). The cluster runs a version of windows called Microsoft High Performance Computing Server. Cluster computing uses multiple computers and all of their CPU's to solve the analysis.
Please check the Autodesk® Simulation CFD Knowledge Base for detailed instructions on how to implement HPC .
