  abstract = {In this paper, we report on the results of numerical
		  experiments in the field of computational fluid dynamics
		  (CFD) on Amazon's HPC cloud. To this end, we benchmarked
		  our MPI-parallel fluid solver NaSt3DGPF on several HPC
		  compute nodes of the cloud system. Our solver can use CPUs
		  and GPUs to calculate the simulation results. With a
		  pre-requested number of instances we observe for both, CPUs
		  and GPUs, good scalability even for a larger number of
		  parallel processes, provided that the GPUs run in the
		  non-ECC mode. Furthermore, we see a high potential for
		  medium sized parallel compute problems which are typically
		  present in industrial engineering applications.},
