San Francisco, August 26, 2015 – Rescale, the industry-leading simulation and high performance computing (HPC) platform provider, announced today that the Europe region simulation and HPC platforms are now publicly available.

Rescale’s Europe region deployment of ScaleX Enterprise, ScaleX Pro, and ScaleX Developer provides European companies with the ability to instantly scale out their computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulations in an on-demand and highly secure HPC environment. While the ScaleX platforms have been globally available since May of 2015, this new Europe specific region deployment confines HPC hardware to Europe to accommodates companies with European data control restrictions that are interested in deploying cloud solutions. With the standard ScaleX platform interface, Rescale’s Europe region platforms have, until now, been in private deployment with companies throughout central Europe.

Companies with European hardware restrictions are no longer excluded from leveraging the advantages of cloud computing. The close vicinity of data centers ensures quick data transfer times and complies with the data regulations some companies require. Rescale’s Europe region deployment provides dynamic, scalable, high-performance hardware and on-demand simulation  software in one unified environment to companies looking to accelerate and optimize their engineering and science simulations.

“We’re very excited to offer an exclusive Europe region specific platform that will provide companies with the ability to transform their traditional, stagnant IT into a flexible, secure cloud environment,” said Rescale CEO, Joris Poort. “In today’s competitive world, it’s critical for companies to be easily able to adapt to changing engineering workloads. With Rescale’s Europe region deployment, companies can leverage a consolidated platform that is optimized for their needs, while maintaining the security and data control measures that are essential to their work.”

European companies can now access hardware located in several different countries,  all from one standard platform interface. Further country or datacenter specific controls can be applied as customers may require.  Rescale’s traditional high-security policies, core configuration diversity, and on-demand business model are all built-in to the European platform. Companies interested in using the European platform can visit eu.rescale.com or contact info@rescale.com.
