San Francisco, CA – Rescale and ANSYS are pleased to announce a strategic partnership that will provide users of ANSYS’ suite of engineering simulation software the ability to run their simulations on Rescale’s scalable, turn-key, cloud-based platform. ANSYS’ new Elastic Licensing for cloud computing, which allows users to purchase pay-per-use licensing, is available to be hosted and deployed on Rescale, while ANSYS users can also use their own traditional lease and paid-up licenses.

ANSYS offers simulation-driven product development tools across the entire range of physics, including structural mechanics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), electromagnetics, explicit dynamics, as well as the combination of these physics. Now, eight of those tools (including CFX, CHEMKIN-PRO, Fluent, HFSS, Maxwell, and Mechanical) are available, pre-configured and optimized, on Rescale’s powerful, turn-key simulation platform. By accessing the Rescale platform through any browser, ANSYS users can easily run sophisticated engineering simulations on Rescale’s global multi-cloud HPC network of 60+ data centers in 25+ locations. Engineers can scale out on thousands of cores and choose hardware configurations optimized to the diverse needs of the ANSYS suite, with options ranging from economical HPC configurations to cutting-edge bare metal systems, low-latency InfiniBand interconnect, and the latest Intel and NVIDIA chipsets.

Pay-as-you-go, no-commitment hardware and ANSYS Elastic Licensing ensure that dynamic HPC resources are responsive to the variability in simulation loads that engineering enterprises face, which in turn enables shortened product design cycles and increased IT agility. “Customers love the flexibility that our turn-key solution and pay-as-you-go hardware give them, and we are excited to be extending that flexibility to ANSYS software users. Agile resources will help our mutual customers utilize computing and simulation to drive new innovations faster across a broad spectrum of industries,” said Rescale co-founder and CEO Joris Poort. Additionally, enterprises can leverage Rescale’s built-in administration and collaboration tools to manage resources and improve results across the design portfolio, as well as trust in best-in-class security features such as built-in enterprise-grade encryption, SOC2 compliance, and an ITAR compliant platform.

Ray Milhem, VP of Enterprise Solutions and Cloud at ANSYS, echoed the importance of flexibility, saying, “We’ve always given our customers a number of deployment options with our comprehensive range of engineering simulation software products. Now, by making our software available on Rescale with Elastic Licensing, we’re also giving the option to elastically expand their simulations and hardware to better meet project timing. Engineers have more power and more flexibility than ever before.”

Rescale selects IBM as a preferred cloud provider, helping customers achieve unprecedented performance, scale and flexibility

rescaleibmcloud

Salt Lake City, Utah — Rescale, a global leader in cloud high performance computing (HPC), announced today that it has selected IBM Cloud as a preferred cloud computing provider, expanding its global HPC infrastructure network. By running Rescale’s simulation and deep learning platform on the IBM Cloud, engineers, data scientists, CIOs, and IT professionals gain greater global reach, flexibility, and performance for their data and graphics-intensive workloads.

Rescale’s platform provides a software library of over 180+ simulation and machine learning applications that tackle the world’s toughest big data and big compute IT challenges. Now companies can deploy Rescale’s turn-key SaaS platform in any IBM Cloud Data Center worldwide. This also includes running popular deep learning and AI software packages by providing unlimited, pay-as-you-go access to the latest GPUs, enabling organizations to stay on the cutting edge of R&D. Rescale on IBM Cloud enables seamless access and utilization of HPC resources in the cloud, enabling engineers and data scientists to increases efficiency and time to market and providing IT executives increased visibility and control over the full-stack environment.

“IBM Cloud is democratizing HPC. We are not just breaking down the financial barriers to entry; now, with Rescale, we are also making this raw compute power accessible and easy to use,” said Marc Jones, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Cloud Infrastructure.

Companies can now select IBM’s bare metal cloud servers enabled with the latest NVIDIA® GPU capabilities to meet the technical and performance requirements of applications in data mining, machine learning and simulation. IBM’s GPU-enabled servers can be spun up on an hourly basis, giving companies granular control and scalability over their private, public or hybrid cloud environments. In addition to the latest x86 processors, NVIDIA GPU accelerators, Rescale plans to extend its support to IBM POWER-based server capabilities in 2017.

The Rescale solution running on the IBM Cloud is key for companies running HPC workloads in a broad range of sectors such as life sciences and genomics, computer-aided engineering and manufacturing, electronic design automation and semiconductors, and financial services.

By running their simulation and HPC workloads on the Rescale platform, customers benefit from:

  • Faster product time to market by shortening design cycles and improved software development.
  • Reduced IT capex spend and improved TCO and ROI from a cloud-based pay-as-you-go model—customers use only what’s needed.
  • Transformed IT agility by enabling global collaboration and access to HPC infrastructure.
  • Integrated solutions including hybrid, on-premises, private and public cloud, and IoT networks.

“Most of the IT innovation that is happening today is with a cloud-first model,” said Joris Poort, co-founder and CEO of Rescale. “We’re building a platform that can satisfy and accelerate the ideas of the world’s top scientists and thinkers. From automotive design to drug discovery and even actual rocket science, we’re empowering our customers as leaders in their respective fields, to accomplish more and innovation faster.”
