Accelerating innovation and powering big compute at hundreds of leading enterprises
With the year coming to a close, I’m excited to share the progress we’ve made at Rescale—not only as the leading Big Compute and cloud HPC solution in the market, but also as one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies of 2017. It’s been a busy year as we’ve landed over 100 new enterprise customers, fueling our rapid growth in multiple key industry verticals including aerospace, automotive, life sciences, universities and with broad geographic coverage throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
Our customers are deeply engaging with the ScaleX Enterprise platform and our portfolio of industry solutions. Usage of Rescale has grown by 30% month-over-month throughout the entire year, resulting in numerous Silicon Valley investors identifying Rescale as the fastest growing enterprise software company in 2017. Customers are delivering incredible results accelerating their innovation capabilities, including: Airbus accelerating development of complex aerodynamics, LSIS deploying the first cloud-based engineering environment in Korea, RWDI implementing hybrid HPC across their enterprise, Boom Supersonic building the world’s next-generation supersonic jetliner, and many more.
Our ecosystem of partners has been quickly expanding including new software applications, cloud and infrastructure providers, technology partners, and channel and solution partners. Rescale now supports the largest portfolio of fully-integrated HPC cloud applications with over 250 software applications. Rescale has become the one-stop destination in the industry for turnkey, pay-as-you-go licensing solutions—a capability that both customers and our software partners are delighted by. Our global footprint of channel partners has also been expanding quickly—join our ecosystem today.
Rescale had a great showing at Supercomputing 2017 this year in Denver, showcasing the broad portfolio of solutions for incorporating cloud as part of the strategy for large HPC deployments, including deep integrations with on-premises HPC systems and hybrid deployments. Rescale, together with Boom Supersonic, won the prestigious HPCwire Readers’ Choice Award for Best Use of HPC in the Cloud. Rescale also held its inaugural industry advisory board, which was a stellar success with attendees from Airbus, Boeing, NASA, Northwestern University, MIT, University of Warsaw, Kyushu University, and Tokyo Institute of Technology.
Industry analysts have spent the year raving about Rescale and its capabilities, including being named a Gartner Cool Vendor for Cloud Infrastructure, notable mentions by IDC as a key solution for cloud and hybrid HPC, selected as a critical enabler for digital transformation by McKinsey & Company, and highlighted as a critical emerging technology by Goldman Sachs equity research.
Our team at Rescale has more than doubled in size across our existing and new locations including London, Munich, Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, throughout North America, and of course at our headquarters in the heart of San Francisco. As always, we are always looking for exceptional talent to join our team!
As we look toward 2018, Rescale is excited for many new milestones ahead for us, including: a deployment on our first top 5 global supercomputer, expanded production environments at three of the top 5 largest global automotive companies, deployment of the fastest fully-certified end-to-end aerospace production development environment in the world, and hundreds more big compute deployments by leading innovative Fortune 500 and Global 2000 enterprises.
I would personally like to thank all of our customers and broad ecosystem of partners for your continued support throughout this year. I’m proud of everything we have accomplished together in 2017, and our entire team looks forward to continuing to support your success for many years to come. I personally can’t wait to see which transformational innovations will be built on Rescale in 2018!
