Here at Rescale, we’ve had an excellent year in 2013 and are looking forward to another great year ahead. Below are some of the highlights on what we accomplished this past year, and quick preview of what’s to come in 2014!
We are always focused on making sure Rescale complies and adheres to the highest security standards in the industry. We have completed our SOC Type 2 compliance audits and have an ITAR platform that follows U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) requirements. Your company can continue to trust Rescale with your data and sensitive information knowing that we are devoted to making sure you’re protected. For more details on security, see our Security page.
In 2013, we announced both reduced pricing and new pricing tiers to give users more flexibility. Utilizing low priority and pre-paid pricing options, Rescale can help reduce your overall costs by over 50%. For further detail on our current pricing tiers, visit our Pricing page.
Based on user requests and feedback, we expanded our software library to over 30 simulation tools. As we work with software partners, we continue to see an increase in short-term licensing models. This gives you more flexibility to run your simulations on demand while easily scaling up your licenses when you need it most. For an overview of our active tools, check out our Tools page.
At the end of 2013, we refreshed our resources with a new look and framework that allows us to continue to provide you a broad selection of tutorials and examples. We also expanded the depth of documentation and self-help resources that are designed to quickly get you up and running on the platform. Several self-help videos released in 2013 include, job setup, sharing, and cloning. Take a look at our new Resources page and continue to check back for frequent updates.
As we look forward to 2014, there are many exciting projects in the works, including:
- Platform Interface Update – We are refreshing our user interface to make it easier to begin running simulations, while expanding the possibilities for authoring and executing complex workflows.
- Rescale API – The Rescale API will allow users to submit Rescale jobs programmatically and integrate our platform directly into your favorite simulation tools.
- Updated Hardware – We continue to expand our hardware capabilities and performance. As we upgrade our hardware, you can expect significant improvements in simulation speeds. Based on your feedback, specific areas we are focussing on are interconnect and latency improvements.
- Rescale On-Premise – A current project is an on-premise solution that will provide a Rescale interface for your on-premise hardware. This will allow you to run Rescale jobs utilizing your own hardware or a hybrid of your hardware and Rescale’s infrastructure.
To continue to serve you best, we are also actively hiring to expand our team.
As we embark upon an exciting new year, Rescale would like to thank you, our users, for your continued support and feedback to help make Rescale the leading cloud simulation platform. We look forward to continuing to serve you in 2014!
