San Francisco, CA — Rescale and DYNAmore are excited to announce that hourly, on-demand licenses of the popular finite element analysis (FEA) software LS-DYNA are now available in Europe on ScaleX™ Enterprise, Rescale’s enterprise cloud platform for big compute. The joint launch builds on the success of on-demand licensing in the United States, which accounts for 99% of LS-DYNA jobs on ScaleX in that country. DYNAmore, LS-DYNA’s European distributor, will take care of orders and billing, while Rescale will deliver the software on its cloud platform.

Rescale provides ScaleX, a cloud computing platform for simulation and other software that require high-performance computing (HPC). Over 200 third-party software packages, including LS-DYNA, are integrated onto the ScaleX platform, which users can leverage on the cloud via an intuitive SaaS graphical user interface. Rescale partners with major public cloud providers, including AWS and Microsoft Azure, to allow users to run simulations on a global network of the latest HPC hardware.

LS-DYNA, one of the most popular software packages on the ScaleX platform, was previously available to European customers under a “bring-your-own-license (BYOL)” model that permitted customers to use their annual or paid-up licenses on the Rescale platform. With the addition of on-demand licensing, European LS-DYNA customers can now instantly purchase hourly licenses on the cloud to meet their variable simulation requirements and pay by the hour for the licenses they use. In conjunction with Rescale’s multi-cloud network of on-demand HPC hardware, on-demand licenses will allow European LS-DYNA customers to fully leverage the elasticity of the cloud. “Engineers at European enterprises now have the freedom to scale out their LS-DYNA simulations in the blink of an eye, giving their organizations the IT agility that directly corresponds with ROI,” said Joris Poort, Rescale’s CEO.

DYNAmore’s Software Solutions Manager Uli Göhner anticipates the news will boost LS-DYNA sales in Europe as the software licenses become more accessible and easy to purchase. “We already have a lot of requests from our existing customer base for short term HPC resources. Our flexible licensing strategy allows customers to lease additional licenses for a short term or to purchase licenses on a pay-per-use basis. This new licensing option was implemented especially for our LS-DYNA cloud offering and allows our customers to use their HPC resources effectively.”

Rescale is a Gold Sponsor of the 11th European LS-DYNA Conference in Salzburg, Austria on May 9-11, 2017. Visit the Rescale booth for a live demo of how to buy on-demand licenses on ScaleX.

San Francisco, CA — Rescale is pleased to announce a partnership with Computer Simulation Technology (CST®), part of SIMULIA, a Dassault Systèmes brand, that will allow engineers and scientists running simulations in CST STUDIO SUITE to easily access the world’s largest high-performance computing (HPC) network via Rescale’s ScaleX platform.

CST STUDIO SUITE is a best-in-class software package for electromagnetic simulation.  Customers often demand high-performance IT resources for large system-level simulation. Reducing run-times, particularly for multi-parameter optimization, can improve design throughput and the critical time-to-market for a product. Such IT resources are traditionally on-premise, but can incur large start-up and maintenance costs and can be redundant within 3 years as new technology comes along. Rescale offers an alternative scalable, secure and turn-key, cloud-based platform that now allows CST STUDIO SUITE to run on its worldwide network of high-performance computers, including the most state-of-the-art hardware available.

Under the new partnership, CST customers can bring their own licenses, and CST STUDIO SUITE will be available pre-configured on Rescale’s ScaleX platform. By accessing Rescale’s ScaleX platform through any browser, CST STUDIO SUITE users can run sophisticated engineering simulations on Rescale’s global multi-cloud HPC network of over 60 data centers in 30 plus locations worldwide. Demanding users can scale out to thousands of cores and choose hardware configurations optimized to the requirements of CST STUDIO SUITE’s complete technology portfolio, with options ranging from economical HPC configurations to cutting-edge bare metal systems, low-latency InfiniBand interconnect, and the latest Intel and NVIDIA GPU chipsets.

With Rescale’s ScaleX platform, enterprises can leverage built-in administration and collaboration tools to build teams, manage resources, and share jobs with team members.  Additionally, enterprise administrators can take advantage of best-in-class security features such as multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, and set IP access rights, on a platform that meets the highest security standards, including ISO 27001 and 27017, SOC2 Type 2, ITAR, and HIPAA.

“We are very excited to be partnering with CST, as a new part of the SIMULIA brand of Dassault Systèmes, said Joris Poort, CEO at Rescale.  “We believe that CST STUDIO SUITE users will benefit from the fast, flexible, secure, and huge on-demand resources that Rescale can bring to computationally-demanding tools, such as electromagnetic simulation.”

Dr. Martin Timm, Director Global Marketing at CST added, “CST STUDIO SUITE provides   comprehensive, advanced solving engines based on various numerical methods for world-class electromagnetic simulation. These engines run optimally on various types of hardware, and we believe that making them available on Rescale’s ScaleX platform will allow our customers access to the best possible performance across the whole suite of tools.”

Rescale is sponsoring the CST European User Conference 2017 in Darmstadt, Germany this week on April 27-28, 2017.
