Rescale has partnered with Computer Simulation Technology (CST®), part of SIMULIA, a Dassault Systèmes brand, enabling engineers and scientists running simulations in CST STUDIO SUITE – a software package for electromagnetic simulation – to easily access the world’s largest high-performance computing (HPC) network via Rescale’s ScaleX™ platform.
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 three years as new technology comes along.
Under the new partnership, CST customers can bring their own licenses, and CST STUDIO SUITE will be available pre-configured on Rescale’s ScaleX cloud-based platform. By accessing the 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 the 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 today and tomorrow (April 27-28, 2017), where attendees have the opportunity to hear more about and discuss the advantages of running CST STUDIO SUITE on the cloud with Rescale.
