High performance computing now available through cloud bursting to 6SigmaET and 6SigmaDCX customers around the world
London, UK – Future Facilities today announces a new partnership with Rescale, a cloud-based simulation platform provider. The relationship will allow facility managers, architects and designers from across the globe to perform the most complex data center modeling quickly, using high performance computing (HPC) in the cloud to keep up with increasing demand for fast and accurate results from the enterprise.
The partnership will allow customers of Future Facilities’ best-in-class 6SigmaET and 6SigmaDCX computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software to access Rescale’s HPC capabilities. When on premise IT infrastructure is already utilized or incapable of dealing with the size of model, cloud overflow will deliver instant, scalable and secure compute resource. In addition, customers can choose to use Rescale’s cloud exclusively for solving by storing their solver license with Rescale and then purchasing hardware time on-demand removing the high initial costs of on-site hardware.
Jonathan Leppard, Director at Future Facilities said: “The rapidly growing number of electronic devices known as the internet-of-things is leading to an explosive growth in demand for back-end computing resources. Equally, data centers are only getting larger and more complex to meet the ever-growing demand for compute power from enterprise applications. In order to run these large and complex data centers efficiently, our 6SigmaET and 6SigmaDCX suites are vital to truly understand the complex thermal environments inside data centers and electronics.”
He continued: “There is a constant battle between accuracy and speed of results, with some simple tools on the market sacrificing accuracy for faster results – a bad compromise when you consider the critical importance of these environments. Our partnership with Rescale now allows organizations to have the best of both worlds: true CFD modelling that takes advantage of unlimited compute resource allowing for accuracy as well as quick turnaround”.
Joris Poort, CEO at Rescale said: “Complex simulations have high computing requirements – however this scale of compute demand is usually not needed outside of these simulation scenarios. Through our partnership with Future Facilities, many more organizations can now use our world-class secured compute capabilities when they are needed. We look forward to helping enable the next generation of devices and data centers come to life with Future Facilities.”
Future Facilities and Rescale will be hosting a joint webinar on Wednesday 15th June at 16:00 BST, demonstrating how to set up and run 6SigmaDCX and 6SigmaET simulations on Rescale’s cloud platform.
