“Billed as an exposition into ‘The Future of Cloud HPC Simulation,’ the event brought together experts in high-performance computing and simulation, cloud computing technologists, startup founders, and VC investors across the technology landscape. In addition to product demonstrations with Rescale engineers, including the popular Deep Learning workshop led by Mark Whitney, Rescale Director of Algorithms, booths featuring ANSYS, Microsoft Azure, Data Collective, and Microsoft Ventures offered interactive sessions for attendees.”
Today Rescale announced the company is expanding to Europe with a new office in Munich, Germany. “Europe has always been a crucial market for Rescale,” said Rescale co-founder and CEO Joris Poort. “We are thrilled to be establishing a solid regional foundation for sales and support for our customers in Europe. Wolfgang Dreyer’s HPC expertise and deep familiarity with the region will be a tremendous asset to help serve our European customers.”
“Customers love the flexibility that our turn-key solution and pay-as-you-go hardware give them, and we are excited to be extending that flexibility to ANSYS software users. Agile resources will help our mutual customers utilize computing and simulation to drive new innovations faster across a broad spectrum of industries,” said Rescale co-founder and CEO Joris Poort. “Additionally, enterprises can leverage Rescale’s built-in administration and collaboration tools to manage resources and improve results across the design portfolio, as well as trust in best-in-class security features such as built-in enterprise-grade encryption, SOC2 compliance, and an ITAR compliant platform.”
“Most of the IT innovation that is happening today is with a cloud-first model,” said Joris Poort, co-founder and CEO of Rescale. “We’re building a platform that can satisfy and accelerate the ideas of the world’s top scientists and thinkers. From automotive design to drug discovery and even actual rocket science, we’re empowering our customers as leaders in their respective fields, to accomplish more and innovation faster.”
“High performance computing is a $20 billion market dominated by legacy on-premise IT players with minimal cloud penetration today,” said Toshi Otani, Managing Director at TransLink capital. “Rescale’s platform solution addresses the key security and performance challenges that have historically held back enterprises from pushing their HPC data centers into the cloud. As the industry-leading platform solution for enterprise HPC, Rescale has demonstrated to be uniquely well positioned as HPC makes the inevitable transition to the cloud.”
Denver-based Boom Technology is leveraging Rescale’s cloud-based simulation and optimization system to enable a rebirth of supersonic passenger travel. “Rescale’s cloud platform is a game-changer for engineering. It gives Boom computing resources comparable to building a large on premise HPC center. Rescale lets us move fast with minimal capital spending and resources overhead,” Joshua Krall, Co-founder & CTO.
Zach Smocha from Rescale presented this talk at the HPC User Forum. “Manor Racing is partnering with San Francisco based Rescale as a key technology provider for its 2016 FIA Formula 1 World Championship challenge. Manor Racing will use Rescale’s cloud high performance computing (HPC) platform to enable trackside simulation on a whole new scale for the team. Working in tandem with Manor Racing’s existing race strategy simulation software, the Rescale cloud HPC platform will enable its engineers to evaluate thousands of simulations and strategies, placing the team to be at the cutting edge of innovative decision making during a Grand Prix weekend. The whole process is executed from a laptop web browser by Rescale’s massively scalable cloud infrastructure and computer environment.”
Manor Racing will use Rescale’s cloud high performance computing platform to enable trackside simulation on a whole new scale for the team. “The cloud market is moving at the speed of Formula 1. We are continually challenging ourselves to enable our customers to achieve better results faster by leveraging and deploying the latest technologies in computing hardware and simulation software to the industry leaders. We are now doing this with Manor Racing and not only deploying cutting edge technology, but also technology that delivers direct and tangible results through the sport. It’s very exciting for all of us.”
“Rescale provides a unified HPC simulation platform for the Enterprise IT environment. Rescale’s platform integrates with existing job schedulers to burst workloads to cloud computing resources. We provide high performance computing options such as InfiniBand-connected and GPU-accelerated nodes that can be provisioned on-demand. We will demo an example workload on such an on-demand cluster. Finally, we will cover the Rescale administration panel for managing your cloud/on-premise connectivity for software licenses and single sign-on authentication.”
Today HPC cloud provider Rescale announced that Zack Smocha has joined the company as vice president of product marketing, bringing two decades of experience in cloud and enterprise software marketing to his new role. As a member of the Rescale executive team, Smocha will play a key role in supporting Rescale’s mission to provide the leading cloud based high performance computing (HPC) and simulation platform empowering the world’s engineers, scientists, developers and IT professionals to design innovative products and transform IT into unified, agile environments.
