HPC and SMEs – The Fortissimo Initiative

“Fortissimo will make advanced simulation more easily accessible, particularly to SMEs, through the realization of a “one-stop shop” where hardware, expertise, applications, visualization and tools will be easily available and affordable on a pay-per-use basis. In doing this, it will create and demonstrate a sustainable commercial ecosystem where actors at all levels in the value chain can realize sufficient commercial benefit to enable that ecosystem to persist independently of EU funding and continue to provide affordable services to manufacturing industry, particularly SMEs.”

Video: Cloud for the “Missing Middle”

Leo Reiter from Nimbix presented this deck at the HPC User Forum. “Nimbix is a pure high performance computing cloud built for volume, speed and simplicity. We give people the tools and the processing power to solve their biggest, toughest problems. We give you the freedom to imagine new possibilities, to test the limits of reality, and to model the future. For most workloads, Nimbix is far less expensive than building, running and maintaining your own supercomputer. It’s also more efficient at spinning up, executing, completing the job and delivering your results — which saves you time and money. And our user-friendly platform means you invest less in development and infrastructure.”
