Harnessing the power of simulation in the cloud

Simulation software provider Computer Simulation Technology (CST), part of Simulia, a Dassault Systèmes brand, have partnered with Rescale, a HPC and cloud computing provider to enable engineers and scientists running simulations in CST Studio Suite to easily access Rescale’s ScaleX platform.

‘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.’

CST Studio Suite is a software package specifically for electromagnetic simulation. Customers using this softwae 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 the platform through a web browser, CST users can run engineering simulations on Rescale’s global multi-cloud HPC network of over 60 data centres in 30 locations worldwide. Demanding users can scale out to thousands of cores and choose hardware configurations optimised 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.

Dr Martin Timm, director of 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.’

With Rescale’s ScaleX platform, businesses 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 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.
