DYNAMICALLY CONFIGURABLE MODELING CLOUD
The ETC is seeking a collaboration partner interested in providing accelerated access to flexibly deployed computing resources to meet member companies’ needs and enhance collaboration.
Moving computationally heavy scientific simulation to cloud computing platforms like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and others is an increasing trend in the industry as a more efficient alternative to expanding in-house high performance computing. One of the biggest challenges with such platforms is the migration of software licenses either to the cloud or to some mechanism for a cloud platform to see the license server behind company’s firewall. The goal of this project is to create an elastic cloud computing facility that has a pay-as-you-go license structure for multiple stipulated software packages and large arrays of computing resources able to accelerate the results from simulations on demand.
