3 Arguments Against Software as a Service (SaaS) That Fall Flat


For capabilities that are not a core competency of an enterprise, IT teams are hard pressed to justify why the needs of the business could not be met with a SaaS solution. Here’s the truth. In the world of Enterprise Software, on-premises solutions are becoming rare. The economies of scale that comes with the cloud combined with the innovation and agility of SaaS ISVs has led to a world of primarily SaaS-based enterprise apps. However, there are remains of classic on-premise solutions and deployments. This article explores some of the reasons for those remains, hypothesize on what motivates enterprise IT to support them, and decides whether there will be changes in the near-term that enable a complete transition to SaaS.

Running COMSOL Multiphysics with Amazon EC2

PärCOMSOL Multiphysics has been able to utilize remote computing resources for a long time, either through batch jobs started from the user interface or the command line, or on-the-fly through client-server technology. For this, you only need a Floating Network License (FNL) for COMSOL Multiphysics®. Now, since HPC is becoming more and more important in the CAE community, COMSOL has made it as simple as possible for you to take the step into the cloud. To achieve this, COMSOL provides an easy way to launch remote COMSOL software installations for use with the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). This BLOG  from Pär Persson Mattsson describes the steps to COMSOL Multiphysics in the AWS Cloud.

Utilizing Cloud HPC Resources for CAE Simulations

Joris PoortIndustry research indicates that both the general HPC market and cloud HPC are continuing to grow to meet engineering and science demand. As cloud resources increase, users should be cognizant of the HPC platforms available in the cloud. Scalable and customizable resources are available, however, security, ease of use, and full integration of simulation software are important factors to consider when running analyses remotely. Cloud resources designed for CAE simulations allow users to leverage HPC to fully explore the design space and develop innovative products. In this insideHPC video from the Stanford HPC Conference Joris Poort from Rescale discusses cloud HPC market trends, CAE simulations in the cloud , cloud software integration for CAE, security, data management and collaboration.

ExaCloud Democratizes Simulation-Driven Design

ExaCompanies using cloud technology are accessing software that they previously did not have the bandwidth to support. Teams that are collaborating on common data in the cloud are gaining valuable insights and increasing their productivity. Exa has decided to offer their entire suite of products as a cloud offering. Now companies of varying sizes and industries can leverage the design power of simulation-driven design software, software that had previously been feasible for only the top tier auto and aerospace companies in the world. Simulation-driven design is the future of manufacturing vehicles, equipment, machinery and parts, and the cloud is poised play a major role in that transformation. SaaS can democratize virtual design tools. See more information HERE.

New Website Brings Structural Simulations into Early Design Cycle

SimulationForDesign2A new cloud-based simulation platform is looking to educate designers about structural simulations. SimulationForDesign promises to give designers the background they need to evaluate their models, hoping to improve designs earlier in the process. SimulationForDesign created by FEA simulation company Fidesys LLC assesses the structural performance of parts and small assemblies. Many of the complex procedures to fix geometry and set up the problem are simplified in the software. This includes automated mesh generation and assigning material properties. The tool is easy to use too, thanks to a simple navigation environment and cloud-based access that doesn’t require any installation. See the full article on ENGINEERING.com and the CAE Fidesys store on the UberCloud Marketplace HERE.

Guy Lonsdale Presents Fortissimo HPC Cloud

Guy Lonsdale

At the ISC Cloud Conference in 2014 in Heidelberg, Guy Lonsdale, CEO of scapos and manager of the Open Calls of the EU funded Fortissimo project gave a presentation about “Supporting Engineering & Manufacturing SMEs through the Fortissimo HPC Cloud”. Fortissimo is a collaborative project that will enable European SMEs to be more competitive globally through the use of simulation services running on a HPC cloud infrastructure. The project is coordinated by the University of Edinburgh and involves 45 partners including Manufacturing Companies, Application Developers, Domain Experts, IT Solution Providers and HPC Cloud Service Providers from 14 countries. The project is funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme.

Introduction to turbulent combustion modelling with OpenFOAM®

Ferry TapThis 3-day training will take place on April 15-17th  at the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) in Ann Arbor (MI), USA. It focuses on (U)RANS modeling and aims to get the participants familiar with the basic theoretical concepts used in turbulent combustion modeling and to provide hands-on exercises to apply the theory in practice with OpenFOAM. Combustion theory basics will be covered during the first day of the training. Advanced topics like LES, radiation, heat-transfer and pollutants are not covered. Trainer will be Dr. Ferry Tap, founder and CEO of Dacolt. Dr. Tap has obtained his PhD from the renowned EM2C laboratory at Ecole Centrale Paris. Please see more details and register on the UberCloud Marketplace.
