ThomasWe are very pleased to announce that Thomas Francis has joined our team on February 1 as Head of Products at UberCloud. Thomas has broad industry experience in enterprise software, hardware, cloud and IT operations. His most recent role was as director of software and cloud strategy at Dell. While at Dell he launched multiple cloud businesses including Dell Cloud Business Applications and Dell Cloud Marketplace. Previously, Thomas has held leadership roles in various technology companies including SanDisk and Landmark Graphics software, a maker of 3D seismic interpretation software. Thomas has a masters degree in aerospace engineering from UT Arlington and an MBA from UC Berekely and is based in Silicon Valley.

UberCloud Introduces SaaS Service for Software Vendors on Microsoft Azure

ISV ContainersSunnyvale – Feb. 25, 2016 – UberCloud is excited to announce today plans to support independent software vendors (ISVs) in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) with its new go-to-cloud service for the hyperscale, enterprise Microsoft Azure cloud platform. The service consists of containerizing the software provider’s software, developing a Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud business model, utilizing and tuning the ISV’s application software on Azure, testing and evaluating the cloud offer, and conducting marketing and sales initiatives together with the ISV.

Toward Ubiquitous Computational Life Sciences

Team 156 - 1In this article, we argue that – despite the ever increasing complexity of Computational Life Sciences (CLS) tools, hardware, and system components – engineers have never been this close to ubiquitous CLS, as a common tool, for every engineer. The main reason for this next big advance can be seen in the continuous progress of CLS software tools which assist enormously in the design, development, and optimization of life sciences products. Now, we believe that the next big step towards ubiquitous CLS will be made very soon by new software container technology which will dramatically facilitate software packageability and portability, ease the access and use, and simplify software maintenance and support, and which finally will pass CLS into the hands of every engineer.

Cloud case study: Prediction of Barehull Resistance Curve of a Day-Cruise Ship in the Cloud

Christina OThis case study is about calculating the barehull resistance of a day-cruise ship in the cloud with a standard hull form used as a benchmark for computational fluid dynamics in the marine industry.  End-user is CCTO, the Costas Carabelas Technical Office in Athens, Greece, the designer of the famous yacht Christina O of Aristotle Onassis. “The high accuracy of NUMECA’s FINE/ Marine software, combined with the powerful UberCloud processing machine in the CPU 24/7 Cloud is an absolutely fantastic tool. It offers an opportunity for engineers to keep full control & knowledge on their projects in the Marine Hydrodynamic Environment.” This cloud benchmark was analyzed on local hardware, on virtual instances in the cloud, and on the bare-metal cloud solution offered by CPU 24/7 and UberCloud.

Deciding between Open Source and Proprietary CFD Software

Darrin StephensIn his post, Darrin Stephens, managing director at Applied CCM Pty Ltd, compares benefits and challenges with open source vs proprietary software. The primary differences are the cost of the licenses and the conditions for use of the licenses. The copyright of open source software belongs to the author rather than the vendor. Open source software licenses give some fundamental freedoms to the user such as: study how the software works, access the software code, modify the code according to specific requirements, run the software for any purpose on any number of machines, and redistribute copies of the software to others. But Darrin explains that there are also a number of strong benefits of using proprietary software. Read the nice benefit/cost/risk comparisons for open source and proprietary software HERE.

Containerizing Engineering Simulation for Faster CFD at Trek

Trek_CFD-200x137The Next Platform editor Nicole Hemsoth analyzes the growing HPC needs of Trek Bicycle and their move to the cloud. At the core of the company’s lead analysis engineer Mio Suzuki’s efforts are UberCloud’s novel software containers and especially the one for CD-adapco’s STAR-CCM+ and HEEDS optimization. “The selling point of containers is, in my opinion, the fact that I don’t have to change my ‘routines’ to set up a simulation and solve it. Using the container is as if I’m logging onto just another local network machine via remote desktop,” Suzuki says. “This is great, especially for engineers like me with short project turnaround times restricting our ability to spend time to modify working patterns or investigate in the new setup even when the ‘new way of doing’ may become beneficial in the long run.” Read the whole article at The Next Platform.

TotalSim’s Ray Leto About Motorsports in the Ohio OSC Cloud

Motorsports“Even though we’re not a big company, the Ohio Supercomputing Center (OSC) allows us an elastic ability to scale up.  We maintain our own 600 cores of HPC housed in our IT room that fits our normal daily throughput, but with access to OSC we can offer our current, or prospective clients the ability to solve large problems quickly. Whether that’s a short-term project where we need a massive amount of simulation in a short period of time, or a longer-term project with intermittent “spikes,” we just go out to OSC and have that instant scale up for quick turnaround. Access to OSC allows us to plan the usage of any number of cores over a certain period of time; I know I can easily work with the OSC staff to plan out these larger projects. I can’t express how important this flexibility is for our company compared to having to own and manage all the HPC infrastructure we’d need,” writes TotalSim President Raymond Leto  in his recent OH-TECH  blog.
