Accelerating complex physics simulations

Dec 7, 2021

Cadence partnered with atNorth to develop a global HPC-as-a-Service platform that solved complex and time-consuming challenges, including significant capital investment. Built on the atNorth HPC as a Service platform and delivered from our sustainable data centers in Iceland, the solution has delivered record-breaking simulation performance, eliminated HPC management and investment burdens, and provided a single managed infrastructure that is being consumed by Cadence teams in Europe, North America, and Asia, as well as the company’s own customers.

Designed for large-capacity projects and ready to scale up and down, HPCaaS provides the simplicity and flexibility Cadence needed to deliver HPC as a service for its teams and world class engineering solutions to its customers.
