HISTORY

UberCloud Marketplace for Technical Computing

UberCloud was launched in July 2012 by Burak Yenier and Wolfgang Gentzsch in Silicon Valley. The early idea was to discover the roadblocks to Cloud Computing and crowd-source solutions with the engineering and scientific community.

In the first year more than 50 HPC Cloud providers and Supercomputing Centers joined the UberCloud initiative. By mid 2014, over 2500 companies and individuals from 72 countries joined the UberCloud Community. These included over 60 cloud providers, 80+ software companies, and several hundred consulting firms and individual experts.

The collective learning of this group results in an annual compendium of case studies. The first collection of 25 was published in HPCwire and can be downloaded HERE. These case studies were selected from the first 60 UberCloud Experiment teams to raise awareness in the digital manufacturing community about the benefits and best practices of using remote computing capabilities.
