HISTORY

UberCloud Marketplace for Technical Computing

UberCloud was launched in July 2012 by Burak Yenier and Wolfgang Gentzsch in Silicon Valley. Our mission was to work with the engineering and scientific community to discover the roadblocks to Cloud Computing.

 

In our 1st year, over 50 HPC Cloud providers and Supercomputing Centers joined the UberCloud initiative. By mid 2014, we had over 2500 companies and individuals from 72 countries in the UberCloud Community. In these were 60 cloud providers, 80 software companies, and several hundred consulting firms and individual experts.

 

The collective learning of this group is published as an annual compendium of case studies. The 1st collection of 25 case studies 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.

 UberCloud TODAY

Today, UberCloud makes it easy to run your simulations on powerful cloud infrastructure. You can build better products, faster. Best of all – no more compromises on mesh quality or model fidelity because of hardware limitations. Unleash the full power of your analysis software and boost confidence in your results.

 

Nothing to install, nothing to setup. Just better simulations.
