Calibre in the cloud: Unlocking massive scaling and cost efficiencies

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services–servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, intelligence, and more–over the Internet (“the cloud”) to offer faster innovation, flexible resource usage, and economies of scale. While the electronic design automation (EDA) industry adopted a cloud services model somewhat later than other businesses, both design companies and IP providers (including foundries) have embraced the use of cloud technology. Cloud computing provides an opportunity to accelerate the time to market for designs.

Efficient cloud processing relies on best practices

Siemens EDA worked closely with foundries, design companies, and cloud service providers to ensure a smooth transition from on-site grid systems to off-site cloud processing using core Calibre technology. Best practices enable companies to achieve maximum benefit from their transition to a “Calibre in the cloud” processing model. As IC companies increasingly look to leverage cloud capacity for faster turnaround times on advanced process node designs, they can be confident that running Calibre in the cloud provides the same sign-off verification results they know and trust, while enabling them to adjust their resource usage to best fit their business requirements and market demands.
