Is Cloud Computing Really So Difficult?

We hear all the time that cloud computing skills are in tremendous demand and supply of good talent just can’t keep up.  The perception is that cloud computing, while hot, is difficult enough that it needs specialists to design, implement, and even deploy services for...

Scaling HPC Applications

Last week we presented our latest Compute30™ webinar focused on scaling HPC applications… We began with the premise that increasing performance of HPC applications in today’s world is about scalability across cores and nodes, not just pure algorithmic...

Running ANSYS in the Cloud (Pt. 2)

This posting is a follow up to my previous blog post Running ANSYS in the Cloud. In that previous post I shared Nimbix has created a Portal just for our ANSYS users. It operates very similar to our NACC Portal where we offer several other pre-configured applications...
