This enables IC designers to quickly and securely move proprietary files - which can exceed 10 gigabytes in size - to the Nefelus cloud platform, where they can access powerful third-party tools to accelerate semiconductor and chip design projects.
IC design companies play a critical role developing the computer chips that power everything from enterprise servers to mobile devices. However, upfront technology and infrastructure investments in the latest design tools, as well as access to scalable computing power to support intensive design work, present a difficult challenge for these companies to stay competitive in the market. The combination of Nefelus and Aspera helps solve these challenges with cloud-based tools and scalable computing resources supported by Aspera's high speed transfer of large files between design teams.
With Aspera On Demand, designers now have a simple and secure way to deliver large files to the Nefelus platform from anywhere in the world while reducing transfer times by up to 99 percent. Once on the Nefelus platform, designers have access to leading Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools in a managed cloud environment. Nefelus also allows users to take advantage of high-performance computing capacity for intensive design tasks with advanced collaboration capabilities that make it easier for global teams to connect and share knowledge to fuel innovation.
For example, a designer can access the Nefelus web portal and upload their design files with Aspera's Connect Web Browser Plug-in. Once the transfer is complete, designers can select from a full library of design tools provided by third-party vendors in the Nefelus marketplace and work on the project with team members around the world. Once the work is complete, the designer initiates a fast and secure download via Aspera to transfer the output files back to a local system.
'The combination of Nefelus' innovative cloud platform and Aspera's high speed transfer technology is changing how IC designers and organizations can collaborate across long distances,' said
'Nefelus is a great example of the type of industry transformation that Aspera enables,' said
