Design tool vendors, especially in the verification space, are starting to roll out cloud-based solutions. Cloud computing offers faster results, unlimited capacity during peak demand, elasticity to scale with that demand, and reduced capital expenditures.
As recently as five years ago, engineers did their personal banking and purchased almost everything online but wouldn’t consider loading their chip designs into the cloud.
Clouds are forming over the electronic product design ecosystem and finally rolling through, offering viable choices for on-demand, high-performance computing without the investment of capital and human resources traditionally needed to manage a captive server farm. The change in mindset of chip design and verification engineers is nothing short of remarkable and well worth exploring why.
