Japanese Users Can Adopt "Pay-as-You-Go" Licensing of ESL Modeling & Simulation Toolset CoFluent Studio through NSW Cloud Computing Infrastructure
Tokyo, Japan - JULY 2, 2010 - CoFluent Design, a leading Electronic System Level (ESL) company that provides system-level modeling and simulation to accelerate innovation in embedded devices, and NIPPON SYSTEMWARE CO., LTD. (NSW), an independent IT solution provider, today announced the launch of the "CoFluent-On-Demand" program.
CoFluent-On-Demand is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) program that aims at offering "pay-as-you-go" licensing of CoFluent Design's CoFluent Studio ESL modeling and simulation toolset to Japanese semiconductor and electronics companies. CoFluent-On-Demand relies on NSW cloud computing infrastructure that offers network access, computing and storage resources, as well as software applications to end-users. By registering to the CoFluent-On-Demand program, users can use CoFluent Studio upon their needs, at anytime, from anywhere, as software licensing is done on a per-use basis.
"The CoFluent-On-Demand program provides users a simple, immediate and flexible access to CoFluent Studio. This is a perfect complement to CoFluent Studio's yearly licensing that supports the deployment of the product in a company. This program, combined to the rich training and design services offering from CoFluent Design and its representatives, is essential to accelerate the adoption of CoFluent Studio in Japan", said Masami Yamashita, CoFluent Design's Asia-Pacific Regional Manager.
"NSW is using CoFluent Studio in its design services and recognizes the effectiveness of the tool. NSW decided to provide CoFluent Studio through its cloud computing infrastructure in order for customers to have more flexible use of the software. In addition to providing the toolset environment, NSW intends to provide total design support to meet customer's demand", said Seiich Koseki, NSW's Corporate Officer.
