Develop a Commercial Turnkey HPC Solution
Foundational studies of desktop-bound technical computing users, referred to as the “missing-middle” of the High Performance Computing (HPC) market, have identified the lack of simple software, limited access to technical talent, and difficulty in estimating the return on investment (ROI) as critical challenges in the adoption of HPC among small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The complexity and rigid organizational structure of these tools are a mismatch for companies that traditionally rely on shared “tribal knowledge” and follow an “artisan process” of physical experimentation rather than digital simulation.
The proposed solution is to develop a commercial a turnkey HPC solution that enables an “artisan process” of digital experimentation more appropriate for the “missing middle” manufacturing. Nimbis Services will partner with the University of Southern California to develop a turnkey HPC service for small and medium-sized engineering and manufacturing firms based on Wolfram Research recently released component flow based SystemModeler and Mathematica for interactive visualization and statistical analysis hosted on the Nimbis ecommerce on-demand technical computing “marketplace”.
