What is Trusted Silicon Stratus?

Nimbis Services develops and operates a secure Trusted Silicon Stratus, a collaborative cloud platform and marketplace specifically supporting the trusted and assured microelectronics life-cycle for the Department of Defense and aerospace defense contractor community and is an approved microelectronics cloud platform. It provides a secure cloud service for government agencies to design integrated circuits for electronic weaponry in a private cloud community.

Beforehand, many engineers had independent silos on desktop computing, long wait times for software to be installed and licensed, low compute capacities and so forth. There were also many acute vulnerabilities to the microelectronics lifecycle that put the industry in major jeopardy of data comprises.

Now, the Trusted Silicon Stratus cloud software platform product addresses the cyber-security concerns of the DoD and aerospace communities by tightly integrating with vulnerability, risk assessment and data provenance tracking tools such as block chain. There are multiple security levels for accessing the Trusted Silicon Stratus. For a more detailed look at the service offerings please visit this link.

As a cloud “agnostic” provider, Trusted Silicon Stratus can work with any cloud service provider, hosted namely Amazon Web Services, IBM Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Since Trusted Silicon Stratus is a neutral cloud services broker, there are far-ranging capabilities like communities of interest for libraries, APP workflows, IP and diverse data – all which are uninhibited by existing IT silos or insufficient IT cloud expertise.

What’s behind Trusted Silicon Stratus?

With a log in and a few clicks, users can work on a virtual machine and get busy with their chip design functions. Users manage desktop settings from a web dashboard. They use tools that are embedded in the web browser to start a simulation, come back later, and the server will be there working. Trusted Silicon Stratus is managed and shared in design repositories.

Another great aspect to Trusted Silicon Stratus is collaboration. Managers can setup multiple organizations or teams within their account and the teams are invited by email. Organizations can share a common pool of resources with user-level access controls.
