Nimbix Included in Top Industry Analyst 2016 Cool Vendor List for Compute Platforms

Nimbix, a leader in cloud-based, High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure and applications, today announced it has been showcased in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the "Cool Vendors for Compute Platforms, 2016" report by Gartner, Inc. Nimbix provides customers with an innovative HPC processing platform as a Pay-per-Use or Subscription-based computing service.

The rapid adoption of containers and "software defined" abstraction from hardware, have created renewed interest in server and virtualization technology. The Cool Vendors seek to guide I&O leaders on how to assess and expand server functionality beyond traditional OSS and hypervisors.

"A growing number of organizations need the processing power of high-performance computing but often lack the infrastructure or in-house expertise to implement their workflows. The Nimbix Cloud, powered by JARVICE, provides a valuable service for these companies to accomplish computer-aided engineering (CAE), fluid dynamics, structural analysis and many other compute-intensive workloads. We are humbled that Gartner has labeled Nimbix as a Cool Vendor," said Steve Hebert, Nimbix CEO.

Nimbix's industry-proven, High-Performance Computing (HPC) innovation (JARVICE) is ideal for companies seeking to run their data processing applications "as-a-Service" in domains such as engineering simulation, real-time photorealistic rendering, machine learning, and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) for bioinformatics.

In addition, JARVICE also includes a Vault service that enable users to choose their specific requirements for storage, capacity, performance and cost, without sacrificing compatibility with existing applications and workflows. Additional key capabilities include:

  • Expanded Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) capabilities for developers and ISVs to quickly and easily onboard new applications and workflows.
  • Improved controls for enterprise security and accounting, including user "teams" and richer itemized billing.
  • Private cloud - JARVICE can be licensed for use on premises or on any managed infrastructure.
