Cadence Design Systems has launched the new Cadence OnCloud SaaS and e-commerce platform powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for companies adopting a “cloud-first” approach for design and analysis solutions that can be accessed anywhere from any device.
Building upon its well-established, comprehensive Cadence Cloud portfolio offered through Cadence-managed software-as-a-service (SaaS) and customer-managed platforms, Cadence OnCloud is the next big step in Cadence’s commitment to cloud-based solutions, easing the design process and delivering global collaboration, significant productivity, time to market and scalability benefits.
“Since the beginning of our Annapurna Labs journey, we have been following a cloud-first approach,” said Nafea Bshara, Vice President and distinguished engineer at Amazon Web Services. “We have worked with Cadence for many years, using their tools in the Amazon cloud. The move to a consumption-based SaaS solution is a natural next step. The new business model of the Cadence OnCloud SaaS and e-commerce platform offers a great way to expedite project execution by having customers use Cadence’s Sigrity, Clarity and Celsius solvers and Allegro technology at scale. With its consumption-based model, Cadence OnCloud offers the flexibility, accessibility and scalability user’s demand.”
“As the industry leader in cloud-based solutions, we continue to innovate and respond to user needs, and the Cadence OnCloud SaaS and e-commerce platform, with a consumption-based usage model, expands our reach into the systems space by providing tens of thousands of existing and potential customers with instantaneous access to our technology, delivering more accessibility, higher productivity and instant scalability leveraging AWS,” said Anirudh Devgan, President and CEO of Cadence. “Together with Cadence’s widely adopted CloudBurst SaaS solution, Cadence now has the industry’s broadest SaaS portfolio catering to the needs of our customers from chips to systems.”
“Cadence OnCloud is an industry game-changer with a suite of PCB/package design tools available anywhere, anytime at the click of the browser. With Cadence managing software installation, upgrades and licensing, enables us to focus on the design and problem-solving. The cloud paradigm also helps to scale and tailor compute needs based on the problem. Besides these, it enables seamless collaboration with different teams and external partners across the globe,” said Jayaprakash Balachandran, senior technical leader, Hardware Engineering, Cisco Systems, Inc.
“AWS has worked closely with Cadence during the development of the Cadence OnCloud SaaS and e-commerce platform, which provides our mutual customers near-instant access to advanced system analysis and design solutions with the flexibility, performance and accessibility of AWS Cloud,” said Ian Colle, GM HPC and Batch Computing, AWS. “We are committed to working with Cadence to help deliver a secure, efficient and high-performing environment for Cadence OnCloud customers.”
The new e-commerce platform is an industry first, offering instantaneous access to purchase and deploy products in minutes and already has thousands of early users.
Cadence OnCloud is targeted for those with limited infrastructure or resources and offers comprehensive support options, including self-help and a broad range of SaaS delivery options addressing global demands and peak usage.
