UberCloud and GNS Systems announce strategic partnership 

Press release, January 2021

Braunschweig, Germany, and Los Altos, California – January 25, 2021 – GNS Systems GmbH and The UberCloud Inc. are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic partnership, combining GNS’ industry leading HPC integration expertise and consulting services with UberCloud’s world class HPC container technology and ubiquitous Engineering Simulation Platform.

The partnership focuses on cloud services for more efficient engineering simulations in CAE, data analytics, digital twins, and machine learning. GNS Systems as HPC integrator and UberCloud as specialist for HPC software containers both address virtual product development in manufacturing companies. The core benefit for simulation engineers: to realize "Cloud-HPC as a Service" quickly and cost-efficiently. The partners are therefore focusing on container technology for the automation of CAE workloads.

Christopher Woll, Managing Director of GNS Systems, is convinced of the joint strategy: "We are currently observing how the virtualization of work processes in engineering is rapidly accelerating. And this is increasingly taking place in the cloud." Through the partnership with UberCloud, GNS Systems is leveraging significant know-how synergies: The HPC specialist has been on the market for more than 20 years and has also been offering Cloud HPC for several years. Wolfgang Gentzsch, president and co-founder of UberCloud, agrees: "With GNS Systems, we gain a strong, globally active partner that optimally complements UberCloud in the market on the topic of CAE application management and thus enables a joint, fully automated simulation environment for development engineers. On this basis, we will offer first-class cloud-based software and services together in the future."

UberCloud will provide its powerful container based Engineering Simulation Platform and containerized application lifecycle management (CALM) for the joint solution. GNS Systems, using its JGen and lEYEcense application management software solutions, ensures rapid deployment and smooth operation of the CAE environment in the cloud. All solutions are uniformly provided on an automated self-service platform. The combination with HPC
containers from UberCloud ensures the greatest possible flexibility and scalability of resources - with low complexity and low costs.

UberCloud – Engineering Simulation Plattform

UUberCloud's goal is to enable engineers to access, use and benefit from enormous computing capacity in the simplest way possible in the cloud. Unlike traditional corporate-owned computing silos and their high capital and operating costs, UberCloud helps companies in Manufacturing, Life Sciences, Energy, Finance and Insurance to seamlessly integrate high performance computing (HPC) into their 'cloud-first' strategy, with UberCloud’s Engineering Simulation Platform and HPC containers for CAE, Big Data Analytics, Digital Twins, Machine Learning applications. This will enable engineers to work on their complex simulation workflows from anywhere in a familiar way. 

UberCloud was founded in June 2014 and has been recognized and awarded multiple times internationally by Gartner, IDC, 451 Research and HPCwire as a pioneer in 'Technical Computing as a Service' for its UberCloud Engineering Simulation Platform and the CAE Containers.
