Doing EDA in the Cloud ? Yes, it’s possible !
David Marshall - eSilicon Corp., San Jose, CA Guilhem Tesseyre - Google, Inc., San Francisco, CA
We often hear that the EDA industry is not yet ready for cloud, and this comment usually comes with a couple objections about the nature of cloud-native technologies. However, cloud seems like the ideal place to run chip designs: flexible compute resources available on-demand, almost infinite storage and pricing structure adapted to avoid cost for idle resources.
Some trailblazers in that space like eSilicon have realized this early on and embarked on a journey to cloud to leverage its elasticity, performance, cost models and open the door to a new level of innovation in the EDA industry.
Join us in this presentation to hear about that journey, the steps which were taken, the bumps along the road which needed to be solved and the building blocks that are part of that solution.
