The launch of Cadence Design Systems Cloud Passport Partner Program aims to give customers a proven and easier path to the cloud when their internal IT teams desire assistance. Cadence has engaged with program members to ensure they are knowledgeable and proficient at deploying Cadence tools in cloud-based electronic design environments.
Customers managing their own cloud environments using the Cadence Cloud Passport model now have the option to get support from Cadence-authorised cloud enablement providers to accelerate cloud adoption for chip design projects.
Inaugural members include commercial partners Rescale, Scala Computing and Nimbis Services, as well as academic partners CMC Microsystems and EUROPRACTICE.
Customers using the Cadence Cloud Passport model often have significant investments in on-premises IT and CAD infrastructure and also need to deploy and customise their own cloud-based design environments.
Moving to the cloud often requires new knowledge and capabilities that not every company possesses, which leads to delays and unplanned spending.
Recognising this gap, Cadence has recruited and qualified cloud enablement companies with experience and capabilities to make the move to a customized cloud environment much easier.
Commercial customers benefit from a broad range of solutions and support options, while academic users gain a new method for deploying and maintaining their design environments.
The Cloud Passport Partner Program offers customers Faster cloud deployments, support for complex design environments and access to specialised solutions for collaboration.
In addition to commercial organisations realizing the potential of the cloud in electronics, the Cadence Academic Network, which promotes the use of Cadence technology by universities and research institutions around the globe, is collaborating with CMC Microsystems and EUROPRACTICE to further cloud adoption in academia.
“Our approach is to remove barriers to cloud adoption, enabling companies and organisations of all sizes and types to perform electronic design tasks faster and easier than ever before,” said Craig Johnson, vice president of Cloud Business Development at Cadence.
