Smart Manufacturing: CAE as a Service, On Demand, in the Cloud
Wolfgang Gentzsch, Uber Cloud

The benefits for small and medium size businesses (SMBs) of using High Performance Technical Computing (HPTC) within their design and development processes can be huge. However, the vast majority of SMBs perform virtual prototyping or large-scale data modeling still on their desktop computers. But because of the well-known limitations of these systems, many companies can't solve more sophisticated application problem, in shorter time.Therefore, most of these companies have a real need for additional HPTC.

In this presentation we will discuss two options for SMEs for acquiring additional HPTC power: buying an HPTC server or using cloud computing. Both options come with great benefits, but also with some challenges. We will present an overview of the status and trend of HPTC in the Cloud for digital manufacturing SMBs. And we will look at the reasons why we believe the acceptance of HPTC in the Cloud will strongly increase in the nearfuture, especially for digital manufacturing. Finally, we will provide an outlookon how the UberCloud Experiments can accelerate the process of go-to-market anduser acceptance of this new computing paradigm, and close with a few real-lifehands-on case studies of CAE in the Cloud.


We have received a phenomenal response to our call for presentation and would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who submitted an abstract. Some of the abstracts accepted for presentation at the conference are detailed below.

Wofgang Gentzsch
Founder of Uber Cloud

Wolfgang Gentzsch is president and co-founder of the UberCloud Community and Market place for engineers and scientists to discover, try, and buy computing on demand, in the cloud. And he is the Chairman of the International ISC Cloud Conference series. Previously, he was Advisor to the EU projects EUDAT and DEISA, directed the German D-Grid Initiative, and was a member of the Board of Directors of the Open Grid Forum, and of the US President's Council of Advisors for Science and Technology, PCAST.

Before, Wolfgang was a professor of compute science and mathematics at several universities in the US and Germany, and held leading positions at the North Carolina Grid and Data Center in Durham, Sun Microsystems in California, the DLR German Aerospace Center in Gottingen, and the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasmaphysics in Munich. In the 90s, he founded HPC software companies Genias and Gridware. The latter, which has been acquired by Sun Microsystems in 2000, developed the well-known distributed cluster workload and management system Grid Engine.
