Rescale and Remcom Bring NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Electromagnetic Simulation to the Cloud

New Partnership Provides XFdtd Users an Hourly Licensing Option on
Rescale’s ScaleX Platform

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rescale and Remcom are pleased to announce that XFdtd®, Remcom’s
electromagnetic (EM) simulation software, is now available on Rescale’s
ScaleX platform for HPC in the cloud, allowing engineers to quickly and
easily run complex, high-fidelity EM simulation models from any web

XFdtd is a finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) EM solver that is
capable of handling large simulations with a minimal amount of RAM and
processing them quickly using NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs).
The partnership brings XFdtd’s capabilities to the Rescale cloud
platform, giving engineers pay-as-you-go access to Rescale’s global
multi-cloud HPC network of over 100 data centers worldwide.
High-capacity users can scale out to thousands of cores and choose
hardware configurations optimized to the requirements of XFdtd, with
options ranging from economical HPC configurations to cutting-edge bare
metal systems, low-latency InfiniBand interconnect, and the latest
NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators. The partnership delivers the combined
advantage of GPU acceleration and virtually unlimited scaling to EM
applications such as automotive radar, biomedical, mobile devices, 5G
MIMO and more.

Michael Hicks, Director of Business Development for Remcom, said of the
partnership, “Remcom has been a pioneer in leveraging high-performance
computing to greatly speed EM simulations, offering one of the first
GPU-accelerated solutions in the EM software market. By utilizing
Rescale’s cloud platform for HPC, our customers will enjoy instant
access to NVIDIA’s state-of-the-art GPUs, driving development times down
even further. This is yet another way we are helping customers to save
time and money and deliver their products to market faster.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with Remcom,” said Joris Poort,
CEO at Rescale. “We believe that Remcom users will benefit from the
fast, flexible, secure, and huge on-demand resources that Rescale can
bring to computationally demanding tools, such as electromagnetic

“NVIDIA has proven experience accelerating EM simulations, one of the
fastest growing domains in the industry,” said Baskar Rajagopalan,
senior strategic alliances and marketing manager at NVIDIA. “Rescale
users will now be able to benefit from NVIDIA GPUs in the cloud to
achieve faster and more accurate results from computationally intensive
