With Cadence® Hosted Design Solutions (HDS), you can outsource the elements of a production-grade design environment that are non-differentiating—yet critical—thereby reducing your cost and risk with proven resources and assets. Cadence HDS not only provides the infrastructure, but also a fully integrated and proven environment that leverages knowledge from across the Cadence engineering, services, and application teams. The result is a robust, streamlined flow that enables you to take advantage of all the latest design techniques and advanced product capabilities.
New Cadence HDS on the Cloud
As semiconductor designs become increasingly intricate, the compute needs of your design team become harder and harder to manage. The constraints produced by traditional datacenters—resource contention, capacity restrictions, inconsistent turnaround times, and unpredictable performance—can hinder a company’s productivity, project deadlines, and ultimately a product’s time to market. To combat these common constraints on engineering productivity, Cadence now offers HDS on the Cloud, our customizable and scalable complete cloud design environment.
Cadence HDS on the Cloud can easily scale to support your team as it grows and changes. A state-of-the-art IT and security infrastructure further ensures that the environment is always available, backed up, and protected from unauthorized access. If your design has unique requirements, or should a problem arise, the collaborative aspect of the infrastructure makes it easy for Cadence experts, regardless of location, to work together with your team.
Cloud Solution for the Semiconductor Industry
For nearly twenty years, we have deployed an advanced collaboration infrastructure (“VCAD”) to help you leverage the breadth of Cadence expertise. Now this secure, VCAD remote access capability has been combined with the cloud infrastructure optimal for the semiconductor design industry.
With HDS on the Cloud, Cadence has done the heavy cloud lifting for you. HDS on the Cloud leverages top infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environments from leading IaaS providers that have been customized to fit the unique design and resource needs of the semiconductor industry. By combining this fine-tuned IaaS infrastructure with our patented VCAD HDS environment, we have created a SaaS EDA environment that can be customized to your unique design needs.
HDS Cloud Security
Cadence HDS on the Cloud follows the Cloud Security Alliance’s recommended controls and routinely conducts independent penetration testing to proactively comply with changes in the security landscape. HDS on the Cloud also leverages world-class hosting services that have passed rigorous security certifications used around the world, including FIPS 140-2 Level 2; ISO 27001, 27017, and 27018; Department of Defense Security Requirements; and MLPS Level 3 and MTCS.
