TÜBINGEN, Germany, and LOS ALTOS, California, Feb. 04, 2021 – NI SP GmbH and The UberCloud Inc. are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic partnership, combining NI SP’s industry leading 3D VDI and High Performance Computing (HPC) Solutions with UberCloud’s ubiquitous HPC container technology and its Engineering Simulation Cloud Platform. The partnership focuses on cloud services for more efficient and productive engineering simulations in CAE, LifeSciences, Oil&Gas, big data analytics, digital twins, and machine learning.
NI SP, as a specialist in remote 3D VDI and HPC environments, and UberCloud, as specialist for engineering simulation software containers, address virtual product design and development in manufacturing. The partners are focusing on cloud technologies and services for the automation of CAE and other HPC workloads with the aim of providing “HPC as a Service”, quickly and cost-efficiently.
Karsten Gaier, CEO of NI SP, is convinced about the joint strategy: “Our Remote 3D Visualization technologies offer very attractive use cases in the private and public cloud. The leading NICE DCV Remote 3D solution is leveraged in many different scenarios in CAE/CAD, Oil&Gas, Life Sciences, Research, and other application areas, providing high-end remote 3D desktop access to UberCloud’s Engineering Simulation Platform.” Wolfgang Gentzsch, president and co-founder of UberCloud, agrees: “With NI SP, we gain a strong, globally active partner that optimally complements UberCloud in the engineering simulation market on the topic of CAE application management and thus enables a joint, fully automated self-service simulation environment for product design and development engineers. On this basis, we will offer first-class cloud-based software and services together in the future.”
UberCloud will contribute its fully automated and self-service Engineering Simulation Cloud Platform and its huge repository of engineering simulation software containers for software from Altair, Ansys, Dassault, Numeca, Siemens, and many others. NI SP, with the industry leading 3D VDI solution NICE DCV ensures rapid remote access and data transfer between the user’s desktop and UberCloud’s engineering simulation cloud platform. The combination with HPC containers from UberCloud ensures the greatest possible flexibility and scalability of resources – with zero complexity and low costs.

UberCloud – Engineering Simulation Platform
UberCloud’s goal is to enable engineers to access, use and benefit from enormous computing capacity in the simplest way possible in the cloud. Unlike traditional corporate-owned computing silos and their high capital and operating costs, UberCloud helps companies in Manufacturing, Life Sciences, Energy, Finance and Insurance to seamlessly integrate high performance computing (HPC) into their ‘cloud-first’ strategy, with UberCloud’s Engineering Simulation Platform and HPC containers for CAE, Big Data Analytics, Digital Twins, Machine Learning applications. This will enable engineers to work on their complex simulation workflows from anywhere in a familiar way.
UberCloud was founded in June 2014 and has been recognized and internationally awarded multiple times by Gartner, IDC, 451 Research and HPCwire as a pioneer in ‘Technical Computing as a Service’ for its UberCloud Engineering Simulation Platform and CAE Containers
