  • PeerCache
    IC Manage PeerCache helps deliver HPC scale out with extreme file performance through peer-to-peer caching. By using peer-to-peer between multiple readers and writers, we can scale to 100’S of GB/sec of I/O throughput....

  • PeerCache utilizes a peer-to-peer cache fabric to deliver high-performance computing I/O. It is scaled out simply by adding additional peers and ensures consistent low latency and high bandwidth parallel performance, eliminating traditional storage bottlenecks. As your needs evolve, you can expand to 1000s of nodes .

    PeerCache behaves like your NFS filer, with the same high resiliency, but with full horizontal scaling. 

    The scale out architecture allows additional peers to be added in the cloud or at your remote site into your infrastructure, giving you a fully elastic cache fabric to go with your elastic compute. Because it is file based, PeerCache works with all applications in any domain.

    PeerCache speeds up your application tool I/O by 10x. It does this by creating a peer-to-peer flash cache network, typically using only 500 GB to 1 TB per node. All nodes in the compute grid then share the local data– both bare metal and virtual machines.

    By using P2P networking, PeerCache gives teams close to the 2 GB+/sec speed of NVMe storage, removing the NFS I/O bottleneck. It particularly impacts non-CPU bound jobs and interactive applications.

    PeerCache is 100% software, and will plug-and-play into existing flows.

    PeerCache takes your existing compute farm and gives you smart grid computing by sharing the flash storage.  The authoritative data is still saved to your filer, preserving your existing reliability, uptime, backup and disaster recovery.

    It offers cloud bursting and cloud caching, and abstracts any file-based database, such as MySQL and Apache.

    PeerCache presents a regular file system interface, working all your EDA tools, from physical design to RTL simulation regressions.

    PeerCache allows you to dramatically reduce your expensive NFS filer storage disk space, by eliminating the unnecessary duplication of physical copies on the filer, which contain both the common data and the meta data in each copy. PeerCache separates the common file content from the descriptive file metadata containing the file name, size, owner, group, mask, and times of creation, access and modification. Only the metadata changes and per-workspace changes require additional storage; once either of those changes are checked into the filer, the space is freed up on  PeerCache’s P2P caching networks.

    With PeerCache’s Zero-Time Sync,  you can immediately access your work files — making copies takes only seconds or minutes, vs hours.

  • PeerCache for Cloud Bursting
    With PeerCache, you run on-premise workflows identically in the cloud. PeerCache dynamically determines the exact workflow data (tools, environment & project data) — needed by any job for cloud bursting. It then projects that data into the cloud....

  • With PeerCache you can be ready for hybrid cloud bursting fast.  On-premise workflows run identically in the cloud, without retooling. PeerCache automatically and dynamically determines the exact workflow data (tools, environment & project data) needed by any job for cloud bursting. It then projects that data into the cloud.

    This delivers on-demand, high performance, elastic compute across a broad number of applications, such as IC design & verification with EDA tools that are I/O intensive.

    With Hybrid cloud bursting, application workflows continue to run with on-premise compute farms; you then can temporarily burst into a public or private cloud when your demand for computing capacity spikes. PeerCache reduces data transfer between on-premise and the cloud to the absolute minimum. It also uses a cache fabric to reduce your cloud storage requirements.

    Amazon, Google and Azure cloud services work securely and transparently. They can be scheduled in the same way as your local on-premise queues in your compute farm grid, enabling you to run overnight regressions in the cloud or on-premise with no additional effort.

  • IC Manage Global Design Platform is the semiconductor industry’s most advanced, design & IP management system.

    The system’s extreme high performance, rock-solid reliability and security, scalability, and flexibility enables company development teams to accelerate their world-wide design and verification collaboration. It enables efficient design data exchange between project managers, IP owners, chip designers, and verification teams — regardless of their location and is available in three editions: on-premise, pure cloud & hybrid.

    Design teams spend a quarter of their time managing design and IP logistics. GDP and GDP-XL improves designer efficiency and team collaboration by letting them dynamically track, control and distribute library, bug, IP, and IC/SOC/FPGA design data, including configurations and properties. All data authorized for sharing is rapidly accessible worldwide and secured.

    Both GDP-XL has the necessary IT infrastructure integration for global scalability, storage management, high availability, disaster recovery, and back-up integration.

    Multi-site Collaboration

    IC Manage GDP-XL allows tracking and viewing of what design modules different designers have checked out. It offers easy branching and merging capability, including the full project history of files or data types. Design teams find prior working versions, then restore the design to a prior working version. GDP-XL offers a unique near real-time content delivery mechanism as part of its multi-site design collaboration support. It manages the bi-directional change management between ‘parent and child’, and can automatically detect and propagate the appropriate content for any workspace in a highly reliable and maintenance-free manner.

    IP Reuse and Logistics Management

    Making an organization’s intellectual property available for reuse by all its design teams is critical for competitiveness. IC Manage GDP-XL lets development teams rapidly publish and integrate their IP into existing flows, and trace bugs and dependencies. The system allows close collaboration between project managers, IP owners, chip designers, and verification teams.  

    Managing Bug Dependencies

    GDP-XL is tightly linked with bug tracking systems, such as JIRA or Bugzilla. This integration ensures that all bugs and bug fixes associate with each design element or IP block are automatically recorded in both the bug tracking system, and in GDP-XL. Chip designers can use GDP-XL to manage bugs and their interdependencies in a bi-directional manner. The IP changes associated with the bug fixes can be viewed in the bug tracking system, and the bug history can be viewed in the IP central repository. This allows design teams to identify bugs, trace bug dependencies and propagated fixes with across all versions and designs throughout the enterprise. Chip designers can be automatically notified of new bugs that are
