nClouds AWS Case Study | Efabless
Efabless, founded in April 2014, is the world’s first fabless electronics company to combine crowdsourcing with open community innovation. It has applied that concept to all aspects of analog and mixed-signal Integrated Circuit (IC) and Intellectual Property (IP) development and commercialization. Efabless serves as a marketplace for innovators by connecting a global community of skilled chip designers with a global community of customers. Its mission is to simplify the process of smart product creation and make it available to everyone. To learn more, go to https://www.efabless.com/
Improved performance efficiency and scalability
Efabless had just received angel funding and wanted to modernize its Open Galaxy IC design platform to support future business growth.
“I could not be happier with nClouds. They worked hard to build a solid infrastructure on AWS that’s working as planned — we couldn’t have accomplished this without them.”
Efabless wanted to modernize Open Galaxy EDA — an open, integrated design implementation platform with best-in-class tools for advanced integrated circuit (IC) design — to better support its fast-growth business. They required custom scaling for the underlying infrastructure and a more robust monitoring system across all layers of the infrastructure.
The existing workload consisted of two main applications: a static content and marketplace application deployed on AWS Elastic Beanstalk (with 15 services), and an IC design platform running EDA software on Amazon EC2 Linux machines. It was challenging to manage and scale, and was performing compute-heavy tasks (such as simulation) on the machine itself, causing an adverse effect on the current design session.
