The Fortissimo Marketplace is now open for business.

Fortissmo lowers the barriers for industrial users to access HPC-based simulation by offering the benefits of the cloud computing model (such as pay-per-use), together with support for first time users. Making HPC simulation more accessible to SMEs will increase their competitiveness - one of the key goals of the I4MS programme that supports Fortissimo.

The Marketplace will be the one-stop-shop for finding these services. After a lot of work to design and implement the initial set of features, the Marketplace went public last month as we started to add services. As more features and services are added the Marketplace will grow and ultimately become self sustaining.

There will be an opportunity to learn more about the Fortissimo Marketplace at the ISC Cloud and Big Data Conference, where Fortissimo is jointly organising a workshop "HPC Cloud Solutions for Manufacturing" with the cloudSME and cloudflow projects. The hands-on workshop will show you the benefits of implementing your software solution onto a HPC-based cloud platform and how you can achieve that.
