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.
