eSilicon Chooses Univa to Manage Complex ASIC Chip Designs for High-Bandwidth Networking, High-Performance Computing, AI and 5G Infrastructure Applications

Sponsored by Businesswire

Univa®, a leading innovator in enterprise-grade workload management and
optimization solutions for on-premise and hybrid cloud high-performance
computing (HPC), today announced that eSilicon selected Univa’s Grid
Engine® enterprise-class workload scheduling and optimization solution
to help manage its complex FinFET ASIC and IP designs and scale its
environment, as well as better manage its ever-increasing workload and
demand for capacity.

is an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) developer that
designs and produces high-end chips and semiconductor IP. The company
delivers complex integrated circuits that help power hardware in
industries such as 5G infrastructure, networking and artificial
intelligence. To handle this level of complexity and scale, they looked
to Univa’s Grid Engine platform to create a more efficient environment
where all resources are optimized. Working with Univa helped eSilicon
gain maximum utilization of their compute infrastructure and licenses,
which can translate to more analysis and verification that can be run
and therefore create a higher chance to achieve first-time-right silicon.

“Given our intricate electronic design needs, we were looking for a
workload scheduling and optimization solution that could help us
maximize our throughput and performance of our applications,” said Naidu
Annamaneni, chief information officer and vice president of Global IT at
eSilicon. “We ultimately chose Univa Grid Engine, since it was able to
better help our team optimize our shared resources and provide
enterprise-grade dependability to help us improve ROI and deliver better
results. As we look to extend our workloads to the cloud, we look
forward to working with Univa to start the cloud migration process along
with Google Cloud’s service-on-demand model.”

Univa Grid Engine helped eSilicon manage its complex ASIC design
workloads automatically, maximize shared resources and accelerate the
execution of any container, application or service. The solution can be
deployed in any technology environment: on-premise, hybrid cloud or
cloud-native HPC. With Univa Grid Engine, workloads are efficiently
shared across machines in a datacenter to optimize the use of the
computing infrastructure. Scheduling policies can be applied to all work
submitted to the cluster, ensuring high-priority jobs are completed on
time, while simultaneously maintaining maximum utilization of all
cluster machines. Along with Navops Launch, Grid Engine can dynamically
schedule workload to a hybrid cloud.

“In the highly competitive business of electronic design, getting to
market quickly is paramount,” said Gary Tyreman, president and CEO of
Univa. “Engineers are under extreme pressure to design, test and deliver
accurate results in tight timeframes. Univa’s solutions are designed to
help solve these challenges and help companies like eSilicon deliver
products and results faster, more efficiently and with lower overall
costs. Our Univa Grid Engine platform was designed to support the unique
requirements of an EDA environment, from providing a framework to
optimize the utilization of computing infrastructure to the details of
interacting with the EDA licensing. Additionally, the Univa team has
strong backgrounds in the technology that powers many EDA environments
that, when combined with our unparalleled ability to optimize workloads
along with our management capabilities for virtual and cloud
environments, is unmatched.”
