IC DESIGN AND EDA

Storage Solutions for Higher Education

For IC design and EDA companies, meeting tight schedules for analysis, design and production directly impact company revenues. With multiple design teams across many time zones, IP blocks are often shared making high concurrent access and synchronization an ongoing challenge. New software tools and changing workflows have an unpredictable impact on the need for storage.

We’ve engineered the complexity out of storage to offer a storage platform that’s simple to install, manage and scale. Whether it’s reducing verification run time by fifty percent on a 300M gate ASIC, accelerating development of next-generation 90 nm chips, or archiving project data, EMC Isilon has proven solutions to meet the needs of IC Design and EDA companies.

The EMC Isilon scale-out NAS platform helps reduce turn-around time on product development with storage that is highly scalable, high performance and simple to manage.
