    • Idea toEntrepreneurship March 10, 2012
    • About Nimbix • Startup High Performance Computing Infrastructure Company • HPC Datacenter in downtown Dallas • Hardware-accelerated servers with FPGA and GPU technology • Founding team with background in computing and datacenter operationsMIT Enterprise Forum, March 10, 2012
    • Founders Steve Hebert: Technical Sales & Marketing • Built and developed teams in technology industry over 18 years • Strong track record of sales growth both startup and large companies: Texas Instruments; Altera Corporation; CEO, Industryview.com Rob Sherrard: Service Delivery • More than 13 years designing, building and scaling massive datacenters • Led several startup builds through hyper-growth while maintaining service deliveryMIT Enterprise Forum, March 10, 2012
    • Imagine if . . . Biologists at MD Anderson could assemble genome data in one day versus five Radiologists could process images in minutes versus hours Geophysicists could image and characterize deep wells over a weekendMIT Enterprise Forum, March 10, 2012
    • The Nimbix Solution • Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud – “Low-click, Pay-per-use” Supercomputing – Uses hardware accelerator technology: GPU, FPGA – Accelerated Applications – Automated, Optimized • How does Nimbix solve the problem? – Reduces processing time – shortens “Time-to-Results” – Eliminates infrastructure costs – Increase the rate of discoveryMIT Enterprise Forum, March 10, 2012
    • Cloud Processing WorkflowsUser submits job via web application: • Cloud resources to serve applications in bioinformatics, energy, graphics, rendering, computational science Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud • Hardware accelerated platforms Route jobs, configure resources • Web-based workflows, Compute Nodes Compute Nodes work-load management, Graphics Reconfigurable multi-tenant, or dedicated Processors Accelerators machines
    • Launching Apps with Nimbix User selects desired application from cloud portal Advanced options for the application are selected For multi-step apps, workflow options are selected Input files automatically uploaded from remote endMIT Enterprise Forum, March 10, 2012
    • Value of a Nimbix cloud service • Faster data processing = shorter time to results • Increased processing volume and capacity • Improved workflow • Reduced operating costs • No upfront equipment investmentMIT Enterprise Forum, March 10, 2012
    • Idea to Entrepreneurship
