Dassault Systèmes Goes Cloud with Amazon Web Services

Velizy-Villacoublay, France - Dassault Systèmes (3DS) and Amazon Web Services (AWS), an Amazon.com company, are working together to enable companies of all sizes to get started quickly with 3DS Version 6 solutions on AWS and to answer the growing demand by organizations to leverage cloud technologies to deploy, maintain, and access 3D, PLM, and solutions experiences in more flexible and efficient ways.

Dassault Systèmes provides a unique platform to run lifelike experiences, reveal smart information, enable social innovation, imagine with 3D, and structure companies' assets and operations to execute to excellence. 3DS experience platform is powered by Version 6 technologies, the foundation for 3DS brands (CATIA, SolidWorks, SIMULIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA, 3DVIA, Exalead, 3DSWYM). 3DS experience open platform delivers simple mechanisms to configure on-the-fly, extend with mash-up capabilities, and develop new applications and experiences.

3DS offers Version 6 solutions in 3DS experiences store (swym.3ds.com/#3DSstore) and on AWS to the global market, providing a preconfigured environment for companies to run 3D, PLM and lifelike experience. Version 6 online solutions are designed to adapt to the needs of organizations or projects of any scale.

Dassault Systèmes is leveraging multiple AWS services to power Version 6 platform, providing the following resources:

  • High performance and highly available compute resources: Dassault Systèmes is utilizing the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to provide discrete compute environments for each customer.
  • Geographic reach: Dassault Systèmes leverages the AWS global footprint to provide the best experience for their customers, regardless of their physical location. By leveraging AWS' Regions, Dassault Systèmes can ensure that data required to stay within a geographic boundary remains so.
  • Storage of easy-to-access design content: Using Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Dassault Systèmes can store volumes of design data without having to support an extensive array of legacy platforms. The combination of Amazon EBS and Amazon S3 allows customers to have immediate access to large storage volumes, coupled with the resiliency native to Amazon S3 for back-up purposes.

Dassault Systèmes will also provide its large community of developers with a complete online environment to deliver, monetize, and run lifelike experiences leveraging AWS. In addition, Dassault Systèmes is working to take advantage of AWS High Performance Computing Solutions to drive the most complex lifelike experiences of 3D virtual universes, and the heaviest computational workloads, such as tightly coupled parallel processes found in such domains as CFD, structural, and system-of-system simulations. Amazon HPC solutions are specifically designed to combine high compute performance with high-performance network capability.
