Igneous Data Workflow Forum | EDA and High-Tech Manufacturing

The Data Science of EDA Acceleration

A typical EDA workflow is extremely file-centric and can involve creating, editing, and deleting millions of files. Add in concurrent workflows, and there can be billions of files in TBs of data, all rapidly changing. A challenge in these environments is protecting this data. Igneous helps customers scan, index, and move billions of files. 

During this Data Workflow Forum, Ravi Poddar, Ph.D., the Director of HPC and EDA Solutions for Pure Storage, and Christian Smith, VP of Product Management at Igneous, will discuss how modern data management solutions can accelerate EDA workflows by 25%.

During this exclusive event, you will:

  • Explore how you can optimize your infrastructure to accelerate EDA workflows
  • Learn how Broadcom has successfully implemented Pure Storage and Igneous solutions to reduce time to market on chip design
  • Discover how to optimize EDA concurrency with Pure Storage FlashBlade
  • Build a strategy to manage and protect billions of EDA files both on-premises and in the cloud
  • Learn how to leverage cloud, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform, for EDA archive workflows

Drinks and small bites will be provided.
