EDEM offers Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulation software for virtual testing of equipment that processes bulk solid materials in the mining, construction, and other industrial sectors. EDEM software has been available on Rescales ScaleX platform since July 2016. Richard LaRoche, CEO of EDEM commented: "The introduction of the EDEM GPU solver has made a key impact on our customers' productivity by enabling them to run larger simulations faster. Our partnership with Rescale means more users will be able to harness the power of the EDEM engine by accessing the market's latest GPUs through Rescale's cloud platform."
The addition of an integrated GPU solver to Rescale gives users shorter time-to-answer and enables a deeper impact on design innovation. To Rescale, the addition of EDEM's GPU solver also signals a strengthening partnership. Rescales GPUs are the cutting edge of compute hardware, and EDEM is ahead of the curve in optimizing their software to leverage GPU capabilities. We are proud to be their partner of choice to bring this forward-thinking simulation solution to the cloud, bringing HPC within easy reach of engineers everywhere", said Rescale CEO Joris Poort.
