## The Semiconductor Industry’s Adoption of High-Performance Computing for Innovation

The semiconductor industry has become indispensable in various sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services. To keep up with the growing demand for semiconductors, electronic design automation (EDA) tools have become crucial. However, to drive innovation at scale, EDA leaders require substantial computing power. This is where high-performance computing (HPC) in the cloud comes into play.

IBM Cloud® HPC offers organizations the capability to manage peak workloads effectively and minimize the risk of downtime. As the industry increasingly adopts generative artificial intelligence (AI) and large language models (LLM) for enhanced productivity, there is a growing need for high levels of compute power. Hybrid cloud HPC solutions are proving to be particularly valuable in addressing these requirements.

### Cadence leverages IBM Cloud HPC

Cadence, a prominent EDA leader with over 30 years of experience in computational software, is an example of a company benefiting from IBM Cloud HPC. With a high demand for compute resources due to the incorporation of AI and machine learning into its EDA processes, Cadence requires a significant amount of compute power. Therefore, a hybrid cloud approach has enabled Cadence to seamlessly shift workloads between on-premises and the cloud, providing the agility, flexibility, and security required to meet these demands.

### The role of a hybrid cloud solution for HPC

Cadence’s hybrid, multicloud approach, including IBM Cloud HPC, has allowed it to develop its chip and system design software faster and at scale. By leveraging IBM Cloud as part of its multicloud environment and IBM LSF® as the HPC workload scheduler, Cadence has achieved high-compute utilization, optimized its cloud budget, and streamlined computational workloads. This has led to improved performance and faster time to value, benefiting the company’s strategic R&D work.

### Get started with IBM Cloud HPC

As enterprises seek to address their most complex challenges, IBM Cloud HPC provides an integrated solution across critical components of compute, network, storage, and security. It includes security and controls built into the platform to help clients consume HPC as a managed service while addressing third- and fourth-party risks. Additionally, IBM Storage Scale complements IBM Cloud HPC, offering a globally integrated solution designed to manage and move data across hybrid environments in a cost-effective manner for implementing HPC workloads in real-time.
