Fujitsu and ESI Group partner to develop service-oriented solutions

ESI Group : 05 October, 2005  (New Product)
Fujitsu Systems Europe and ESI Group's (ESIN FR0004110310) announce a partnership to extend the validation of ESI's world-leading applied mechanics technology with the SynfiniWay service-oriented platform for collaborative computing from Fujitsu. The first validation of SynfiniWay with ESI Group products was made with the PAM-CRASH application for crash simulation, a solution that has been deployed in production through the joint pay-per-use Application Service Provider business with Fujitsu Systems Europe. End-users connect to the ASP site using a SynfiniWay client interface, which ensures complete run-time security of the compute servers and manages the automatic transfer and encryption of data between the server and desktop machine. Initial clients for this PAM-CRASH ASP include automotive manufacturers and sub-contractors wishing to benefit from access to peak-load capacity or scalable systems to solve larger problems.
Fujitsu Systems Europe and ESI Group's (ESIN FR0004110310) announce a partnership to extend the validation of ESI's world-leading applied mechanics technology with the SynfiniWay service-oriented platform for collaborative computing from Fujitsu.

End-users connect to the ASP site using a SynfiniWay client interface, which ensures complete run-time security of the compute servers and manages the automatic transfer and encryption of data between the server and desktop machine. Initial clients for this PAM-CRASH ASP include automotive manufacturers and sub-contractors wishing to benefit from access to peak-load capacity or scalable systems to solve larger problems.

An ASP model is only one implementation of SynfiniWay, where the client connects to an external managed facility. SynfiniWay can go much further to be deployed entirely within the organization, to connect machines in the same site or separate locations, or to form a collaboration platform between companies. Among present customers we find implementations that include resource pooling across a physically dispersed organization to increase aggregate utilization, standardization of the end-user interface for local heterogeneous systems, and meta-scheduling of workflows for optimized process turnaround. These adaptable solutions can be installed easily and quickly without disrupting the existing infrastructure.

SynfiniWay is founded on a service-oriented architecture programming model, and provides the global task management layer between the end-user and dispersed computing resources. SynfiniWay services virtualize a networked computing infrastructure allowing the tasks to execute anywhere, from desktops to remote servers, with the same robust end-user view. Services are then linked in workflows to encode and create innovative engineering business processes through versatile logical and data dependencies; a potent mechanism for automated connectivity along the application value chain.

Vincent Chaillou, President and Chief Operating Officer, Product Operations ESI Group explains that 'ESI Group is engaging into a new phase of its long-term partnership with Fujitsu that started with the validation of ESI Group solutions on Fujitsu high performance computers. Today, the same quest to deliver high value products and services to our customers leads us to validate the SynfiniWay middleware that will enable flexible access to PAM-CRASH and the Virtual Try-Out Space. This software layer is an essential element to increase customer's confidence in the ASP model and ensure the growth of this new delivery mode.'

'Process innovation is a key benefit from SynfiniWay.' adds Naoya Tamura, CEO of Fujitsu Systems Europe, 'Through the workflow control of virtualized services, new engineering business processes can be created that are independent of the underlying compute and network layer. The validation partnership for ESI Group products will ensure that SynfiniWay services comply with the application interface and method. Our mutual customers can then be assured of a reliable and robust combined solution for industrial production.'

SynfiniWay can be purchased directly from Fujitsu Systems Europe, and is being demonstrated during the EuroPAM 2005 conference on digital simulation for virtual engineering during October 5-7 in Potsdam, Germany.
