News After 18 months of developing Docker container technology into sophisticated containers for engineering and scientific applications, UberCloud announces the availability of high performance application containers on its online UberCloud Marketplace, for ANSYS Mechanical, Fluent, CFX, Workbench, Icepak, EM, LS-DYNA and LS-PrePost, for CD-adapco STAR-CCM+, and for OpenFOAM, with many more in the pipeline.

These application containers are portable between in-house and cloud environments and allow seamless and transparent on-demand access to applications and data in the cloud, with a look and feel identical to your workstation.

Wolfgang Gentzsch, President of UberCloud emphasizes that UberCloud Containers are ready-to-execute packages of software: “These packages are designed to deliver the tools that the CFD engineer needs to complete his task in hand. The ISV or Open Source tools are pre-installed, configured, and tested, and can be run on bare metal, without loss of performance that hypervisors create.

The UberCloud Container technology allows wide variety and selection for the engineers because they are portable from workstation to workstation, server to server, Cloud to Cloud. The Cloud operators or IT departments no longer need to limit the variety, since they no longer have to install, tune and maintain the underlying software themselves. They can rely on the UberCloud Containers to cut through this complexity.

This technology also provides hardware abstraction, where the container is not tightly coupled with the server (the container and the software inside isn’t installed on the server in the traditional sense). Burak Yenier, CEO of UberCloud said: “Abstraction between the hardware and software stacks provides the ease of use and agility that bare metal environments lack.”
