2016 Winner Profile

Cadence Design Systems

Project Description:
As a leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) and semiconductor IP, Cadence Design Systems has unique high performance computing system requirements. Both the hardware and security required to fulfill those needs are significantly more robust than the more general purpose computing utilized by most businesses. This has recently motivated the technology company to look to the cloud for their future computing needs. Cadence chose to use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host their systems as well as six different security products from five companies in order to insure the AWS architecture is not compromised. By leveraging the public cloud, and utilizing multiple layers of security capabilities, Cadence IT has helped the business to operate more efficiently and improve the performance of their product teams allowing them to continue enabling the design and creation of today's integrated circuits and electronics.
