Tipping the scale in favor of a massive on-premise compute farm is becoming more difficult.
The breadth of cloud capabilities and improvements in cost and licensing structures is prompting chipmakers to consider offloading at least some of their design work into the cloud.
Cloud is a viable business today for semiconductor design. Over the past decade, the interest in moving to cloud computing has grown from an idea that was fun to talk about — but which no one was serious about implementing — to a trustworthy, secure, and increasingly attractive option for many compute applications….
