"Scilab, a leading software provider in the world of open numerical computation, is making computer simulation accessible to new areas of science. But this is often a complex process when it uses very large-scale computing resources. As part of the partnership between Bull and Scilab Enterprises, Extreme Factory makes it easier to use Scilab on bullx supercomputers, with immediate availability. With no need for installation or up-front investment in processing resources, Scilab can be run in remote mode using the bullx systems at the heart of Extreme Factory. It's a real solution of the future for SMEs and independent design studios that have no other way of accessing these kinds of computing resources. So there are immediate benefits to users. Bull's expertise in Extreme Computing, combined with Scilab Enterprises' know-how in related computing and support services, means we can provide a unique and powerful solution for everyone involved in computer simulation and design."
