Synopsys Cloud provides hassle-free license management and addresses the challenges stated above for our customers in three ways:
1. License management
On the Synopsys Cloud platform, license management is completely automated. It takes the burden of dealing with the intricacies of license management off chip design teams, whether they’re running EDA tools on:
a. The Synopsys-managed, EDA-optimized SaaS cloud platform, OR
b. Their own cloud environment from any of the supported Cloud Service Providers (CSP), OR
c. On-prem compute data centers or a private cloud
Additional licenses purchased on the platform, whether for a fixed term or in a pay-per-use
model (explained later), are automatically installed and activated, and available to use instantly. This eCommerce aspect of the platform is fully embraced by current users of the platform. It eliminates the delays incurred in manually obtaining license keys and restarting the license server, thereby ensuring zero downtime for engineers and no loss of productivity.
