Synopsys Cloud is available in two deployments:
- Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC)
- Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
SaaS is also powered by the FlexEDA business model. It allows Synopsys EDA tools to run on a pay-per-use basis and through a cloud subscription license. Our SaaS offering provides complete design and verification environments, including Synopsys EDA products and compute, storage infrastructure to run EDA workloads in the most optimal way. The SaaS deployment is a fully Synopsys managed service. Synopsys sets up the entire environment for customers who need compute, storage, and infrastructure resources as well as the EDA tools.
The Synopsys Cloud SaaS deployment also provides complete CAD management. Customers bring their own designs and work in a Synopsys managed environment. The compute and storage infrastructure in this case is from Microsoft Azure. Synopsys also ensures that the compute selected is optimized for the set of selected EDA tools that are available in this platform and that the optimization of compute and EDA tools works well together. In addition to the stand-alone EDA tools known as Apps, Synopsys also offers complete, end-to-end EDA design flows, which are called instances in this platform.
Synopsys also offers emulation on the cloud. Synopsys ZeBu® Cloud is an emulation platform in the cloud environment, managed by Synopsys and run on Synopsys’s own private cloud environment.
