With multi-cloud bursting and hybrid capability, the combined solution offers high degrees of self-service and automation, boosting Atos’ capabilities. As part of its OneCloud effort, Atos will expand its market offering and reach with a powerful HPC cloud solution under the Atos brand.

Nimbix, which was founded in 2010 and is based just outside of Dallas, Texas, provides cloud and on-premises HPC, giving engineers and scientists access to the infrastructure and software they need to build, compute, analyze, scale, and deploy simulations, AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning applications.

Atos’ HPCaaS development and go-to-market strategies with Cloud Services Providers will be accelerated thanks to Nimbix’s distinctive intellectual property, as well as growing and accelerating Atos’ HPC presence in North America. It would also aid Atos’ HPC offerings in important industries, including Manufacturing, Financial Services & Insurance, Healthcare & Life Sciences, and Public Sector & Defense, by making HPC services more accessible without requiring a large upfront CAPEX investment.

HPC Cloud is growing year-on-year, and 2021 represents a tipping point where an increasingly large portion of the global HPC market is adopting cloud as a core part of its HPC strategy. With this acquisition, we will be able to complement our existing HPC offering and expertise with a comprehensive solution, providing customers with the most advanced hybrid cloud capabilities to better manage the use, performance, and delivery of services for both cloud-native and on-prem deployments. Nimbix’s technology is ahead of the market and, combined with its strong experience and highly skilled experts, will strengthen the Atos teams and enable us to expand our market offering and reach.
