Nice, the high-performance computing company Amazon just acquired, has a heck of a customer list

Market-leading public cloud Amazon Web Services (AWS) has acquired Nice, an Italian company with a web interface for planning and monitoring of high-performance computing (HPC) workloads. The software should really be something, because he took the use of a long list of companies.

It is therefore not surprising that Amazon will not interrupt the service much. As head of AWS evangelist he puts yesterday in a blog:

"The Nice team marks remain intact and continue to develop products and support EnginFrame Cloud Office (VTC) and visualization. Customers will continue to receive support and world-class services, reinforced with support from AWS team. In the future, Nice and AWS will work together to create better tools and services. "

Of course, better services will strengthen the offer HPC AWS, "and that is certainly important that AWS is competing with Microsoft Azure (which bought the company in 2014 GreenButton HPC), Google Cloud Platform and other clouds.

But the other main attraction of Nice is your customer list. More starry than some other recent acquisitions of AWS, including Amiato, AppThwack and ClusterK.

A sample of customers from Nice
  • Airbus
  • Alcatel
  • Audi
  • Bridgestone
  • Bosch
  • CERN
  • Chevron
  • ConocoPhillips
  • Ericsson
  • Ferrari
  • Fiat
  • Harvard Business School
  • Hess
  • Honda
  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • Lear
  • Magellan Aerospace
  • McLaren
  • MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Motorola
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Raytheon
  • Red Bull
  • Siemens
  • Suzuki
  • Toyota
  • Yale University
Now, Amazon is making money from these companies (if not already customers of AWS), because they will continue to use nice tools like EnginFrame interface, which has application templates that make it easier for less technical users put in running quickly. And it's easy to imagine the agreement to the deployment of large-scale work in HPC AWS servers.

But even with that said, Nice acquisition was not large enough to be significant; Amazon did not disclose terms of the agreement.

Belle began in 1996 and is based in the Italian town of Asti.
