    Kick-off Meeting CloudiFacturing at IGD Fraunhofer in Darmstadt

    We are glad to announce that we are partner of the recently started Innovation Action CloudiFacturing that is funded with €8.7 million by the Horizon 2020 EU Research and Innovation Programme and coordinated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Stork (IGD Fraunhofer in Darmstadt).

    To contribute to a new Innovation Action besides Project COLA is for us at cloudSME highly relevant. Our company is committed to the vision that the European economy and its SMEs can grow sustainable and benefit from each other in a framework like the Horizon 2020. cloudSME is responsible for the Work-Package No. 7 that deals with the Impact and Commercialization of CloudiFacturing.

    Innovation Action CloudiFacturing

    The mission of CloudiFacturing is to optimize production processes and producibility using Cloud/HPC-based modeling and simulation, leaveraging online factory data and advanced data analytics, thus contributing to the competitiveness and resource efficiency of manufacturing SMEs, ultimately fostering the vision of Factories 4.0 and the circular economy.

    A single point of access will conflate the cloud-based technology offerings of the startups clesgo and cloudSME. CloudiFacturings Digital Marketplace will support manufacturing SMEs to compute and solve CPU-intensive workflows that cannot be tackled without cloud and/or HPC technology. Consequently, SMEs can become more competitive by reducing development times for innovative products with better performance

    Open Calls of CloudiFacturing

    CloudiFacturing will empower over 60 European organizations (many of them being manufacturing SMEs) and will support about 20 cross-national application experiments that will primarily be selected via two Open Calls.

  • High performance batch-services for your homepage


    Batch-services are non-interactive processes, the program receives a “batch” of inputs and executes a series of jobs without manual intervention. The output is provided in form of a file or in a database.

    HPC interface for your WordPress homepage

    The developed WordPress Plug-In can create a customized interface on websites to connect batch-services with the capabilities of the cloudSME platform. The batch-services can be seamlessly executed, every step of execution can be surveyed and the result is provided as a download. By reducing the consumption of resources in the most effective way, on demand, it lowers the barriers of cloud computing and creates a cost-efficient and secure opportunity for small and medium enterprises to increase competitiveness, without taking high investments for hardware and maintenance.

    Technical insights

    The plugin communicates, encrypted by SSL, with the cloudSME platform using a REST API to establish a direct connection channel between the website and the cloudSME platform for data transmission. Classic batch-services, such as rendering 3D animations with Blender, a CFD simulation or other computer intensive applications, can be executed from the vendor´s website (or any other website) supported by HPC resources. Every software, that follows classic batch principles and is deployed on the cloudSME-platform, can be executed by the WordPress plug-in and data is fully protected by SSL encryption.
    The plug-in can be used with cloudSME platform-accounts and gives the opportunity to provide a desired software for customer and/or employees on company websites, without installing the software on a wide range of computers.
    The configuration of the plug-in is quickly made. By using CSS3 the plug-in can be seamlessly integrated into mostly every WordPress theme and there is also the ability for admin-accounts to customize the cloudSME HPC plug-in.

    How does the HPC plug-in communicate?




    Ben, our technical project assistant is available for your support and happy to answer your questions.
