Sun Microsystems had been an active partner and participant in the EDA world until Oracle completed it's acquisition in 2010. Suddenly the Sun logo disappeared quite conspicuously from the EDA exhibitions in 2010 and 2011 where Sun was had been prominent and ubiquitous. A little of that came back in 2012 with Univa taking their first active presence at the conference.

Univa (www.Univa.com) helped Sun partner the Sun Grid Engine in 2007, developed the software to meet Sun's HPC go-to-market requirements and became a reseller of engine. In 2010, however, Oracle decided the grid engine division was not as profitable as they would like and dropped it altogether, giving Univa an instant gift of thousands of dedicated users and a rapidly growing service business.

In January 2011, Univa hired the Sun Grid Engine team and redesigned their business model to continue to support and update the Grid Engine. over the following year Univa delivered more code to their new community than any third party outside of Sun, patching holes and adding new functionality, something that had not been done for close to 2 years.

In March of this year, Univa released the results of a Technical Computing User Survey, that showed 70 percent of the respondents expected increase in use of high performance computing this year and 75 percent expected and increase in 2013. No one indicated a decline in use.

The information of the survey was instrumental in Univa's decision to begin making their presence in the EDA industry obvious and the plan, according to Gary Tyreman, President and CEO is to grow that presence steadily. New Tech Press's Lou Covey sat down with Tyreman to talk about Univa and where the EDA industry is headed.
