Moving to the cloud raises new issues about operating on the cloud — and it turns out a little bit of engineering discipline helps no matter what industry you are in.

eSilicon, headquartered in San Jose, California, is an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) developer, designing and producing high-end semiconductors. It serves the high-bandwidth networking, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and 5G infrastructure markets. Its customers include Fortune 500 OEMs, with global operations and multiple worldwide locations.
The industry experiences large compute /storage variability (2–4x increase in compute and storage demand during peak time), and even a hybrid cloud delivery model did not meet eSilicon's elasticity requirements related to its ambition to provide faster time to market. eSilicon wanted its infrastructure to be more agile in order to respond to changing customer demands. eSilicon has been using a hybrid on-premises/cloud environment where its ASIC design platforms were running on-premises and IP design platforms were running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
The client wanted to move all of its ASIC and IP design to GCP and was looking for a partner that understood its industry and also had a strategic partnership with Google Cloud. To solve the problem of matching elastic compute and storage demands with variable customer demand for ASIC development, eSilicon chose to migrate all ASIC and IP design work to GCP.
