Why Frontline Cloud?

Frontline is the first in the industry to harness the virtually infinite capacity of the cloud to address emerging trends and increasing PCB design size and complexity: higher processing power and memory demands for 5G and LED, parallel processing limits on computer effectiveness, and growing demand for artificial intelligence to optimize DFM analysis

  • Save on IT costs via scalable computation resources and monitored usage reports
  • Address emerging trends (5G, mini-LED) and increased design complexity
  • Accelerate DFMs and analysis to meet growing productivity demand
  • Access consistently reliable, available, and up-to-date services and tools
  • Complies with the highest cloud security standards in the industry

Accelerate DFMs and analysis to meet productivity demand

Frontline Cloud Services utilize smart, machine learning-driven data processing to accelerate design analysis by up to 90% to meet rising productivity demand. 

Continuous software updates

Frontline Cloud Services remove the need for regular software updates and maintenance, so your people can focus on more strategic tasks.

Available, Reliable, Scalable

Operating on the most secure cloud platform in the world, Frontline Cloud Services offer availability, reliability and scalability, enabling PCB manufacturers to work at their optimum. All this and dizzying CAM processing speeds empowering you to drive your business to new heights.

Available and reliable

Frontline Cloud Services run 24/7 with no downtime or failures so your system is never unavailable, offline or not operational.

Fully scalable CAM computation resources

With elastic cloud infrastructure, your business gets exactly the right amount of IT resources on demand and can scale up – or down – as your needs change.

Cost Saving with Flexible Payment and Consumption

Cost saving

Frontline Cloud Services help you eliminate the capital investment in hardware and fixed IT architecture associated with on-premise infrastructure and the experts that run it, bringing significant cost benefits.

Flexible payment and consumption

Flexible payment and licensing models enable you to pay only for what you use for a three year period. Keep track of activity with detailed usage reports. It’s a win-win!

Complies with Cloud Security Standards

The security of your data is our number one priority. Frontline Cloud Services use the most secure cloud platform in the world. We safeguard your data with protective mechanisms at every step, using encryption and access control.

Secure access

  • Every factory has a unique encryption master key.
  • Internet access is restricted to a single port and URL.
  • Credentials are required for cloud access.
  • Factory cloud credentials are hidden from Frontline InCAM® Pro users.

Job-level security

  • Each job is encrypted via a uniquely generated key; data at rest is encrypted.
  • Data is uploaded and downloaded via a random time-bound address.
  • Data is decrypted in a restricted private access network (AWS), and is deleted from the cloud immediately after download.
  • Secure channels: HTTPS for job data and the web.
  • Secure socket for status notifications.
