This remote-seeming software has another big benefit: It will boost the accessibility of massive computing power in the cloud. “Thirty or forty years ago, you had to basically build out a mainframe to run complex computations,” Levie says. Those mainframes cost tens of millions of dollars. “Today, you can just run it in a virtual job in somebody else’s cloud. You literally only pay for the amount of computing you use in a very discrete time period.” Even better software, better cloud management, will let more and more people use its computational power.
