Interactive Scientific helps universities and pharmaceutical firms to accelerate their molecular research through molecular visualization, and uses Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services as the platform for its Nano Simbox solution.


  • As software businesses scale, their infrastructure needs to grow accordingly, and new firms can falter quickly if their promising application fails to support customers’ workloads. This has led to demand for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms such as Oracle’s Bare Metal Cloud Services.
  • Interactive Scientific was also selected to participate in the Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem, the vendor’s initiative to support and mentor emerging companies in exploiting the power of cloud services
