RiskWare: the product
Depending on the models integrated, size, complexity and real-time performance requirements, RiskWare is implemented on a cluster of multi-processor servers with a local dedicated Gigabit network connection. The setup includes a web server, data base server, and one or more compute servers. In principle, they can be installed on a single machine. Supported architectures include:
Any platform (workstation or PC with Internet access, private VPN or public) that supports a standard web browser
(for the X11 based version: any platform (workstation or PC) that supports X11 in the same LAN with the servers).
The RiskWare base system includes:
The base system provides support for an unlimited number of local or remote (web based) institutional and individual clients.
Additional or alternative simulation models (e.g., for coastal marine systems, oil spills) 3D groundwater modeling, and/or heavy gas dispersion (e.g., SLAB) can be integrated on request.
includes the client/server software for any industry standard web browser clients, unlimited number of clients, and an optional module for public environmental information (web server) for public access to Safety Report and Emergency Plan data (96/82/EC) or EIA information (Aarhus convention, 2003/65/EC).
All RiskWare licenses and installations include,
Continuing maintenance after the first year, user support, and updates are offered on an annual support contract basis.

Alternatively, we offer RiskWare as a remote on-line service, (SaaS, Software as a Service) where ESS as Application Service Provider (APS) maintains all necessary data bases, the simulation models, and a range of support tools and makes them available, fully supported, seven days a week twenty four hours a day for remote access through a secure Internet access to the ESS 8 Mb leased line server cluster. Support also inclueds continuous updates and extended warranty as well as users support/training options (eLearning). This requires only a simple web browser and Internet access as a client installation.
This service is offered on an annual subscription basis starting at € 4,000/month . Setup costs (data compilation and processing, system configuration, user training) depending on the size and complexity of the installation) mount to 25% of the license costs for a local installation. In the case of a subsequent purchase of the RiskWare license for local operation, the setup costs are fully credited.
As an alternative option, we also offer customized distributed/hybrid installation
combining local (client site) web and data base servers, connected to and supported by
remote high-performance computer servers for complex, computationally
demanding applications integrated on a subscription basis
