Material progress - it's elemental

Exabyte.io modeling platform paves the way

Materials modeling today is an esoteric, albeit critical, discipline, hamstrung by a proliferation of specialized point tools, computational complexity, lack of standards, and an unmanaged explosion of data.

In order for the promise of materials modeling to be realized, the technology has to become easy to use, flexible and accessible. We think these goals are attainable now - and are already proving it, with examples listed here.

Exabyte Vision

Here is what we believe:

  • Faster, more precise systems for modeling cut the time-to-market for new materials and resulting products in many application areas
  • Researchers must be able to exploit the best-in-class modeling tools for each type of simulation, whether they are intimately familiar with the tool or not
  • Simulations deliver the most precise answers when modelers and experimentalists collaborate efficiently, using agreed standards
  • Cloud computing is taking the lead in performance, scalability, and security for HPC workflows, including materials modeling

This is why Exabyte.io is building a cloud-native, modular, accessible and collaborative modeling platform.


Cloud HPC is the fastest-growing segment of HPC, and for good reasons. The vendors have the resources to offer instant access and scalability on the leading current technology. They also know security is central to their business and can afford the most reliable solutions, which is why companies now run critical functions such as HR, payroll, and finance in the cloud. The cloud service providers' lead will only extend over time helping to solve the computational complexity of materials modeling.

Modular and Accessible

Because of the computational complexity, no single developer has the best-in-class tools across all scales and physical-model types. Researchers want the flexibility to use the optimum tool for a specific analysis, without having to learn yet another new language and data format. Instead, a plug-in modular architecture will allow researchers to pick the best combination of tools, and get the job done faster. Data standards and an intuitive interface allow to control the ever-growing data and cut learning time, making the discipline less esoteric.


The way to improve any R&D process is to first define it and allow great minds to participate, build on what has been learned already, then provide feedback from the results achieved so the process can be improved. This means scientists need to be able to review and comment on each other's work, to define and refine workflows, and to engage experimentalists to evaluate the results. Instead of having modelers and experimentalists work independently and continue speaking different languages, exchanging information regularly lets teams achieve R&D goals faster and more accurately.


Materials modeling has the potential to speed the discovery of extraordinary new materials for many industries and applications. To do so, it must be set free from the ivory tower and in-house supercomputers, and become more widely accessible, easier to use, faster, and more precise.

This is Materials Modeling 2.0. This is Exabyte.

Leadership Team



Timur conceived Exabyte.io in 2014, after obtaining a Ph.D. degree in physics at UC Berkeley under Marvin L. Cohen. Timur published 15 peer-reviewed articles on computational studies of materials cited over 200 times. His research was focused on high-fidelity first-principles simulation techniques for semiconductors and superconductors. Timur graduated with honors from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, is a regular reviewer of Physical Review Letters, speaks Russian and Tatar.


Lead Engineer

Mohammad is leading the development of the computational infrastructure since 2015, when he decided to merge his entrepreneurial efforts in building cloud supercomputers with Exabyte.io. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Telecommunication Engineering and has 10 years of experience in cloud computing including large-scale grid computing and on-premise infrastructure. His prior research was in resource management and allocation. Speaks Persian and plays Badminton.
