John Russell, HPCwire and Editorial Director and Managing Editor, gives brief overview of the conference, its goals, and resources that attendees have for gaining additional insight into the complex and evolving world of enterprise HPC as well as an overview of the tranferrence and cross-industry lessons from the top of computing to the business/practical level.

5:45 PM - 6:15 PM

Opening Keynote Session: "Surviving the Big Data Explosion: The Intersection of HPC and Enterprise"

Speaker: Ken Claffey, VP & GM Storage Systems Group, Seagate

Enterprises increasingly struggle with reduced budgets and data requirements that threaten to overwhelm existing infrastructure, creating choke-points and erecting barriers to innovation and/or profitability. To remain competitive they must build data storage solutions that embrace flexibility to sustain today's data volumes and support the continued deluge of data. With proper design and feature sets that drive improved performance, enterprises will no longer be limited by their data-they will, in fact, be driven by it.

 

6:15 PM - 7:00 PM

Keynote Session: "Scaling to New Heights: Barriers and Solutions on the Way to IT Transformation"
Speaker: Mike Couvillion, CTO, Drillinginfo

Many of the major enterprises in the world are facing the challenges that come with rapid data growth, creating the need for larger scale systems than they had in the past. One enterprise, Drillinginfo, started as a simple online permit and completion-mapping database in 1999, and grew to become one of the fastest growing companies in the United States within 10 years - including a database that grows at the rate of 20-25 TB per month. Mike Couvillion, CTO of Drillinginfo presents on the barriers and solutions that Drillinginfo encountered along the way, and gives a look at how they're capitalizing on the opportunity to use advanced computing to deliver returns.

Closing Keynote: "HPC - Explorations in the Cloud"

Speaker: Wolfgang Gentzsch, Co-Founder & President, TheUberCloud

Designing better quality products, increasing ROI, reducing product failure, and shorten time to market can be achieved by simulations early in the product life cycle. Today we have access to workstations, in-house servers, and HPC clouds. This lecture will examine benefits, limitations, and challenges using these tools. Based on our experience with 170 computing experiments we will sketch a path from HPC on-ramp to high performance computing, leading to democratization of HPC as we foresee it for the next years. There are several enablers which stand out, among others: the growing user community from 3D printing to big data analytics; additional HPC any-size, any-time, for any-body, on demand, in the cloud; and software containers which host applications, tools, data, and which enable ease of access and use of resources across different platforms.
