The Rise of HPC from Exascale Computing to our Connected Society’s Global Engine
HPC is at a very significant societal inflection point. A short decade ago, HPC consisted of highly customized technologies, only usable by experts and rocket scientists, and deployed in a small number of government labs and research facilities to address scientific discovery and defense requirements. Today, HPC has permeated the very fabric of our lives, throughout the enterprise, in a broad range of consumer applications, and in most internet enabled environments globally. It is becoming the global engine of our society.
Join this welcome session at EnterpriseHPC’16 to learn how we will be merging compute, fabric, interconnect and I/O optimally and with far better power consumption in the HPC architectures being leveraged throughout the data intensive Enterprise. Molly will discuss how to leverage intelligent storage tiering from cache to NVMe and SSD and Spinning disk and Tape will require a highly innovative software model which will accelerate both legacy and newly developed applications such as Hadoop and Open Stack.
