Intel® Technologies for HPC for masses

– by Austin Cherian

Outline of the talk

High Performance Computing has its roots in non-commercial, academic, national lab and governmental environments where very large, compute-intensive workloads and applications are executed. According to recent data from IDC HPC, economically-attractive clusters have become the common denominator across most HPC deployments. In parallel, the continuing maturation of HPC ISV commercial business software, the refinement of operating system & cluster software, and the consistent availability of more computing power at lower cost have opened up the inherent performance advantages of HPC clusters to a much wider community of users. Please join Intel for an overview of the current HPC marketplace and the potential alternatives of utilizing High Performance Computing clusters for both increased productivity and competitive advantage.
