Dell Technologies HPC Community Event
July 14th at 10:00am CDT
An Even More Spirited Conversation About HPC & Cloud Computing
presented by Tim Carroll, Director, HPC & AI for Research, Microsoft; Angeles Garza, Product Manager, Dell Technologies; Bill Magro, Chief Technologist HPC, Google; and Martijn de Vries, CTO, Bright Computing
About the Event
HPC on-prem bare-metal systems are still the foundation of the HPC user community and market, but cloud HPC services, including largely in public clouds, are growing fast and already being used by many customers as well. What are the best practices for cloud HPC computing? What HPC applications and workload characteristics are best (and worst) suited for cloud computing and why? What does the future look for cloud HPC and hybrid multi-cloud HPC? What technologies are emerging to make the future even brighter (or cloudier?) for hybrid multi-cloud HPC? Following up on the well-attended conversation on February 24, Jay Boisseau will again interview (and occasionally debate) old friends who are leaders and experts in the relatively new cloud HPC landscape about cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid cloud HPC solutions and usage, now and tomorrow.
