So, what are the key differences in the systems, operational models, and thus workloads of HPC and cloud computing? How much HPC has moved to public cloud and what kind? What is the role of private cloud in HPC, and what does the future hold for HPC on-prem vs. in service providers—and hybrid models? How will the market forces as well as technology evolution influence this? Listen to our experts, then speak up with your own questions and thoughts on this important intersection of technologies.
Director, HPC & AI for Research, Microsoft Azure
Tim is responsible for Microsoft’s role in supporting computational research across academic and government research. He has spent sixteen years collaborating with the research community to broaden and simplify access to technology. While leading Dell’s HPC business from 2007 to 2013, they delivered break-through systems across several centers and NSF-funded centers. He joined Cycle Computing in 2014 to enable cloud to continue the trajectory established by Linux clusters. In 2017, Cycle was acquired by Microsoft to accelerate and simplify the management of HPC and AI workloads within Azure.
Steve began his career in semiconductors with Texas Instruments after earning his degree in Electrical Engineering from Santa Clara University, having studied device physics during the peak of Moore’s law. Today, he is a technology industry veteran of over 25 years and served the last 9 years as co-founder and CEO of Nimbix, a leading provider of high-performance and accelerated cloud computing software and services. An entrepreneur, builder and inventor at heart, Steve’s vision is aimed at solving the world’s biggest challenges with supercomputing.
Chief Technologist for HPC, VMware
With over 20 years of experience in High Performance Computing, Josh currently leads an effort within VMware's Office of the CTO to bring the full value of virtualization to HPC. Previously, he was a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems with broad responsibilities for HPC direction and strategy. He joined Sun in 1996 from Thinking Machines Corporation, a pioneering company in the area of Massively Parallel Processors (MPPs), where he held a variety of technical positions. Josh has worked on developer tools for distributed parallel computing, including language and compiler design, scalable parallel debugger design and development, and MPI. He has also worked in the areas of 3D graphics, image processing, and realtime device control. Josh has an undergraduate degree in Engineering from Harvard College and a Masters in Computer Science from Harvard University. He has served as a member of the OpenMP ARB Board of Directors since 2002 and is currently serving as Chairman of the Board.
