Big HPC: Deploying, Managing, Powering, and Cooling Large HPC Systems
September 23rd @ 10am CST
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.
