Podcast: Molly Rector from DDN on the Changing Face of HPC Storage

In this GrayBeards Podcast, Molly Rector from DDN describes how HPC storage technologies are mainstreaming into the enterprise space.

“In HPC there are 1000s of compute cores that are crunching on PB of data. For Oil & Gas companies, it’s seismic and wellhead analysis; with bio-informatics it’s genomic/proteomic analysis; and with financial services, it’s economic modeling/backtesting trading strategies. For today’s enterprises such as retailers, it’s customer activity analytics; for manufacturers, it’s machine sensor/log analysis;  and for banks/financial institutions, it’s credit/financial viability assessments. Enterprise IT might not have 1000s of cores at their disposal just yet, but it’s not far off. Molly thinks one way to help enterprise IT is to provide a SuperComputer as a service (ScaaS?) offering, where top 10 supercomputers can be rented out by the hour, sort of like a supercomputing compute/data cloud.”
