To learn more, we caught up with Laura Shepard, Director of Marketing for HPC at DDN.
A new report shows that the American research community is already experiencing extreme setbacks as a result of sequestration. Produced by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology along with 15 other science organizations, the report is based on a nationwide, online survey designed to measure the effects of the faltering federal investment on scientists and the research they are trying to conduct.
Supercomputing is no longer the reserve of a few select universities, but rather on the priority list for both the government and education bodies.
