Webinar: HPC for the Masses, June 7

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One June 7, our friends at The Register are hosting a webinar entitled HPC for the Masses: New Applications, New Sectors, New Opportunities.

It’s time to start thinking creatively about HPC: can it be standardised and commoditised? Can it be applied to more of your compute-intensive problems? Can virtualisation and the cloud create a flexible, scalable HPC environment that we can all use?

Reg readers have answered with a big fat no in the past, with good reason: HPC needs investment, it needs rewritten apps and the skills to create both hardware and software. Now, however, Dr Rob Johnson, HPC God at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International plc, Tony Lock at Freeform Dynamics and Nick Hucker at Microsoft are arguing that HPC is ready for prime time.

This free program will be hosted by the Register’s own Tim Phillips and will be available for replay for those us on this side of the pond. Register now.
