HPC clusters have become a cornerstone for many scientific fields including some we’d never expected, such as biology. Virtualization is essential to a vast new era of systems and has (with some hype) given birth to ‘The Cloud’. The two are not necessarily incompatible and work is being done to bring benefits that enterprise users of virtualization enjoy to the HPC arena where — despite years of experience — we still battle with the challenge that large scale computing presents. This panel will challenge old notions, update you on current activities and provoke a debate about what’s needed for the future.”
