dellboothIn this podcast, Stephen Sofhauser from Dell describes what’s coming up at the company’s exhibit at SC15 in Austin. With a 50×50 exhibit and two booth theaters, Dell will showcase how customers are using their technology to solve their toughest computational problems.

As an added bonus, Breakfast Tacos will be available for Dell’s opening talks each day at 10:15 am!

Our own Rich Brueckner from insideHPC will host a pair of panel discussions in the Dell booth #1009 on Wednesday, Nov. 18:

All Together Now: The Convergence of Big Data, Cloud, and HPC on Wednesday, Nov 18, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Panelists include:

  • Wojtek Goscinski, Ph.D. (Monash University)
  • Niall Gaffney, Ph.D. (Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC))
  • Craig Stewart, Ph.D. (Indiana University)
  • Andrew Rutherford (Microsoft)

Modeling and simulation have been the primary usage of high performance computing (HPC). But the world is changing. We now see the need for rapid, accurate insights from large amounts of data. To accomplish this, HPC technology is repurposed. Likewise the location where the work gets done is not entirely the same either. Many workloads are migrating to massive cloud data centers because of the speed of execution. In this panel, leaders in computing will share how they, and others, integrate tradition and innovation (HPC technologies, Big Data analytics, and Cloud Computing) to achieve more discoveries and drive business outcomes.

More than Just Exascale: How the NSCI Will Make HPC More Accessible to All on Wednesday, Nov 18, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Panelists include:

  • Dan Stanzione, Ph.D. (Texas Advanced Computing Center TACC)
  • Mike Norman, Ph.D. (San Diego Supercomputing Center SDSC)
  • Dave Lifka, Ph.D. (Cornell University)
  • Merle Giles (National Center for Supercomputing Applications NCSA)

The US —and the world —took notice this summer when President Obama issued an Executive Order establishing the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI). While most headlines focus on the exascale goals of this initiative, the NSCI presents a comprehensive set of objectives. Those objectives include advancing usage, capabilities and impact of HPC for decades to come. In this panel, you will hear from HPC leaders who are moving us forward in improving HPC application developer productivity and making high performance computing more accessible to all.
