Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this video from the PBS Works User Group 2017, Rich Brueckner from insideHPC moderates a vendor panel on The Changing Landscape of HPC.

“When it comes down to it, the HPC community depends on a healthy ecosystem. In this panel discussion, we will explore emerging technology trends that are reshaping the way high performance computing is delivered to the end user.”

Blame it on Vegas, but Rich goes to extraordinary lengths to involve the audience on this one. Watch as he somehow comes up with the one question that had everyone on the edge of their seats.
