Former Intel HPC Leader Trish Damkroger Joins HPE as Chief Product Officer for HPC and AI

Damkroger joins HPE at a pivotal time for the company’s HPC organization as its customers at three US Department of Energy national laboratories transition to the exascale era — supercomputers capable of 10(18) calculations per second. As Hotard stated in his blog, “HPE is at the forefront of making exascale computing, a technological magnitude that will deliver 10X faster performance than the majority of today’s most powerful supercomputers, a soon-to-be reality. With the upcoming U.S. Department of Energy’s exascale system, Frontier, an HPE Cray EX supercomputer that will be hosted at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, we are unlocking a new world of supercomputing.”
