The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner Talks with Jack Collins about the Emergence of ‘HPC Everywhere’ and Its Impact on Science

HPC industry veteran Jack Collins, long-time fixture in the scientific supercomputing community, has seen it all in HPC, from the days when his input/output device for storing integrals was nine-track tape to today’s 750-GPU monster systems.
