Video: Panel Discussion on Innovation in HPC

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Detroit, Earl Joseph from Hyperion Research moderates a panel discussion on Innovation in HPC. “Hyperion Research sponsors the annual HPC and ROI Innovation Awards to recognize noteworthy achievements made by users using High Performance Computing technologies. While there are multiple benchmarks to measure the performance of technical computers, there currently isn’t an adequate methodology to evaluate the economic and scientific value HPC systems contribute. The HPC Innovation Excellence Award Program is designed to help close that gap.”

Rescale Partners Program to Deliver Big Compute to Enterprise Customers

Last week, Rescale announced the launch of its Powered by Rescale program with IBM as its first partner. “With the Powered by Rescale program, partners can deliver their product and/or service to customers as part of an end-to-end solution under their brand. This allows partners in the simulation and HPC space to participate in net-new cloud business opportunities while maintaining focus on their core technology and competency.”

Rescale Brings NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Electromagnetic Simulation To The Cloud
