Back to the Future of High Performance Computing

HPC
As I gear up to attend the 2018 Rice Oil & Gas HPC Conference in Houston, I take pause and think about the journey that the science of High Performance Computing (HPC) has been through and more importantly, am curious about where it is headed. When I had spoken about sustaining an ecosystem of Open Innovation at this conference last year, I had the privilege of meeting Earl Dodd, an industry expert on HPC. I happened to have an opportunity to meet Earl recently and engaged in an insightful conversation about HPC. Let us just say our conversation sprouted the idea of doing a multi-part podcast starting with the basics and looking ahead to the future. We hope you’ll join us as we head “Back to the Future” of HPC through podcasts that define what HPC is and explore where HPC is headed.

Podcast 1: Basics of High Performance Computing

Podcast 2: Where is HPC headed?

Join Us: Panel explores cloud use and operational efficiency for financial services

Third-party cloud services promise to deliver utility-based computing – and its an opportunity many capital market firms are interested in pursuing. But cloud services have to be elastic, responsive, secure, resilient and cost-effective if financial firms are going to trust them to support business-critical workloads. Transitioning to the cloud requires a thoughtful approach that takes into account to migration, orchestration and operational efficiency. To help financial firms through these transitions, the Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA) is hosting a February 28th panel discussion in New York City.
