Lunch and Learn Event
The BIG Dog in the room: What part of HPC Cloud is Myth? What part is Reality?
Presenter: RJ Kelley
The topic of Cloud in HPC still continues to be somewhat polarizing; however in the past year, we at
Adaptive Computing have seen more and more customers asking about HPC Cloud and how we will
approach bringing HPC Cloud into a reality!
What is HPC Cloud? How does one define it? Is it actually going to be of use in high performance
computing, or is it just a myth, something people talk about, claim they need, but never actually use.
What challenges still need to be resolved for HPC Cloud to make commercial business sense?
Come discover how we at Adaptive Computing see HPC Cloud and how we would approach it based on
many customer requirements gathered throughout last year.
Bring your use cases, bias, personal opinions, and site requirements to an interactive discussion on whether
this concept is real or just another myth.
