SAN DIEGO, Jan. 25 -- HPCwire, the most widely recognized and accessed news and information site covering the ecosystem of high performance computing (HPC), announced today that it has published the HPCwire People to Watch in 2011 list. The list is comprised of an elite group of highly-regarded industry thought leaders selected from the academic, government, industrial, and vendor communities whose work is believed will impact and influence the future of high performance computing in 2011 and beyond.
"This is a feature article that we at HPCwire take very seriously when making our selections," said Jeff Hyman, president and publisher of HPCwire. "With the emergence of a new generation of very brilliant and talented men and women, combined with their involvement in the evolution of exciting new technologies taking place in the industry, made it challenging to reach our final decisions. It's truly an honor for me to be able to acknowledge this year's list of individuals who we believe will be making a difference in the HPC community and in the world with their contributions."
The final selections for the annual list are made following discussions with the HPCwire editorial and publishing teams, guidance from past recipients, and with input from industry luminaries across the HPC community.
The HPCwire People to Watch in 2011 list includes the following HPC industry thought leaders (in alphabetical order):

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
