X-ISS to Present During SHPCP Webinar

HOUSTON, Tex., May 14 — eXcellence in IS Solutions Inc. (X-ISS), a provider of High Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data solutions, will present “Cognitive Analytics for HPC Data Centers” during a live webinar hosted by the Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP). The featured speaker will be Deepak Khosla, X-ISS founder and president.

The technical webinar is free, open to all, and will be held at 4 pm EDT on May 21, 2014. Please register today by clicking here or visit www.hpcsociety.org. The SHPCP webinar series is sponsored by Adaptive Computing.

The X-ISS presentation is geared toward HPC IT managers, CxOs, and project managers within organizations that have invested in HPC clusters and want to ensure their systems are running efficiently from both a technical and business perspective. The individuals managing these data centers typically struggle to answer operational questions that come from the system users and the enterprise executives, this webinar will address that challenge.

“Users may want to know why their jobs are running slowly, and executives want assurance their HPC utilization aligns with business goals,” says Khosla. “System administrators and managers have to answer these questions quickly and confidently.”

To answer these questions, Khosla will demonstrate the DecisionHPC business analytics software introduced by X-ISS for cost-effective HPC cluster management. DecisionHPC is a platform-neutral SaaS solution that gives insight into the value HPC provides to the business in a ‘Single Pane of Glass’ dashboard related to projects, users and applications.

Khosla will demonstrate how insights into cluster performance can be used to answer operational questions relating to specific jobs and make real-time business decisions regarding cluster utilization.

Webinar takeaways will include:

  • Project managers will learn to assess project performance against a budget,
  • Cluster managers will learn about various metrics they can leverage, and
  • CXOs will learn to evaluate resource allocation and determine if/when additional capacity is needed.

The Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP) invited X-ISS to present because its DecisionHPC software can give the technical user community a better understanding of how HPC cluster performance impacts the bottom lines of their businesses.

SHPCP is a world-wide technical users group dedicated to the advancement, operations and utilization of HPC and supercomputing technologies and to promote the common business and technology interests of its members. The society hosts monthly webinar and roundtable events as well as an annual technical conference. Learn more at www.hpcsociety.org.
