Tag: ISC Cloud
Last week at the ISC Cloud event in Frankfurt Germany some of the leading figures in the high-performance computing and cloud space met to discuss progress and current challenges as those in HPC consider the cloud for their applications. On site was Tom Tabor, publisher of HPCwire and HPC in the Cloud who took photos, a select few of which we’ll share here.
Last week leading figures from the HPC and cloud realm gathered in Frankfurt, Germany, for the ISC Cloud Conference, which was organized by the same team that puts together the long-running International Supercomputing Conference each year. The conference drew leading speakers from industry and academia to discuss the challenges, benefits and future of cloud for high-performance computing.
While there are several upcoming events that address both HPC and cloud, there is a notable lack of case studies and balanced, non-vendor-driven discussions about practical implementations–a far more useful topic for those new to the topic or considering the move.

Will average real HPC capability computing applications (e.g. in electronic design automation, automotive applications, or finite-element based material analysis) show a big performance improvement over vanilla EC2 instances, especially those which really demand low latency and high bandwidh?
