HPE Leaders Will Share Insights Across the HPC Spectrum at SC20

November 12, 2020

Nov. 12, 2020 — It’s that time of year again. The SC20 program goes live November 16. The event has shifted to virtual for 2020, but that’s the only difference. It’s still packed with great content. If you haven’t already, make sure to register to get access to the full line up of sessions, keynotes, panels, and more. Below, HPE provides a look at a few of their sessions and talks.

A theme for 2020 could certainly be one of rapid transformation. While change is par for the course in HPC, it’s even more acute today as once-relevant approaches to HPC grow stale in the face of new, more complex questions. At SC20, HPE tech experts and our partners will set the stage for these growth areas—what’s current, what’s upcoming, and how we’re responding to the ever-growing needs of our customers.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the HPE-led SC20 sessions available virtually starting November 16:

Keynote Sessions

Continuum of Computing with Jeff Brooks

HPE customers can now select from high speed interconnects, architecture types, cooling strategies, and software stacks. This talk will discuss the full HPE compute product portfolio from single-server, to InfiniBand-based clusters to large exascale supercomputers and highlight choices available to customers along this path.

Hybrid Cloud – What Does This Mean for HPC? with Intel

HPC in the Cloud is growing. Customers are looking for options—burst capacity, private, and public clouds. We’ll discuss the demand for hybrid cloud, an implementation, and key learnings.

And there’s plenty more where that came from! We encourage you to explore the SC20 sessions that have been carefully curated to bring you up to speed on all things HPC at HPE come November 16. We look forward to seeing you virtually at SC20!
