Sept. 8 — XTREME Design Inc., a Japanese startup offering a cloud-based, virtual, supercomputing-on-demand service, announced that it engaged Dr. David Barkai as an adviser for entering the US market with its own HPC cloud service. In this role, Dr. Barkai will leverage his deep experience in HPC technology to provide the fast-growing company with strategic guidance as it expands into the US market. XTREME Design Inc. is planning to exhibit at Supercomputing 2017 to be held in Denver in November (Booth #1485).
Dr. David Barkai:
David is a long time HPC practitioner with over 35 years of experience. He entered the field very shortly after receiving a Ph.D. in theoretical physics. A common thread of Davidʼs career is a focus on the relationships between applications/workloads and architecture. He was in several HPC companies during their hay days – Control Data, Floating Point Systems, Cray Research, Supercomputing Systems Inc., as well as a stint at NASA Ames. And, more recently, in Intel for 15 years ‒ most of it as one of its HPC experts. After retiring from Intel, Dr. Barkai stayed involved with HPC through a couple of years each at Cray and SGI.
