Practicalities and Challenges in the Petaflops Era

June 22, 2011

Every year at ISC we stop and look back at the field of HPC, which has consistently exhibited the greatest rate of change of any technology in the history of mankind. This year is particularly important as the conventional methods that have served well over the last two decades are in direct contention with the technology trends pushing us towards a new future -- this in the context of petaflops-capable supercomputers that have become the new standard at the top end of HPC and the reemergence of Asia as a dominant player in that ethereal regime.
