Managing High-Performance Computing Centers: Issues & Challenges

SESSION: Managing High-Performance Computing Centers: Issues & Challenges

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Nicholas Berente, Stanley Ahalt, Jay Boisseau


Some might argue that the contemporary landscape for high-performance computing (HPC) center managers is different than what it was in the past. HPC centers are under increasing pressure to collaborate, to find alternative sources of funding, to innovate in novel ways, and to maintain performance over time. Some centers are reaching unprecedented scale in size and scope. In many ways, these centers are looking like more traditional organizations. But, of course, in many ways they are completely different. The goal of this "birds of a feather" session will be to discuss the following: - What are the contemporary challenges in managing contemporary HPC centers? Are these challenges different than the past? if so, in what way? - Can managers of HPC centers learn from other domains in areas such as strategic planning, operations, software development, etc.? What best practices apply and do not apply to such centers?
