When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
Cloud Computing and HPC - Implications and Opportunities
SESSION: HPC on Clouds
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 11:30AM - 12:00PM
ABSTRACT: With the rise of cloud computing, the world of HPC is changing. The potential benefits for HPC are obvious. Rather than relying solely on your own on-premises computing resources, using the cloud gives you access to more compute power when you need it. This allows tilting HPC costs away from capital expense and toward operating expense, something that’s attractive to many organizations.
Cloud computing will have a big impact on the HPC world, but on-premises HPC computing isn’t going away. Instead, providing a way to combine the two approaches makes sense. This is what Microsoft has done with Windows HPC Server and Windows Azure, supporting all three possible combinations: applications that run entirely on-premises, applications that run entirely in the cloud, and applications that are spread across both.
Come hear Ryan Waite, General Manager, share the latest news in HPC in the cloud and the Microsoft roadmap for the future.
