Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Web2.0 Applications on HPC Speeds

SESSION: Web2.0 Applications on HPC Speeds

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Gilad Shainer, Jeffrey Layton, Scot Schultz


High-performance technologies typically find themselves as the primer solutions for scalable high-performance computing infrastructures that are being used for engineering simulation and research, and less in the enterprise data center. But with the emerging Web2.0 applications and the expansion of cloud infrastructures the need for speed has been extended into the Web2.0 applications as well. The benefits of low latency and high CPU efficiencies are been used for faster parallel database mapping, RDMA support is been added to Hadoop and MemCached and high throughput is being used for live migrations. Do the clouds help to drive HPC technologies into new frontiers? The session will review several cases of Web2.0 users that have decided to use HPC technologies and how those technologies can benefit the entire set of cloud application.
