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.
Big Data, Big Opportunity: Maximizing the Value of Data in HPC Environments
SESSION: Storage I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 10:30AM - 11:00AM
ABSTRACT: IDC predicts data will grow faster than Moore's Law to 1.8 Zettabytes by the end of the year, while file-based data will grow 75X in the next decade. With such staggering growth rates, it is clear there has never been more data available - or a greater imperitive to access, analyze and distribute it more efficiently.
Especially in high-performance computing (HPC) environments, data stores can grow extremely rapidly and though compute server technology has kept pace, storage has not, creating a barrier between researchers and their data.
This session will examine how impementing scale-out storage can eliminate the storage bottleneck in HPC and put data immediately into the hands of those who need it most.
EMC Isilon Director of Product Management Nick Kirsch will detail real-life implementations in which scale-out storage dramatically accelerated data and server performance, speeding time-to-results in critical HPC projects to extract maximum value from HPC data.
