SC16 is in the rear view mirror – but the energy and innovation we saw at the conference and expo will “drive” the year to come

By Kristin Hansen | November 30, 2016

Our Bright Computing team has a lot to be thankful for this year – and it all came together at the 2016 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC16), in Salt Lake City, Utah a couple of weeks ago. The crowds were amazing – we spoke to hundreds of people at the booth – and they confirmed our understanding of the growing interest in extending the on-premise HPC environment into the cloud. Customers are definitely looking to manage Linux-clustered infrastructure for high performance computing, big data analytics, deep learning, and private cloud.

HPC Challenges That Must Be Overcome

By Paul Williams | April 11, 2015

Organizations operating HPC environments in the U.S. need the government to help supply more power, math, and money to ensure they keep pace with international competitors, experts recently told a federal hearing.

In a panel discussion before the House Subcommittee on Energy (video replay available), vendors and academics discussed how the Department of Energy's Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program could better support their needs. This includes funding, of course, and those issues were covered in an HPCWire article. However panelists also discussed technical issues that may keep American supercomputing environments from reaching their full potential.
