The Transformation of the Datacenter: How to solve the exascale problem with this one weird trick discovered by a housewife in Cambridge

About the Presentation

This webinar will offer a comprehensive overview on the primary issues facing the modern datacenter in the drive to become higher performing and less costly, and methods to address those issues. This presentation will examine the immediate and long-term goals of the primary stakeholders in the supercomputing community, including government, academia, and industry, all three of which have an increasing footprint in the High-Performance Computing (HPC) business.

Subsequent to a discussion of the variables available to supercomputer and datacenter system designers will be an overview of the state-of-the-art, and how industry, primarily through the work of Facebook and Google, has transformed the datacenter archetype.
