Hungry For Exascale ?

ImageIf you are attending SC11 and would like to a) eat a free breakfast, b) listen to experts answer questions and talk about exascale, c) try to win an ipad2 and, d) see what I actually look like in person, then please sign up for the Panasas and SICORP special event; The Road to Exascale Computing.

The event is sponsored by Panasas, the leader in high performance parallel storage, and SICORP, a Panasas Partner for implementing Panasas-based solutions. You are invited to a special breakfast event during SC11 where you can engage with industry luminaries who are on their way to making exascale computing a reality. Details below.

Your host for this complimentary breakfast will be Panasas CEO, Faye Pairman. The morning will feature a panel discussion to be moderated by HPC writer/practitioner (and ClusterMonkey), Douglas Eadline, and will include notable HPC innovators from Panasas and Los Alamos National Lab (LANL).

Date: Wednesday, November 16
Time: 7:30 - 9:30 a.m.
Location: Grand Hyatt Hotel (directly across from the convention center)
Room: Leonesa Ballroom

  • Gary Grider, Deputy Division Leader, HPC Division at LANL
  • Henry Newman, Chief Executive Officer and CTO of Instrumental, Inc.
  • Addison Snell, Chief Executive Officer of Intersect360 Research

Discussion topics:

  • How long is the road to exascale?
  • Will the U.S. government's 2018 exascale target be met?
  • The challenges of delivering 10^18 Floating Point Operations per Second (FLOPS)
  • System capabilities needed to deliver the required 70TB/s bandwidth
  • The role that SSDs may play in exascale implementations

Space is limited so R.S.V.P. early. One lucky attendee will walk away with an Apple® iPad2 - guaranteed!
