HPE Tech Talk Podcast - What you should know about Exascale, Supercomputing and HPC (6 part series)

Join us in this six part series, produced together with Intel, where we explore the world of High Performance Compute with guest hosts Addison Snell from Intersect 360, Dan Olds from RadioFree HPC and Shahin Khan from OrionX.

Part 1: An Intro to Exascale, Supercomputing & HPC
High Performance Compute is everywhere today. From the weather forecast we check when we get up to the movie we wind down to at the end of the day, HPC touches many aspects of our daily lives—and the use cases keep growing. In this episode, industry experts from HPE, Pankaj Goyal and Tom Tyler, and technical computing leader from Intel, Bob Bourroghs, discuss why and how HPC and supercomputing have become essential to commercial enterprise. Confused about the difference between HPC and supercomputing and if you’re using the term “cluster” correctly? They’ll answer that, too, and more.

Part 2: Markets, industries & innovation driven by High Performance Compute
If you assumed high performance computing was the exclusive domain of large academic or government research installations, you’re forgiven. It’s a common assumption. The reality is that over half the industry spending today comes from commercial markets. In this episode, HPC and AI leaders from HPE, Bill Mannel  and Brandon Draeger, and HPC leader from Intel, Jeff Watters, explain why we’re seeing HPC and supercomputing techniques permeating every type of industry. They also place HPC in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic—it’s contribution to research efforts as well as the pandemic’s effect on the HPC market.
