HPC is transforming the world. The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC15) has been in Austin this year. It was our first supercomputing and we can only say it’s a great show. During these three 12-hour days, we managed to see a quarter of the exhibit booths only. We did not realise how fast the show went bye!
Thanks to all the people who gave us the opportunity to present our work, especially to OpenMP and OpenACC organizations who gave us the opportunity to present Parallware in their booths. In July the project will be four years old and SC15 has been an early gift for our team. We will not forget this experience easily, the city, the food, the friendly people, the perfect organization of the event and, especially, seeing that we have a clear value proposition for the HPC market. We have confirmed and updated the roadmap to put in value the Parallware technology. We have a lot of work back to the office but we are full of energy. It is impressive to see so much technology in a single location, scientists and companies around the world trying to solve the great challenges of society. #hpctransforms
We also attended the StartupHPC event organized by Shahin Khan, Partner of OrionX. We enjoyed all the presentations, it was a great material of startups in the HPC market. In one of the slides, the sales funnel was described in such a way that, for a moment, I thought I was in Spain about to start a party. They showed us a very significant picture. The aim is that the martini glass becomes a pitcher of beer. From now, when we see or think about a sales funnel graph, this image will come to our minds.
The next year SC16 will be in Salt Lake City in Utah from 13-18 November. SC16 will be a new opportunity to learn about many of the technologies that will shape the future of large-scale technical computing and data-driven science. We have a year ahead to work hard and seize the opportunities presented to us to be in this supercomputing.
Looking forward to seeing you at SC16 !
