A high performance computer depreciates by an average £1 million per year. That’s £2,740 a day. So, how should you set about getting maximum value out of the hardware you have invested in? And, can you prove a return on your investment?
In this presentation, you will hear:
Dr Ben Bennett, Head of HPC Marketing, SGI
Lee Carter, VP EMEA & APAC, Bright Computing
The business of research is getting more and more data intensive, as digital technology spreads into every discipline. At Jisc we provide shared services such as the Janet network, eduroam wireless roaming and shared data centres – reaching around 18 million people in the research, education and skills sectors. In this session we will hear from institutions that are using Jisc services to reduce the “time to science”, enable ground breaking research collaborations, and achieve significant operating efficiencies.
In this session, you will:
Martin Hamilton, Futurist, Jisc
Alison Davis, CIO, Francis Crick Institute
Tim Cutts, Head of Scientific Computing, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
Over the last fifteen years, Red Oak Consulting has built up a unique insight into why HPC projects fail – and (more importantly!) how to prevent this. Some of the reasons are “obvious,” others less so. Drawing on this experience, the first half of the talk with take a quick canter through a typical HPC project lifecycle and the second half of the talk will take a couple of recent real-life examples where these techniques have been applied. The seminar is intended for anyone involved in delivering HPC projects, at all levels of the organisation.
