When it comes to large-scale datacenters and supercomputers, the general perception is that these technologies are far out of reach to the common user, whether in the enterprise or consumer computing contexts. However, a number of trends in computing at the extreme scale are merging with “lower end” technologies, including “big data” and, of course, the cloud, to create a perfect storm for a complete computing revolution.

Along the way, there are some issues that need to be addressed, however, especially in terms of energy efficiency and technological barriers, including both the power and memory wall. This show will provide an overview of where we are at the extreme scale of computing and how the challenges present there now present a lens into the future of mainstream computing’s challenges in the future. Join us and Tom and Nicole Hemsoth discusses the issues.

Nicole Hemsoth is the Managing Editor of HPCwire–a publication that has been covering the global supercomputing community for almost 30 years.

Her perspective pulls from across the enterprise and research spectrum of high performance computing to address the system, application and performance-tuning elements of modern supercomputing facilities, architectures and user scenarios. As the supercomputing and enterprise computing communities begin to coalesce further, Hemsoth explores the ways in which HPC has moved more into the mainstream, while still recognizing the critical work that takes place at global research centers and universities.
