About this webinar:

High performance workloads need to be tightly bound: low latency, high bandwidth, and the application, storage and compute all in the same place. The capital outlay can be very large, with some environments costing as much as $100m to set up on-premise.

With such large capital costs, IT teams are challenged with delivering very high utilisation rates, typically over 90%. With workloads often taking days to run, IT teams must schedule effectively, and keep line of business stakeholders happy – ensuring they wait the minimum time to get critical data, and avoiding frustration from potential delays.

Many enterprises are now using a mixture of on-premise and Cloud, managing what they can on premise, bursting into the Cloud when demand from the business exceeds in-house capacity.

In this webseminar our expert panel will discuss how enterprises can rise to the financial and utilisation challenges, make their HPC fit for the future, and get the best possible performance in the cloud. Our exclusive research will also reveal key data and trends:

  • How enterprises are making use of Cloud and on-premise
  • Which hyperscale Cloud providers are in use for HPC
  • What drives choice of Cloud HPC providers
  • Satisfaction with providers
  • Key challenges & frustrations with HPC

Join us and find out how UK enterprises are optimising utilisation, keeping business stakeholders happy, and get a glimpse of the future for HPC.
