What technology can advance rocket design, disease fighting drugs, better computer equipment, and even Climate Change at the same time? Well a simple answer is through advanced software simulations using CAD, CAM, pharmaceutical modeling, and computational fluid dynamics using High Performance Computing (HPC) of course. But digging deeper we can see that Cloud HPC, and the ability to tap into nearly limitless computing, or Utility HPC is perhaps the biggest game-changer we’re seeing.
In this presentation at ChefConf 2014, Cycle Computing CEO Jason Stowe outlines the biggest challenge facing us today, Climate Change, and suggests how Cloud HPC can help find a solution, including ideas around Climate Engineering, and Renewable Energy.
As proof points, Jason uses three use cases from Cycle Computing customers, including from companies like HGST (a Western Digital Company), Aerospace Corporation, Novartis, and the University of Southern California. It’s clear that with these new tools that leverage both Cloud Computing, and HPC – the power of Cloud HPC enables researchers, and designers to ask the right questions, to help them find better answers, faster. This all delivers a more powerful future, and means to solving these really difficult problems.
