As the interest in HPC in the Cloud grows, Cycle Computing, in conjunction with Amazon Web Services, Avere, Google, and Microsoft Azure, presented the HPC in the Cloud Educational Series at SC15 this year. This series delivered a set of in-depth discussions on key topics around leveraging Public Clouds for large computation and big data analytics.
The series was well received and we have made the presentations available for viewing. If you saw the series at SC, you may want another chance to review the material. If you missed it, this is a great chance to hear from the experts. Please take a look and let us know what you think.
