Optimizing Scientific Computations Using the Power of HPC in the Cloud

Thursday, July 28, 2022

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About the Event

Engineers and scientists are continuously looking to optimize and accelerate their scientific computations while being able to tackle more complex, higher fidelity, and tightly coupled simulations. Traditionally, the lack of optimized and finite HPC hardware “on-site” has been the major barrier to achieving this objective. On top of preventing engineering teams from being agile this leads to canceled projects and missed revenue due to inefficient usage of hardware and long queue times.

As the need for HPC in the cloud continues to grow, Rescale has created an intelligent platform that allows companies to be software driven. With access to diverse HPC architecture from the major cloud providers, engineering teams can now think software first and optimize their models – without the constraints of fixed HPC resources. This “Lunch and Learn” session will be a walkthrough of the cloud HPC solution offered by Rescale and how the ‘built for the cloud’ approach optimizes performance and cost to deliver the needs and outcomes required by the enterprises of today.
