Abstract of the Talk – Big Data and HPC

The emergence of commodity multi-core blade servers is changing the landscape of high-performance computing quickly and profoundly. It coincides with the exponential increase in data – digital information streaming in from intelligent/smart devices that pervade our lives today available on ever larger, faster and cheaper data storage arrays.

Processing the data now requires larger computing resources. The two computing disciplines (Big Data, HPC) are merging on a largely common platform and this presents good opportunities for improving the state of the art; both in speed as well as volumes of data processed.

A new generation of software technologies for analytics operating on enormous data stores is the outcome. This talk describes the evolution of Big Data and High Performance Computing, details approaches taken, reflects on lessons learned, and discusses some of the current challenges in this area.
