HPC Advisory Council global membership tops 300
The HPC Advisory Council has announced that its global membership has increased to more than 300 member organisations. Council members consist of a wide range of companies and end-users, including best-in-class original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), strategic technology suppliers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and selected end-users across the entire range of HPC market segments. The complete list of members can be found on the HPC Advisory Council website.
Formed in May of 2008, the HPC Advisory Council continues to bridge the gap between high-performance computing (HPC) use and its potential, bringing the beneficial capabilities of HPC to new users for better research, education, innovation and product manufacturing. The council has developed more than 150 best practices for more than 40 HPC and cloud-based applications, providing the HPC end-user community with valuable information to improve their system and application usage.
The HPC Advisory Council holds multiple conferences throughout the year that focus on HPC education, hands-on and classroom training, and overviews of new important HPC developments and trends. The next conference, which will be held at Tel-Aviv University in Tel-Aviv, Israel on 7 February 2012, will focus on HPC usage models and benefits; the future of supercomputing in Israel; latest technology developments and trends around the world; how high-performance computing can benefit small to large businesses and accelerate research activities; and HPC best practices and advanced HPC topics.
