Cloud Computing & HPC: A powerful combination driving innovative use cases
Chaired by Philippe Bricard, president, UCit

HPC from Desktop to Cloud…
An ISV point of view on deployment models

By Wim Slagter, HPC and Cloud Alliance Director Ansys

According to a recent survey, 40% of engineers limit the size or amount of detail for every simulation model due to compute capacity and turnaround time constraints. Recognizing this, smaller and mid-sized companies now seek more affordable, accessible and powerful hardware, making high-performance computing (HPC) a necessity. Nevertheless, many misconceptions still surround HPC and cloud deployment models as well as HPC and cloud licensing. These fallacies prevent adoption in product development scenarios where HPC — available on-premise on in the cloud — clearly provides a higher return on investment.

This presentation dispels the leading misconceptions and provides insight to help you steer around possible failure points as you consider on-premise or cloud-based HPC and how they complement each other.
