Boston HPC Roadshow

This week we've been giving out secret passwords so that you can unlock training given by the Boston Training Academy.

 

Join Boston, our sponsors and the Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) for our 2nd annual HPC roadshow, this time coming to you digitally. We invite you to join us as we explore the current state of High Performance Computing and detail our plans for the future including an exciting announcement during our keynote.

As the digital wave advances, HPC workloads are becoming highly complex environments and as we see this dramatic shift, infrastructures must adapt to make way for the future of HPC. We invite you to join us as our experts from industry and academia as we explore the current state of High Performance Computing, bring you the latest technology updates from our sponsors, AMD, NVIDIA, Supermicro and vScaler, and dig deep in some of the hot topics in HPC at the moment including sustainable green computing and unified data analytics. 

We have a special opportunity for our attendees - a secret password will be given out during every session, for attendees who hold at least 7 passwords they can unlock training given by the Boston Training Academy on Friday 2nd October. Come back to this page to register your passwords on Thursday 1st October.
