During the next couple of years new exciting hardware and software technologies will define a completely new HPC landscape.
New architectures will dramatically change the way we use HPC resources and also the way we write the code. New fabric technologies will enable new ways to communicate between nodes and will also redefine the concept of scalability.
Linux containers will play a key role in application portability without impacting in the required performance of HPC workloads. At the same time new hypervisor technologies will open new opportunities to accommodate security and privacy requirements and also new features never explored before in HPC environments.
This talk will highlight the benefits of these new technologies and also the challenges that the HPC community will need to face.
