In these past years the HPC service has been widely spread from research centres or big companies to small/home office environments. Lower prices and constant technology enhancements like GPU computing or multicore CPU let computing services available (i.e Amazon or Google) and affordable worldwide. The HPC battlefield has new and tough players. Which services and technologies will lead the way? Do I have to be worried about it? What can I do to survive the prune? In this presentation we will try to look ahead and made an educated guess in order to answer these questions.
HPCKP (High-Performance Computing Knowledge Portal) is an Open Knowledge project focused on technology transfer and knowledge sharing in the HPC Science field.
