High Performance Computing: Accelerating Application Performance Using Hardware and Software

  • Online

This course, in partnership with IEEE Future Directions, illustrates the result of the never-ending appetite of these motivating applications that demand better accuracy, higher fidelity, and the timely delivery of actionable insights and predictions, all at the lowest possible cost. This course starts with the end in mind by answering the question, how can we satisfy the ever-increasing demand driven by the perpetually hungrier models and higher volumes of data? The answer is by building computers that can solve these continually growing scientific and business requirements by accelerating HPC application performance via the utilization of hardware and software organized in appropriate architectures.

What you will learn:

  • Consider expectations of HPC hardware and software components
  • Examine ways that HPC accelerates application performance
  • Review component choices that contribute to performance
