HPC User Forum Mission

To improve the health of the high-performance computing industry through open discussions, information-sharing and initiatives involving hpc users in industry, government and academia along with hpc vendors and other interested parties.

Are You Concerned About...

  • What other HPC users are doing
  • The future of high performance computing
  • Your ability to procure the systems you need: e.g. procuring systems at a more optimal price and ways to save on power and cooling costs » Being able to discuss with peers similar HPC issues and find out how they overcame their obstacles
  • Selecting the right architecture for your applications — improving your ability to compare different HPC architectures and computers to meet your unique requirements
  • Selecting the right OS: UNIX, LINUX, Windows, others?

HPC User Forum Goals

  • Assist HPC users in solving their ongoing computing, technical and business problems
  • Provide a forum for exchanging information, identifying areas of common interest, and developing unified positions on requirements
  • By working with users in other sectors and vendors
  • To help direct and push vendors to build better products
  • Provide members with a continual supply of information on:
  • Uses of technical computers, new technologies, best practices, market dynamics, computer systems and tools, benchmark results, vendor activities and strategies
  • Provide members with a channel to present their achievements and requirements to interested parties
