The first Data Insights Cambridge meetup of 2016 is nearly upon us. Metail looks forward to welcoming Sean McGuire, from the University of Cambridge Research Institutional Services, who will present on ‘Supercomputing for your data’.
What does Supercomputing for your Data mean?
Data proliferation and collection means that even small companies are capable of collecting vast amounts of data very quickly these days. But how do companies make the move from desktop or small compute clusters to larger clusters as their data grows? Knowledge of the tools and equipment needed to scale is not necessarily part of the existing knowledge base. This talk will describe how the Research Institutional Services (University of Cambridge) is helping companies today from a wide range of areas, from Life Science to Oil and Gas to the Manufacturing industry. We’ll cover everything from data security to how to go about designing components for a large compute and store cluster.
Sean has spent the last 20 years working for two well-known vendors in the Super Computing space:
- Intel Corporation, Director of HPC EMEA
- Seagate Storage Systems, VP EMEA
Sean has worked in sales, operations and people management before moving into senior EMEA based roles with responsibility for business unit P&L’s.
The meetup is scheduled for Thursday, February 4, 2016 at 7:00 pm at 50 St Andrew’s St, CB2 3AH. We hope to see you there, just sign up for it on the Data Insights Cambridge meetup page.
