LOCATION: iLab - 460 Springpark Place Suite 900 Herndon, Virginia 20170 

SPEAKER: Larry Genovesi, CEO, Terascala


"Eliminating Complexity in Creating HPC Storage/Computing/Networking

Terascala has designed a powerful, low-cost blade platform for
high-density computing, storage, and networking elements.  The Terascala
Blade Cluster family provides new levels of configuration flexibility
and a fully-integrated blade management system for lights-out monitoring
and management of clusters of all sizes.  Innovative power designs
reduce heat generation while increasing density to meet the
environmental needs of large datacenter installations.  This
presentation will discuss design goals and trade-offs in the creation of
this architecture for high performance computing.
