HPC Webinar – Hardware vs Cloud Computing

Many scientific fields inevitably involve the storage of large amounts of data and intensive computation: geospatial data processing, engineering calculations, statistics and more. In these areas, both specialised IT expertise and powerful computing resources are needed to achieve high-quality scientific results and to overcome the challenges of effective collaboration within a scientific team. Just a few years ago this was only important to large companies and the IT industry.

Today, this is not only the case in large companies and the IT industry, but also in many scientific fields, as well as in small and medium-sized enterprises. The number of IT solutions on offer is quite wide and it can be challenging to choose the right solution for you. To help scientific organisations out on 17 November Kristaps Bergfelds organised an informative webinar Hardware vs Cloud Computing

The seminar covered topics such as:

  • What are the most popular IT products/solutions, both in the private sector and as support tools for researchers directly? 
  • What are the cost for different solutions? What are the applications? Pros and cons in terms of funcionality for each solution.
  • What are the typical scenarios for a scientific group and how can they be implemented with the IT solutions presented? How to combine them for efficient work and high quality scientific results?

EuroCC invites you to book an appointment to find out for free which IT solutions best suit your needs!
