I’d like to invite you at HIPEAC (European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation) conference in Zagreb, April 27-28, 2017.
There I’ll have a presentation about how to build IT system and how HPC technologies like parallelism and clustering can help.
This is excerpt from the announcement.
Josip Pojatina, Solution Architect, mStart, http://www.mstart.hr/en/, HPC in Retail Industry:
In today’s rapidly changing business where time is everything, being able to react promptly is becoming more important than ever before.
When one has to administer one of the largest systems in Europe with more than 50.000 queries per second on average, every component has to be exploited to their full extent.
This is where HPC comes to rescue.
By choosing HW and SW components that can scale vertically and horizontally, and are flexible enough to respond on every business request, proper architecture in place, good database design and most important optimized applications that can run in parallel, are prerequisite to keep the business able to respond on any kind of challenges.
In this presentation I’ll present the most important parts of such large IT system, and what performance boost you can expect from each part of it.
At the end, some heavy computational tasks (like planning and forecasting, promotions, deals etc.) will be presented, as well as our plans for the future improvements.
