Free June 27 webinar to share how high-performance computing (HPC) can help accommodate rapid growth of big data and new applications
Dallas, TX (June 25, 2013) –Global data center services provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) is hosting a free educational webinar on Thursday, June 27, from noon to 1 p.m. Central to share insights on expanding IT infrastructure capacity to accommodate the rapid growth of big data and new applications.
The webinar, “5 Reasons You Need High-Performance Computing Now”, will feature Fred Holloway, vice president of channels for CyrusOne and Brian Kucic, co-founder and business development director of R Systems NA, Inc. Holloway and Kucic are scheduled to discuss how high-performance computing (HPC) provides organizations with a cost-effective alternative to the risky practice of stretching existing IT infrastructure to the limits.
“Working with R Systems, CyrusOne helps enterprise customers leverage the fastest compute technology without breaking the bank by scaling up capacity only as needed,” said Holloway. “Not only can they reduce their capex spend, but our customers can reclaim internal resources to focus on driving core business revenue. The HPC solution is another great example of the best-in-class facilities and interconnectivity CyrusOne offers.”
According to Brian Kucic, co-founder and business development director of R Systems, companies with highly complex IT requirements benefit from the ability that HPC provides to more rapidly analyze large amounts of data. “For example, oil and gas companies in particular generate huge amounts of seismic and geological data. By minimizing the time it takes to analyze the data they can make wiser operational decisions and get to market faster, which amounts to improved financial performance.”
During the one-hour webinar, presenters will discuss how cloud solutions can fulfill a critical need many organizations can’t handle on their own—expanding data center capacity to accommodate the rapid growth of big data and new applications. Register for the webinar here.
