The ISC High-Performance Event (ISC), formerly known as International Supercomputing Conference, is one of the most important events in the high-performance computing (HPC) industry, bringing together some of the world’s most prominent researchers, developers, vendors, and users to discuss the latest advancements in HPC technology. Microsoft Azure has had a major presence at ISC for several years now, and this year’s conference will be no exception.
Looking back at ISC 2022
At ISC 2022, we showcased the latest HPC solutions for Azure HPC, including the general availability of several new products. These solutions are designed to help organizations of all sizes take advantage of the power and flexibility of Azure for their HPC workloads.
Key themes for us in the past have been around showcasing our latest advancements in HPC and AI infrastructure, and how our solutions can help businesses accelerate their research, streamline their operations, and achieve their business goals. In addition, we demonstrated the value of our partnerships with various industry leaders and how we collectively enable customers to leverage the latest technologies in HPC and AI. We also highlighted our commitment to providing secure and scalable cloud solutions to meet the demands of the most complex workloads.
Key themes to help businesses at ISC 2023
As we look forward to the upcoming event, these key themes are even more important to discuss with customers and find ways for them to do more with less in this environment of macroeconomic uncertainty. Our experts combined with our key partners in this space are truly incredible at helping businesses optimize their cloud spend and leverage the best technology for the right ROI to get the fastest results possible.
AI is also a key theme in our current landscape, with big breakthroughs happening recently in this space, and will flow through into our presence at the event. Whether you’re working on image and speech recognition, natural language processing, or predictive modeling, a powerful infrastructure is needed to power and accelerate these workloads.
This year we’re a silver sponsor for the ISC 2023 event. We’ll have both a booth on-site (C318) and a virtual presence. We’ll have several presentations per day around key topics in the HPC and AI spaces, given by Microsoft experts and partners. We’ll also have some presentations from customers, where you can learn more about how other companies are accelerating their workloads on the cloud and ask questions.
Antigoni Chrysostomou, Director Specialist Management, Microsoft.
Come hear about the following topics in this year’s Vendor Showdown:
- Microsoft’s strategy to continue investing in the newest CPUs and graphic processing units (GPUs) with AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA—building genuine HPC and AI infrastructure at scale.
- How we are running Linux on our HPC systems and we can run message passing interface (MPI) jobs on Azure.
- How Azure is achieving world-class performance optimized often with special versions of CPUs not available on prem or with other cloud vendors on the market.
- Microsoft’s strategy around AI infrastructure for training AI models.
- Quantum Computing and the ability to run quantum use cases on today’s HPC infrastructure.
- Examples of how we help customers achieve more.
