High Performance Computing (HPC) & Grid Awareness Day 2012
“It’s often said that “information is power,” the suggestion being that the more information you have access to, the greater the influence you can have — whether in business, in society, in politics or elsewhere. But in the digital age, as the sheer volume of information being generated has started to overtake many organizations’ ability to extract value from it, the information-power equation seems too simplistic. Now, real power flows from an ability to deal effectively with vast amounts of information.”
HPC support virtual prototyping and large scale data modeling ---- HPC plays a key role in designing and improving many industrial products- including automobiles, airplanes, pharmaceutical drugs, microprocessors, implantable medical devices, finding & extracting Oil & Gas, manufacturing consumer product, modeling complex financial scenarios and investment instrument, complex planning , creating animated films , climate & weather forecasting.
