DescriptionHPC is on the verge of a new era: the exascale. Beyond the mere thrill of reaching new heights in terms of computing power and the potential discoveries it entails, this new frontier also brings unprecedented challenges that organizations need to address. While preparing for this new deal, three important areas are worth focusing on. First, invest in accelerated computing: GPU, FPGA, Quantum processors – which are not that far down the road! – but also AI-accelerated HPC and Edge computing. Secondly, optimize data flows through a diverse storage strategy but also through a better knowledge of application IOs. Finally, keep in mind that these transitions will only be successful if users are in a position to nurture their skills set and acquire new ones, be it quantum programming or IO monitoring, for HPC remains a collective adventure.
