Beowulf Users Group Presents: Beowulf and Grid Computing - IBM and Platform
Posted by Ken Farmer, Friday May 14 2004 @ 10:18AM EDT
GCN: Join The Baltimore Washington Beowulf Users Group (BWBUG) on June 8th to learn about the business and technical aspects of grid computing using Linux clusters. Northrop Grumman Information Technology has been the primary sponsor for the BWBUG for the last three years. The BWBUG meets on the second Tuesday of the month in a Northrop Grumman facility in McLean, Virginia or Greenbelt Maryland. The BWBUG invites the technical leaders of the High Performance Computer Industry the Grid Computing Industry and the software companies that provide solutions for Linux Clusters in the Enterprise, to present the latest innovations and technological advances. There have been previous speakers from SGI, HP, SUN, Intel Oracle and others.
The business discussion will provide an overview of grid computing - grid fundamentals, industry trends, open standards, and a look into how grid computing is helping agencies, commands, and businesses realize significant value. The technical session will discuss the practicalities of integrating Linux clusters into grid computing environments and explain why out-of-the-cluster thinking is needed to identify and address the requirements of collaboration implicit in grid computing. A roundtable discussion featuring panelists from Platform, IBM, Northrop Grumman Information Technology, and other industry experts will follow.
