SC12 roundup

SC12, Salt Lake Palace, Salt Lake City, Utah
This year's event was held at the Salt
Palace Convention Center.

Last week, iSGTW was at The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis – more commonly known as SC12 – in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

We spoke to general chair, Jeff Hollingsworth, about the work behind organising the event and he gave us his highlights of the week's program. We also discovered one of the world's fastest networks – set up specifically for the event – called SCinet, with almost 800 gigabits per second capacity.

In addition, you can find photographs from SC12 on the Gridcast blog and you can check out updates from the event on Twitter.

  • 9,822 attendees
