First held in 1986, ISC High Performance is the world's oldest and Europe's most important conference and networking event for the HPC community. It offers a strong five-day technical programme focusing on HPC technological development and its application in scientific fields, as well as its adoption in commercial environments.
Since the initial launch of ThunderX, Cavium has inspired HPC partners and end users to solve challenging compute-based problems with an innovative architecture that provides key advantages in areas such as integration, I/O, and memory bandwidth. Offering diverse configurations, ThunderX system partners deploy solutions that specifically target leading HPC market segments.
Cavium's ThunderX & ThunderX2 64bit ARMv8-based family of processors feature high-performance custom cores, single and dual socket configurations, high memory capacity & bandwidth, integrated hardware accelerators for networking, storage, and security along with highest level of I/O throughput and scalability. They are fully compliant with ARMv8-A architecture specifications including ARM's SBSA and SBBR standards, and widely supported by industry-leading OS, hypervisor and software tool and application vendors.
The ISC High Performance exhibition will feature the largest collection of HPC vendors, universities, and research organisations that come together in Europe each year.
