Big Data forcing enterprises to look into the direction of HPC solutions


26 Sep 2013 Heidelberg - Sverre Jarp, CTO at CERN openlab in Geneva, Switzerland, chaired the first ISC'13 Big Data Conference, held in Heidelberg, Germany, September 25-26, 2013. Looking back on this first edition Sverre Jarp was pleased with the outcome since all important issues with regard to Big Data had been laid out on the table. He told Primeur Magazine that Big Data is forcing enterprises to look more in the direction of HPC solutions.

One of the highlights mentioned by Sverre Jarp is that enterprises such as Paypal are already using HPC solutions for their Big Data in order to tackle fraud detection.

On the other hand enterprises do not have the ambition to become HPC specialists. So here lies a task for the HPC vendors to gear their solutions towards both the HPC market and the Big Data enterprise market, according to Sverre Jarp.

The HPC solutions have to be integrated as smoothly as possible into the Big Data enterprise market so that entrepreneurs can focus on their core business which is to create value and get return on investment.
