Key details and answers to common questions

Terms like "cloud" and "supercomputing" take on different meanings in different contexts. Cray’s and Markley's novel offering of supercomputing in the cloud has evoked natural questions along the lines of "What does that mean?" and "How would I use it?" And perhaps most fundamentally, "What sort of question is best answered by a Cray supercomputer?"

This webinar features Chris Dwan — an independent consultant with over 20 years of experience in designing and building computing and data storage infrastructure for genomics — along with Cray and Markley. Chris will offer insight and perspective on how the fusion of supercomputing and big data is driving unprecedented capabilities.
