HPC Webinar – Hardware vs Cloud Computing

Many scientific fields inevitably have to deal with storing large amounts of data, and intensive computation: processing geospatial data, engineering calculations, statistics, and more. In these areas, to achieve high-quality scientific results and to overcome challenges to enable effective collaboration within a scientific team, it is necessary to have both, specialised IT expertise and powerful computing resources. Just a few years ago this was important only to large companies and more often in the IT industry.

Today, this is not only the case in large companies and the IT industry but common in many scientific fields, as well as in small and medium-sized enterprises. The number of available IT solutions is quite wide and it can be challenging to pick the right one. To address this issue, an informative webinar Hardware vs Cloud Computing was held by Kristaps Bergfelds.

The seminar covered the following topics:

  • The most popular IT products/solutions, in the private sector and solutions serving as support tools in research
  • Costs for different solutions. Application of different solutions. Pros and cons in terms of functionality for each of them.
  • The typical scenarios for a scientific group and the ways of implementation with the IT solutions at play. Combining different solutions for efficient work and high-quality scientific results.

EuroCC invites you to book a free appointment to find out which IT solution could best suit your needs.
