Formed between the Universities and the private sector in Wales, High Performance Computing (HPC) Wales provides integrated supercomputing services for businesses and researchers across Wales and beyond.
With state of the art equipment housed at the University of Wales Dylan Thomas centre in Swansea, HPC Wales is host to the UK’s largest distributed supercomputing network and offers access to some of the most advanced computing technology in the world.
On Thursday the 20th February, HPC Wales and the IET Wales South West Network will be running an event to demonstrate the potential of High Performance Computing (HPC) and the opportunities available for industry and academia in Wales. Supercomputing has the capacity to handle and analyse massive amounts of data at high speed, powering breakthroughs in product, process and service development, and boosting business competitiveness.
Professor Roderick Thomas, past Chariman of the IET Wales South West Network and currently Training & Outreach Mentor for HPC Wales, will be giving an overview of the HPC Wales offering, and customer work will be showcased to demonstrate the wide ranging applications of HPC.
Delegates will also hear first-hand from Graham Foster, Technical Director for Calon-Cardio Technology Ltd, how his business utilises the HPC system in its work to develop the next generation of affordable, implantable micro blood pumps for the treatment of chronic heart failure.
