HPC in the Cloud (vs. on-prem)

Our Research Computing Roundtable will be discussing HPC in the cloud vs. on-prem. Our panelists bring a wealth of knowledge and are happy to answer your questions during the live stream.

Obviously, the fundamental difference between cloud vs on-premise software is where it resides. On-premise software is installed locally, on your business’ computers and servers, where cloud software is hosted on the vendor’s server and accessed via a web browser and other client software.

Here we will explore the pros and cons.
