Supercomputing 2017 is just around the corner and we’re eager to show off the cool things we’ve been doing. Over the past few months, we’ve been proud to see our cross-cloud data fabric helping enterprises “Lift, Shift, and Go!” to run real-world scientific workloads on public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud infrastructure.  

Along these lines, we’ve recently collaborated with Silicon Therapeutics to demonstrate how Elastifile facilitates scalable, computationally-intensive biomolecular predictive modeling across massive data sets on Google Cloud Platform. The results are pretty amazing.

If you’re attending SC17, please stop by our booth (#781) to learn more about this exciting science and how it is accelerated by the power of Elastifile’s cross-cloud data fabric.

Also, check out the following presentations in the Google booth (#443) on Wednesday, November 15th:

  • 12:30pm: "Large-scale Computing for Drug Discovery" by Vipin Sachdeva (Principal Investigator, Silicon Therapeutics) and Joe Cronin (Sales Engineer, Google)
  • 2:30pm: "Lift, Shift & Go! A simple, high-performance, POSIX file system from Elastifile & Google Cloud" by Dave Payne (VP of Solutions Architecture, Elastifile)

We hope to see you there!
