In science and engineering, a tsunami of new experimental and computational data and a suite of increasingly ubiquitous sensors pose vexing problems in data analysis, transport, visualization and collaboration. Cloud computing and “big data” are extending our notions of computational science and engineering, bringing technical, political and economic challenges. Likewise, the end of Dennard scaling and semiconductor limitations pose new technology challenges. What are the hardware and software structures and capabilities that best exploit these capabilities and economics while providing application compatibility and community continuity? What lessons can we learn from the world of big data and HPC and how can they best co-exist? How do we optimize performance and reliability? How do we balance traditional HPC investments against big data opportunities and avoid past research infrastructure pitfalls? This talk will compare and contrast the social, technical, political and economic attributes of big data software and hardware with those of high-performance computing, drawing implementation lessons and suggesting opportunities for research and deployment.
