Commercial High Performance Computing Conference and Exposition
March 19-20, Orlando, FL

Clustering and Grid architectures. Parallel processing. 64-bit computing. High-end Linux. Come learn about the latest advancements in these areas and many others at the Commercial High Performance Computing Conference & Exposition ().

Hosted by and sponsored by Dell, Microsoft, Intel, Sun Microsystems, IBM, Oracle, Gridfrastructure, Dolphin Interconnect, Racksaver, Etnus and others, the Commercial High Performance Computing Conference & Expo is the only industry event that is dedicated to providing IT and business executives an understanding of all of the issues related to the application of high performance computing (HPC) technologies and techniques to mainstream corporate and commercial business systems in five main tracks:
- Commercial High-Performance Computing Trends (including Grid computing),
- "Scaling Up": Processors, Multiprocessors and Parallel Processing,
- "Scaling Out": Clusters and Distributed Computing,
- RASP Optimization (Reliability, Availability, Scalability, Performance),
- Applications, Storage and Information Management.

Media co-sponsors for the Commercial High-Performance Computing Conference and Exposition include HPCWire (Premier Media Co-sponsor),, Grid Computing Planet, ServerWatch, EarthWeb (Datamation), Solaris Guide, Linux Today, and others.
