Visionary HPC Organizations Novartis and NCI Australia Join the Panel to Share Industry Expertise, Experience and Insights

BOULDER, Colo. and MELBOURNE, Australia – May 23, 2022 – Arcitecta, a creative and innovative data management software company, and Spectra Logic, a global leader in data management and data storage solutions, today announced that they will participate on a Birds-of-a-Feather session with NCI Australia and Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research to address the question, “Does HPC Really Need Data Management?” at ISC High Performance 2022, in Hamburg, Germany, on May 31, 2022. The session will address immediate computational needs and long-range archival requirements for data access, management and preservation, using real-world use cases and best practices. ISC Show attendees can visit Spectra Logic at booth #C301.

Participants will include:

  • Jason Lohrey, Arcitecta, Founder and CEO
  • Matt Starr, Spectra Logic, Chief Technology Officer
  • Nick Whalen, Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, Architect Data Engineering
  • Allan Williams, National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), Deputy Director (Innovative Compute Environments)

Ever-growing datasets are critical to HPC organizations, enabling groundbreaking scientific, medical and technological discoveries, but they come with their own unique set of challenges. Common data management woes include siloed data, where data becomes unfindable and inaccessible; unprotected data that can be jeopardized by ransomware; overburdened environments that lose performance as they scale to petabytes or exabytes; and primary storage that becomes overloaded with inactive datasets making storage cost prohibitive. Effective data and storage management can drive accelerated outcomes while preserving data for future use and examination.

Plan to attend Birds-of-a-Feather session “Does HPC Really Need Data Management?”

“NCI’s highly-integrated scientific computing facility provides world-class high-performance computational services to thousands of scientific researchers in Australia and around the globe each year,” said Allan Williams, National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), Deputy Director (Innovative Compute Environments). “We have a vested interest in being at the forefront of digital transformation where it intersects with scientific research operations and improved quality of research services. Data-driven HPC organizations must look beyond legacy tools to a new breed of data management that can harness huge volumes of data and leverage the embedded metadata. This will ensure research data that is findable, accessible, interoperable, and re-usable.”

Spectra Logic and Arcitecta combine to provide customers with innovative, economical, secure and reliable data storage and management solutions. As storage technologies continue to grow in capacity, vast amounts of data are now readily accessible for sharing and collaboration. Finding the needed data and having it in the right location drives HPC workload performance now and into the future.
