Building a simulation of the human heart. Pooling and crunching data from public transportation and other sources from around the world to determine travel distances and times. These are two projects Alfonso Santiago, researcher at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Charlie Davies, co-founder, technology and product director, iGeolise; are actively engaged in building. What they share in common is how they derive immense high-performance computing (HPC) resources on a cloud native platform (which Oracle offers).
Santiago and Davies shared details about how HPC has helped to solve many of their respective projects’ struggles during a The New Stack Makers podcast hosted by Joab Jackson, managing editor, during KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Barcelona. Also on hand was TJ Fontaine, a software engineer and consulting member of technical staff, for Oracle, who offered some context about Oracle’s role in these projects and in HPC on the cloud in general.
