Cost-Benefit Quantification for HPC: An Inevitable Challenge

SESSION: Cost-Benefit Quantification for HPC: An Inevitable Challenge

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Thomas Ludwig, Albert Reuther, Amy Apon

ROOM:601/603

ABSTRACT:
HPC is an indispensable though expensive technology. While the discussion of cost has been part of the conversation for many years, only recently have we also seen the analyses of its benefits. Quantification is difficult and we still lack an economical model to evaluate the cost-benefit ratio, and effects to efficiency, in the industrial process and in scientific development. This BoF will present approaches to this issue and foster a discussion between investors and users. Better understanding of the methods to quantify and qualify the benefit and cost aspects will result in cost efficient computational science and engineering.
