This is a space limited and unique opportunity to meet and network with fellow Grid Engine HPC users and vendors in a relaxed and friendly environment.

This two-day summit is designed to offer attendees highly specialized and focused information from Univa, our customers and our partners. This event is a must-attend for administrators, users, developers and managers of HPC and Big Data system who seek inside information that will help them approach the tasks today and to arm themselves with the knowledge and insight to solve tomorrow’s challenges with confidence.

The two days will include presentations of customer best practices, case studies, Univa technical and roadmap presentations and partner presentations. Topics will range from advances in hardware and cloud computing to the convergence of Grid Engine and Big Data.

The Summit includes lunch on both days, as well as evening activities on Monday and a gala reception on Monday night. Attendees will also get a chance to meet the Grid Engine developers in an informal setting, as they will host the Monday evening cocktail reception.

The Grid Engine Evolution Summit is the ultimate chance to become the Grid Engine expert in your HPC environment.
