We are witnessing a major shift in attitude when it comes to cloud adoption. 451 Research estimates that 90 percent of companies will be in the cloud by 2019. Furthermore, the cloud category is the fastest growing HPC category at 14-18 percent. New frameworks, containers and cloud are changing how enterprises look at technical computing, to name a few factors. Yet what does this mean for the on-prem HPC users looking to migrate to the cloud? This webinar covers the shift that digital leaders are making to move faster toward off-premises IT - resulting in accelerated business and IT transformation. It also covers how Univa is helping its customers migrate their HPC workloads to the cloud, to include some unique hybrid cloud bursting case studies.

William Fellows is a cofounder of The 451 Group. As VP of Research, he is responsible for the Cloud Transformation Channel at 451 Research. This Channel provides a point of intellectual convergence for 451 Research around cloud computing, in much the same way that the industry is converging on cloud from all points. In addition to keeping tabs on players entering the cloud and IT services space with disruptive business models, new technology and innovations in service delivery, William has also created 451 Research's Digital Economics unit. This is currently focused on helping end users, vendors and investors understand complex and confusing cloud pricing mechanisms in order to compare the cost of services (hosted, hybrid and on-premises), the cost of entry and price of participation in new markets.

Currently focused on cloud computing, he has identified and tracked other early adopter markets, including grid computing and virtualization, since the company was formed in 2000.
