The Evolution of High Performance Computing: System Design in a Data Centric World

Classic approaches to HPC are being supplanted by a new view explicitly accounting for the myriad of data issues impacting HPC workflows. This talk will describe the motivation for a movement towards data-centric designs along with examples of the new kinds of systems and solutions beginning to appear in the market.  Along the way, we'll describe how conventional measures of value can be misleading and speculate on the kinds of value metrics these new solutions demand.
