  3. Business Context “We saved $100,000 per year in personnel costs by going with Windows HPC Server over Linux." –Kurt Dobson, Scientist, Seer Technology https://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?casestudyid=4000004656 “We had no worries about the learning curve for our IT staff members either. They have reported that the Microsoft HPC environment is as reliable and easy to manage as a standard group of computers on the Windows Server operating system.” –Chuck Mahon, IT Infrastructure Manager, Western & Southern Financial Group http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?casestudyid=4000003019 "We wouldn’t have been able to scale out to adapt to regulatory changes in the past, but with Windows HPC Server 2008, it’s possible to add new nodes to our cluster—with proprietary software installed—in less than 30 minutes." –Evan Nichols, Systems Lead Analyst, Reinsurance Group of America http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?CaseStudyID=4000007380 “We’re experiencing quick development, solid performance, and ease of use. With Windows HPC Server 2008, we now have the hardware and software to help meet our scientists’ data-processing needs.” –Jean-Michel Batto, IT and Data Processing Manager, Microbial Genetics Unit Laboratory, National Institute for Agricultural Research http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?CaseStudyID=4000003935
  4. Make better decisions Drive product innovation and time to market Speed research and discovery Increase cost savings and efficiency Business Drivers
  5. Challenges Business IT Challenges Challenges Reducing the time and expense required to support the high-performance computing cluster Harnessing the power of supercomputing through the familiar Microsoft® Windows®environment Providing high-performance computing that is easier to learn and use Reducing the total cost of ownership while increasing ease of use and end-user productivity Collaborating effectively across separate domains, with the resulting reductions in speed and quality of decisions Analyzing large data sets faster and more efficiently to gain better insights Providing integration across workstations and clusters, applications and data, and departments Providing reliable remote access to high-performance computing that includes security and protection of intellectual property Integrating high-performance computing “islands” to achieve maximum use of valuable resources Managing security access to ensure data and findings are available to authorized personnel only Centrally managing server use and resource sharing

  17. Agenda Agenda Business Drivers / Challenges Demonstration Business Capabilities Summary and Next Steps
  18. Potential Business Benefits Decreases deployment times and improves the ability to bring new products to market Makes supercomputing more accessible through a familiar Windows desktop environment without requiring specialized skills or training Helps save time by providing a common productivity and development platform across technical workstations and clusters Interoperates with existing high-performance computing software infrastructure without requiring specialized skills, tools, or training
  19. Discuss your priorities with IT Map to systems requirements Understand what can be leveraged Develop a high-level road map for deploying integrated capabilities Translate back into business capabilities enabled/supported Review the proposed business capability road map Next Steps
