Arm’s third annual HPC User Group session was held at SC17 in Denver, CO. Sessions featured presentations by Arm ecosystem leads, end-users, and ecosystem partners involved in the deployment of Arm servers for HPC.

Agenda topics included:

  • Arm HPC deployments: early looks, best practices, and ecosystem readiness.

  • Arm HPC technology partners: new silicon launches, OS support, and connectivity.

  • Future Arm architectural enablement for HPC.
