During the week of November 12th, PW members traveled to Denver for SC23, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. We had the opportunity to share our work and meet with high-profile customers in the government, commercial, and higher education spaces.

Our CEO, Mike Wilde, and Director of Engineering, Michael McQuade, co-presented with Unni Kirandumkara of GDIT on the topic Hybrid Multi-Cloud HPC: Powering AI/ML Workflows. They presented at the Microsoft, AWS, and Google Cloud booths. The presentation covered the major pain points for research enterprises; how our middleware platform serves as a hybrid multi-cloud solution for HPC; and the key benefits of our platform, including its simplicity and award-winning AI/ML integration.

We were excited to speak with customers about upcoming features for their on-premises environments, including our interactive sessions capabilities for both on-premises and cloud HPC.

Senior Application Engineer Alvaro Vidal Torreira, Software Engineer Eric Garcia, and other PW employees gave demos to potential customers on the exhibition floor.

Thank you to Unni Kirandumkara and GDIT for sharing their booth with us and making SC possible!


We recently had the opportunity to visit the Naval Postgraduate School for the NATO Modeling & Simulation Tech Day. Our co-founder Matthew Shaxted and Michael McQuade talked to students and leaders in the military about our mission to make HPC more accessible.
