In this Chip Chat podcast, Paul Nash from the Google Cloud Platform discusses the industry trends impacting IaaS and how Google Cloud Platform together with Intel are driving innovation in the cloud. “The two companies will collaborate on Anthos, a new reference design based on the 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor and an optimized Kubernetes software stack that will deliver increased workload portability to customers who want to take advantage of hybrid cloud environments. Intel will publish the production design as an Intel Select Solution, as well as a developer platform.”
For decades, high-performance computing (HPC) has played a crucial role in advancing healthcare. Enabled by techniques like next-generation sequencing (NGS), modern computer systems have helped us understand the biology of disease and helped facilitate the development of newer more effective drugs. While once deployed mainly in research, today HPC is edging ever closer to front-line clinical care supporting advanced diagnostics, genetic counseling, and personalized medicine.
