Day 2 at SUSECON 2016
Adapting to Win (with our Partners)
Day 2 kicked off with Michael Miller talking about the theme for the day, ‘Adapt to Win’, ‘SUSE storage, cloud and container solutions really help you respond quickly to changing business needs. Because you have to be quick, but you also have to keep your costs down. Rapid response also means faster innovation…which every company loves.’
Michael then introduced Dr. Thomas Di Giacomo, Chief Technology Officer who joined SUSE this last year. Thomas dived straight in to talk about Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI), Dev/Ops and the future of management and orchestration and why SUSE’s open-open approach made him ‘so happy to be here’.
The next guest was Katsue Tanaka, SVP, Head of Unit, Platform Software BU, Fujitsu to talk about the announcement today in which both companies are committing development, marketing and sales resources that will bring Hybrid cloud, mission-critical, and container solutions to the market with greater support for large-scale environments.
Michael moved on to dive deep into how HPC was entering new areas such as Finance and Healthcare with Figin Ulgen, General Manager, HPC Platform Software Intel Corporation. “This is where OpenHPC comes in, we at SUSE come in, and Intel comes in. With this combined effort to create a reliable, consistent platform that can be used with standard hardware, we’re making the power of HPC available to everybody” said Michael.
The Keynote once again wrapped up with a Technology Preview and everyone left for another day of sessions followed by a private party at the National Space Museum.
