SC15 Attracted Attendance of Nearly 13,000

Last week's SC15 conference in Austin for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis attracted a record-breaking 12,903+ registered attendees. The SC15 Exhibition was sold out, with 217 industry-focused exhibits, including 43 first-time exhibitors and 113 international exhibitors from 23 countries (outside the US). In all, there was a total of approx. 137,000 net square feet of exhibit space and 343 industry and research organizations.

During the conference, Austin also became the hub for the world’s fastest computer network - SCinet (SC15’s custom network) which made 1.62 (16 100G + 2 10G) Terabits of bandwidth available to exhibitors and attendees. The network featured 84 miles of fiber deployed throughout the convention center and $18 million in loaned equipment.

The entire Plenary is available online.

SC16 will be held next November 13th-18th in Salt Lake City, Utah.
