Hitting The Wallet

This week it's your turn. How has the economy effected you HPC plans for next year? You are invited to participate.

In my previous column I spoke about some of the forecasts for the HPC market. I would like to expand on this issue a bit further. Actually, I would like you to expand on this issue a bit further. I also mentioned how some users are “hitting the wall” in terms of performance. Users are running codes on multi-core systems and seeing less performance. Now, I wonder how hard the recent economic downturn is “Hitting the HPC Wallet”. So rather than ranting about some HPC issue, I want to hear from you about your plans or your company’s plans for next year.

There are two ways to contribute. First, answer the poll just below the “Community Tools” box to the right. I have tried to craft it so that we get the most information out of one question. Please donate two mouse clicks to the cause. In addition, once you vote, you can see the results of poll. You may wish to check back as the number of votes are cast.

A second way to to help is to leave a comment about how you feel the economy is effecting next years HPC expenditures. Before you decline my invitation, let me explain what I would like to see. First, I am not looking for any company specific information, please be anonymous. It is important to mention the business sector (Pharma, CAE, CFD, Academic, Finance, Government, Oil and Gas, etc.) so we can get a feel for different areas of the market. Next, just give a few sentences about what you are experiencing by expanding on your answer to the poll question. It is that simple.

My goal it to capture some responses that may not show up on the fancy bar charts from the professional market watchers. Not that the bar charts aren’t worthwhile, but rather a few comments from the trenches are always helpful. There is no secret motive here. The poll and comments are open to the community for all to see. It is your chance to help the community get a sense of where we are in these uncertain times.

Of course you may have a good rant that needs airing. Those are welcome as well, as long as you stick to HPC. Although you may actually be an economist, our goal is the HPC market and not necessarily working out a way to get economy out of this mess — unless it involves HPC of course.

I have intentionally made this column short. Assuming you usually read the whole column, then you will have an extra 2-3 minutes to answer the poll question and provide a few comments. If we get enough responses, I’ll summarize them for next weeks column. Now get busy.

What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
