“HPC platform efficiency and the challenges for a system builder”

Drs. Martin Hilgeman, EMEA Technical Director, High Performance Computing (HPC)

Dell EMC, Amsterdam, Netherlands



“With all the advances in massively parallel and multi-core computing with CPUs and accelerators it is often overlooked whether the computational work is being done in an efficient manner. This efficiency is largely being determined at the application level and therefore puts the responsibility of sustaining a certain performance trajectory into the hands of the user. It is observed that the adoption rate of new hardware capabilities is decreasing and lead to a feeling of diminishing returns. This presentation shows the well-known laws of parallel performance from the perspective of a system builder. It also covers through the use of real case studies, examples of how to program for energy efficient parallel application performance.”

MARTIN HILGEMAN DELLMartin Hilgeman (1973, Woerden, The Netherlands) has a Master’s Degree in Physical and Organic Chemistry obtained at the VU University of Amsterdam. He has worked at SGI for 13 years as a consultant and member of the technical staff in the applications engineering group, where his main involvement was in porting, optimization and parallelization of computational chemistry and material sciences applications for MIPS, Intel Itanium 2 and Intel x86 platforms.

Martin joined Dell EMC in 2011, where he is acting as a Technical Director for HPC in Europe, Middle East and Africa. His main interests are into application optimization and modernization, memory access patterns, MPI single sided messaging and optimization of parallel workloads. Lately, Martin has also accepted the responsibility for leading the Artificial Intelligence strategy for Dell EMC in the same region as mentioned above.
