Cost Savings Benefits of Financing SaaS Solutions

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is becoming the option of choice for organizations looking for the accessibility and versatility of software solutions without the need to rely on installing and running applications on their own computer systems and data centers. By 2020, SaaS will account for roughly 60 percent of public cloud spending. Moreover, 73 percent of organizations state that almost all their apps will be SaaS-powered by 2020.

These are exciting times for anyone yearning to drive significant business value from masses of data collected on the cloud. We finally have the processing power, software frameworks and appetite of the masses to conduct most of their daily transactions on the internet. But there are pitfalls to beware of when using AI to extract full value from data. ... Full article
NASA is using flow simulations running on its Pleiades supercomputer to help design the agency’s next manned spacecraft, Orion. Crew safety is paramount, so NASA engineers are using the HPC cluster to simulate and visualize Orion’s launch abort system that would carry the spacecraft away from its booster during a launch pad or ascent abort. The flow simulations also ... Full article
“Future datacenters of all kinds will be built like high performance computers,” said Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang during a phone briefing on Monday after Nvidia revealed scooping up the high performance networking company Mellanox for $6.9 billion. If that’s your vision – as it is Nvidia’s – that’s a darn good reason to buy one of the world’s leading HPC ...
