Scaling Engineering and Scientific Performance for the Workgroup – What’s the Best Infrastructure for You?
Watch Webcast on Thursday, November 6, 2008 2:00pm ET/11:00am PT

Science and Engineering are boundless, but many workgroups are restrained by the limitations of their current computing infrastructure. Breakthroughs in the ability to affordably deploy scalable workgroup systems is about to have a big impact on scientific, design and engineering simulation. Today’s dual and quad-core processors are already solving complicated computer-based models with greater speed and higher accuracy, but engineers and IT professionals need to evaluate more than raw computing power before upgrading their workgroup computing environment. The speakers at this online event will help you understand the alternatives available so that you may decide which solution best fits your needs and will also work best in your company’s IT infrastructure.
