Announcement: Design Infrastructure Alley at DAC 2018!

Published by:

This has been in the works for several months.  The vision we had was to take the great conversations we’ve been having about License Management at the CELUG Co-Located Conference at DAC and expand the scope to include other IT management topics specifically as it relates to managing Design Environments.

This is the year to go to DAC if you manage an HPC Environment in support of Engineering Workloads!  There will be Exhibitors as well as industry peers on hand to talk about how we better manage our existing environments, strengthen our security without compromising productivity, and talk about how we embrace new technologies such as Cloud Computing.

Be sure to see the official announcement on the DAC website.
