Issue 182: iSGTW 7 July 2010

Next week: Chat live with experts about resources

What makes a grid perfect for one project, but a cloud better for another? When is a high-performance computer wasteful overkill, or a small cluster underpowered?

To answer these questions, iSGTW has invited experts from around the world to join us on Wednesday, 14 July 2010 at 10:30 a.m. CDT/4:30 p.m. CEST for a one-hour live chat - and you’re invited.

Can’t make it to the chat? No problem. For a week following the chat, an even larger host of experts will join us in our online forums to answer questions. To volunteer to serve as a forum expert, please email us at

We’ll be announcing the identity of our experts throughout the week by adding them to this page. But in the meantime, we’d like to offer you a preview of some of the experts you can expect to hear from next week.
