Evolving Supercomputing in the Era of Big Data

Will big data analytics propel supercomputing architectures into new frontiers?

    I agree that supercomputing is an unnecessary term. In some sense, even Big Data is an unnecessary term. Today’s Big Data is tomorrow’s Data. I would like to hear your opinion on where you see one of the missing links in next generation Big Data architectures heading. Networks. What differentiates Big Data computation from high performance computing are the need for Big Networks to ingest huge amounts of data. Would we be limited in the future not by memory or computation but by network capacities? In my opinion next generation real time analytic architectures would also need to have robust and scalable network architectures to support the large volumes of data in motion.
