TUTORIALS

Having access to tutorials has fast become an enjoyable way of gaining further insight on a specialised topic.  In the world of HPC and Cloud Computing it is no different.  As the number of industry events continues to grow so too has the need for industry specialist tutorials.   As the high-tech industry of supercomputing and HPC continues to evolve, the demand for industry experts to share their experiences has become an all-import factor for industry exhibitions.

The transfer of knowledge is a value embraced by all at Red Oak Consulting.  We believe it is through the sharing of knowledge and expertise that challenges can be overcome, the unknown can become the known and life can become just that little bit easier!

The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t happen overnight, it comes from many years of experience.  It comes from experiencing both the good and the bad, the successes and the failures and from having the drive, focus and passion for excellence.

As a business Red Oak Consulting has earnt a reputation as being one of the very best in our field.  Since 2004, we have undertaken every type of High-Performance Computing / Supercomputing challenge there is.  It is because of this we are proud to speak and present at many of the leading industry events.

Regardless of distance we have presented at some of the most prestigious  events across the globe: SC, ISC, CIUK, HPC & Big Data to name but a few.

To further demonstrate our commitment to the sharing of knowledge and HPC, in 2017, Red Oak Consulting established our very own HPC and Cloud Computing Seminars.  These seminars are an annual event, free to attend and delivered in a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere.  With a selection of invited guest speakers from both the supplier and customer side, our seminars have established themselves, as a must go to event.  If you would like to know more or have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
