Abstract:   The fast-paced Vendor Showdown replaces the well-known Hot Seat Sessions which have been a trademark of ISC for many, many years. The new format is more interactive and thus more challenging for the vendor representatives and not least more informative for the audience.
No other HPC event in the world features a session where the audience has the unique opportunity to get a compact, comprehensive overview of the current HPC market from top vendors. In just one afternoons, 18 leading vendor representatives have max. three slides each to present their company mission and HPC portfolio and to carve out why their products help to meet the mission. They then have to answer four tricky questions from the two moderators.
You just have to be there to see how vendors send their best people – CTOs and even CEOs – into the arena to fight for their products. You can sense these tough men’s nervousness and even their fear of the inquisitors. The vendor representatives will have to defend themselves for seven long minutes.
