About This Webinar
How well do you know your organisation's edge? Better yet, how far away is your data from it?

Well for one organisation, NASA, that answer is probably a longer distance than others. This is why HPE and NASA collaborated to put a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) supercomputer aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The ultimate goal? To prove the technology's ability to operate in the harsh conditions of space while performing data centre level compute processing at the edge.

On behalf of Hewlett Packard Enterprise together with Intel® and in partnership with VMware, you are invited to join us for this exciting session featuring the project lead Mark R. Fernandez (US), as we shine a light on this exciting project and the learnings which all enterprises can take with regards to edge IT.
  • A look at the edge-to-cloud distribution and the emergence of edge-compute
  • A look at the use-cases the enterprise has been creating around edge technologies
  • At the Edge of the Edge: insights on HPE’s Spaceborne Computer-2 project and taking the edge to space
  • Key learnings from the project and what this might mean for edge innovation
  • Deploying closer to earth. How we are using this technology locally.
