The landscape of questions presented by the intersection of high-performance computing, high-performance storage, and high-performance networking is always full of questions. This panel attempts to raise at least as many questions as it answers by engaging the panelists and the audience in a rapid-fire dialogue with no holds barred. Questions such as, What would we do with terabit networks if we had them? Will software defined networking change everything? Is TCP dead for bulk data transfer? Should we all start using RDMA? Will solid-state disks outstrip networks? Are parallel filesystems really important? Whatever happened to P2P? Will users continue using thumb drives? How can we stop them? Should we stop them? Does SaaS solve this problem? Will our data start to live "in the cloud"? How does that drive our plans for the future? Strap on your shoes, grab a rhetorical racquet, and join the conversation!
