Harvard dean James Cuff has been invited to speak as a keynote during this spring's Data Center World Conference. He was recently quoted saying, "data centers are the back bone of civilization. For Harvard, the scientific computing power over time went from core counts in the “hundreds” to more than 60,000 CPUs today. Storage is about 15 petabytes currently."
