Using an iPad to Manage A Supercomputer

The Apple iPad is proving popular with executives who want to travel lighter. Can the iPad manage all the tasks you’d normally perform on a notebook computer? In this video, Steve Finn from BAE Systems demonstrates how he configured his iPad to remotely manage his 20,000-processor Altix ICE high performance computing system. This demo was posted at The Rich Report, the YouTube channel for HPC industry veteran Rich Brueckner and the InsideHPC web site, which Brueckner recently acquired from founder John West. This video runs about 4 minutes.
