Paul Kent is Vice President of Big Data initiatives at SAS. He spends his time between Customers, Partners and the Research & Development teams discussing, evangelizing and developing software at the confluence of big data and high performance computing. A datacenter rack full of current-generation 64bit x86 processors represents a very large aggregate memory space, thousands of threads and plentiful IO that can be harnessed to solve problems at a much larger scale than we have traditionally been accustomed to.
