The agora (/ˈæɡərə/; Ancient Greek: ἀγορά agorá) was a central public space in ancient Greek city-states. The literal meaning of the word is "gathering place" or "assembly". The agora was the center of the athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life of the city. We decided to start the webinar initiative as a virtual agora, where to meet and share knowledge, as an attempt to educate and create content always accessible and freely.
The webinars (together with our blog) are for us like speakers' corners, where our guests can freely talk about their experience and share their point of view on different topics: from datacenter design, to Immersion Cooling integration, from the environmental and social impact of datacenters to best practises to limit the electricity waste, etc.
So far we have held three webinars, trying each time to tackle the HPC and datacenter world from a different angle.
In February, With our special guest, Daniele Rispoli, we look at HPC immersion Cooled: how Immersion Cooling applies to a HPC installation, the economics, the practicality, the challenges, the benefits and more.
In April, John Laban, from the Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP), helped us to identify all points of electricity waste in the delivery of power to datacenters and HPC installations in our first webinar broadcasted live on our YouTube Channel.
