SC15 Releases Short Video on Why High Performance Computing Matters to PayPal

As one of the world's largest internet payment companies, PayPal handles massive amounts of sensitive data.  Hear from Ryan Quick, principal architect for advanced technologies from PayPal, on how they strive to use high performance computing to make every day online transactions something you don't even have to think twice about.

According to Quick, handling such massive amounts of data is like drinking from a fire hose.  He stresses how they aim to make every transaction a smooth and safe process whether dealing with regulations from country to country, state to state, or transaction to transaction. In 2014, PayPal moved $228 billion in 26 currencies across more than 190 nations, generating a total revenue of $7.9 billion.

This is another chapter in a series of short videos focusing on why HPC is important and of critical value to society. It is part of a three-year SC "HPC Matters" campaign.  Click here to view the entire HPC Matters video library.
