High-performance computing (HPC) is a multibillion-dollar market that has historically focused on academia and the public sector. As the demand for high processing power and speed have increased substantially across industries, HPC is starting to make inroads into various commercial sectors including but is not limited to finance, transaction processing, chemistry, and data warehousing. In fact, these commercial markets contribute to more than 50 percent of HPC usage today, and this share is expected to grow gradually in the near future.
With organizations increasingly adopting HPC, managing larger and complicated data sets as well as analytic workloads has become a major challenge. As a resolution to these issues, organizations can incorporate advanced machine learning and deep learning capabilities into their existing HPC infrastructure, and in turn, boost the processing and computation power of these machines. Integration with artificial intelligence (AI) can further bolster the potential of HPC to solve some of the critical problems in business, engineering, science, and medicine. For organizations that find it onerous to manage HPC infrastructure, the availability of cloud-based HPC services is an alternative route that offers similar performance characteristics, thereby simplifying the task of upgrading the existing HPC environments or creating entirely new ones.
With numerous HPC solution providers in the industry today, finding the right solution is often critical for businesses. Our distinguished panel comprising of key decision makers and experts, along with the editorial board has selected the Top 10 HPC Solution Providers of 2018 in Europe, enabling the development of innovative technologies while also offering outstanding computing power.
