20 Most Promising HPC Solution Providers - 2015

The buzz across industry is Data. Every organization, irrespective of the sector, has accumulated wealth of data. Traditional computers are unable to process such large amount of data as the computing power of these systems takes too long to answer questions pertaining to research or astronomical calculations or engineering designs. Apart from this, enormous amount of data brings along complexities such as storage and security which need to be addressed effectively and efficiently. The area that specifically focuses on increasing the computational speed in order to address these issues is High Performance Computing. The IT industry is already making strides to avail HPC a cheaper reality for the companies and organizations. According to Computerworld 2015 Forecast Study, 22 percent of IT spending in 2015 will be towards High Performance Computing. HPC ecosystem has already seen influx of revenue from $2 billion to $21.9 billion in the past two decades.

For organizations that are already using traditional, resource extensive High Performance Computers in terms of power, cooling and real estate, there are companies working towards replacing these exhaustive systems and provide cheaper alternatives without compromising the efficiency. The emphasis in on providing a robust solution that stands test of time. Moreover, the non-IT industries and labor intensive industries require simulators to build models that provide accurate prediction based on the historical data.

In our selection, we looked at vendor’s capability to provide technology solutions to streamline operations in a faster, less resource consuming manner, while keeping the costs under control. A distinguished panel of CEOs, CIOs, CMOs, VCs, analysts, and the CIO Review editorial board has selected top players from over three hundred companies. We present to you CIOReview’s 20 Most Promising High Performance Computing Technology Solutions Providers.
