Top 10 HPC Solution Companies - 2021

For many years now, data has been at the core of groundbreaking scientific discoveries and game-changing innovations. Fueling this data is high-performance computing (HPC), laying the foundation for scientific, industrial, and societal advancements. From a simple laptop with a 3GHz processor to a supercomputer that can perform quadrillions of calculations per second, HPC is omnipresent.

As technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and 3D imaging evolve, the size and volume of data that organizations have to work with is growing exponentially. A task such as streamlining a live sporting event may seem simple to the end-user but is made possible only with the ability to process data in real-time. This is where HPC stands out. Complex tasks such as tracking a developing storm, testing new products, and analyzing stock trends are all made possible with HPC’s ability to process data in real-time and perform complex calculations at high speeds.

An HPC architecture involves computing servers that are networked together into a cluster. Software programs and algorithms are run simultaneously on the servers in the cluster, networked to a data storage source to capture the output. The operations seamlessly combine to complete a diverse set of tasks. While Windows and Linux are the two most popular software choices to run an HPC cluster, there are multiple companies that deliver these solutions with various configurations.
