  • HPC Eases its Way Into the Cloud

    The ongoing journey to bring more enterprise high-performance computing (HPC) workloads into the cloud has been a bumpy one with its share of roadblocks and setbacks. As anyone reading The Next Platform has seen over the years, the challenges have ranged from latency to software licensing, application portability to networking costs. That doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Pratt & Whitney…

  • High-Performance Computing: a Worthwhile Investment for Enterprise Firms?

    Just a few short months ago, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced its $1.3 billion acquisition of supercomputing leader Cray. The acquisition marked a curious venture for the HPE, who — as the lead supplier in the global high-performance computing market — had traditionally set their ambitions towards more low-key, less expensive HPC solutions, servicing mostly commercial markets. Meanwhile,…
