High Performance Computing: The Time is Now

In today’s data-driven world, high performance computing (HPC) is emerging as the go-to platform for enterprises looking to gain deep insights into areas as diverse as genomics, computational chemistry, financial risk modelling and seismic imaging. Initially embraced by research scientists who needed to perform complex mathematical calculations, HPC is now gaining the attention of a wider number of enterprises spanning an array of fields.

“Environments that thrive on the collection, analysis and distribution of data – and depend on reliable systems to support streamlined workflow with immense computational power – need HPC,” says Dale Brantly, director of systems engineering at Panasas, an HPC data-storage-systems provider.

Although adoption by small- and medium-size enterprises remains relatively scarce, the technology holds great potential for organisations that are willing to make the investment in technology and staff expertise.
