In this guest article, our friends at Intel discuss how HPC as a Service (HPCaaS) reduces barriers to HPC and offers a cost-effective extension to on-premise solutions
"High performance data analytics (HPDA), simulation and modeling, and artificial intelligence (AI) enable significant benefits like quicker business insights, the ability to design and bring products to market faster, or real-time monitoring of financial transactions for fraud. In the past, on-premise HPC systems served as the sole mechanism to run demanding workloads like these. Today, though, moving HPC workloads to the cloud is gathering momentum as an alternate option. Cloud service providers now offer customers viable options with the scalability and speed necessary for HPC workloads..."
As costs drop and use cases multiply, high performance computing is attracting new adopters of all types and sizes...
"Expanding options include supercomputer-based HPC systems, cluster-based HPC, and cloud HPC services.
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 modeling 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..."
In this video from the Perth HPC Conference, Rob Farber from TechEnablement presents: AI is Impacting HPC Everywhere
"The convergence of AI and HPC has created a fertile venue that is ripe for imaginative researchers - versed in AI technology - to make a big impact in a variety of scientific fields. From new hardware to new computational approaches, the true impact of deep- and machine learning on HPC is, in a word, 'everywhere'. Just as technology changes in the personal computer market brought about a revolution in the design and implementation of the systems and algorithms used in high performance computing (HPC), so are recent technology changes in machine learning bringing about an AI revolution in the HPC community..."
