hpc user forum mission
HPC User Forum Mission
  • To Improve The Health Of The
  • High-performance Computing Industry
  • Through Open Discussions, Information-sharing And Initiatives Involving
  • HPC Users In Industry, Government And Academia
  • Along With HPC Vendors
  • And Other Interested Parties
hpc user forum goals
HPC User Forum Goals
  • Assist HPC users in solving their ongoing computing, technical and business problems
  • Provide a forum for exchanging information, identifying areas of common interest, and developing unified positions on requirements
    • By working with users in other sectors and vendors
    • To help direct and push vendors to build better products
    • Which should also help vendors become more successful
  • Provide members with a continual supply of information on:
    • Uses of high end computers, new technologies, high end best practices, market dynamics, computer systems and tools, benchmark results, vendor activities and strategies
  • Provide members with a channel to present their achievements and requirements to interested parties

top trends in hpc
Top Trends in HPC

The global economy in HPC appears to have leveled off

    • The first half of 2010 grew by 2%
    • We are forecasting 3% to 5% growth in 2010
    • The high end of the market grew by 65% in 2009!

Major challenges for datacenters:

    • Power, cooling, real estate, system management
    • Storage and data management continue to grow in importance

Software hurdles will rise to the top for most users

    • Driven heavily by multi-core processors and hybrid systems
    • Application scaling and performance is a problem
  • SSDs will gain momentum and could redefine storage
  • GPUs are seeing real tractions in certain verticals
  • The worldwide Race on Petascale is in full speed
hpc server market size by competitive segments first half of 2010
HPC Server Market Size By Competitive Segments (first half of 2010)

HPC Servers $4,131M

Workgroup

(under $100K)

$699M

Supercomputers

(Over $500K)

$1,386M

Divisional

($250K - $500K)

$572M

Departmental ($250K - $100K)

$1,474M

conclusions
Conclusions
  • 2010 is a year of evolutionary rather than revolutionary change in the worldwide HPC market
    • Incremental advances will help, but not resolve persistent issues, such as highly parallel programming challenges, power and cooling costs, and software licensing costs
  • IDC predicts the HPC market will resume growth in 2010 and grow by 3% to 5% in 2010
    • And then will rebuild to exceed $11 billion by 2014
  • The recovery will benefit HPC segments unevenly:
    • With hard-hit verticals such as automotive recovering more slowly than oil and gas, or government and academia
    • The Supercomputer segment growth will remain turbo-charged by government spending aimed at HPC leadership and “petaflop club” membership
