  • Review handouts

    • Note: We will post most of the presentations on the web site

    • Please complete the evaluation form


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

  • 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

IDC HPCMarket Update


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 Servers $4,131M

    Workgroup

    (under $100K)

    $699M

    Supercomputers

    (Over $500K)

    $1,386M

    Divisional

    ($250K - $500K)

    $572M

    Departmental ($250K - $100K)

    $1,474M


    HPC Market Results: Revenues and System Units


    HPC Vendor Revenue Shares, Q210


    Revenue Share by Vendor Supercomputer Segment, Q210


    HPC Server Processor/Sockets Metrics, First Half of 2010


    Industry/Application Segments


    HPC Server Revenue($K) Forecast 2008 - 2014


    Growth In The Broader HPC Market


    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
