HPC Budget Allocation Map: Industry Averages

Key findings of this report include:

  • The overall share spent on hardware declined slightly in 2013 after a robust increase in 2012. We see this as a rebalancing of expenditures after many sites refreshed their server installations, rather than a slowdown.

  • Staffing continued as the second-largest overall expense. 

  • Software as a share of the overall HPC budget has remained extremely stable at about 14%.                          See more
