A New Era of Open Competition for HPC Begins

Addison Snell,

As published in The Next Platform Every year people ask me what I think the biggest news story is at the annual Supercomputing Conference (SC). I look at product announcements, of course, and SC15 promises to have some big ones, but ultimately, the biggest stories are the ones that have context and meaning beyond individual products, standards that are emerging or mergers that are evolving. In that light, this year’s most important development may have occurred already.


Research and Markets Adds Intersect360’s New HPC User Site Census Report to Offering

As published in HPC Wire The goal in this analysis of networks is to examine the installations by network type and by supplier across the three locales (system, storage, and LAN) within the HPC user communities.


Dell And EMC Have More HPC Presence Than You (Or They) Think

As published in Next Platform The announced acquisition of enterprise storage giant EMC by server and PC maker Dell has fueled the pontifications of pundits across the tech industry, leaving almost no area unanalyzed. The $67 billion deal covers a panoply of technologies from the outmoded to the innovative, setting up the combined mega-firm to seek synergies in what to keep and what to let go.


Intersect360 report - HPC Budget Allocation Map: Industry Averages

As published in Primeur Magazine Intersect360 Research surveyed the HPC user community to complete its seventh Site Budget Allocation Map, a look at how HPC sites divide and spend their budgets. The report concludes that hardware represents the largest overall budget item, accounting for 45% of the total HPC budget in 2014. Staffing continues to be the second-largest overall expense, accounting for 22% of sites.Software as a share of the overall HPC budget accounts for 13%...


Intersect360 Research Releases Predictions and Systems Site Survey for HPC in 2015

Douglas Eadline,

As published in Cluster Monkey Intersect360 Research has releases their top six predictions for 2015 and a recent Systems Site Survey. The "top six" report mentions many-core accelerators, flash storage, 3D memory, integrated networking, and optical interconnects as technologies that will push HPC this year. The Site Census report provides a detailed examination of the server systems installed at a sample of High Performance Computing user sites. The full reports are open to members of HPC500...


2015 HPC Market Update

Addison Snell,

As published in Data Vortex   In this video from the 2015 HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference, Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research presents: HPC Market Update. The drive toward exascale computing, a renewed emphasis on data-centric processing, energy efficiency concerns, and the limitations of memory and I/O performance are all working to reshape High Performance Computing platforms. Many-core accelerators, flash storage, 3D memory, integrated networking, and optical interconnects are just some of the technologies propelling these future architectures....
