Supercomputing at the Edge: Non-Traditional High Productivity Computing Segment Definitions April 2008

Addison Snell, Debra Goldfarb, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D., Erin Diaz,

Tabor Research believes that new technologies, methodologies, and applications are emerging outside of the traditional HPC markets that have the essential characteristics of high productivity computing. These requirements include: leading edge capabilities, incorporating, testing, and perfecting of new technologies and methodologies, and market creation and expansion. This HPC market segment is generating a “new edge” by leveraging major technological advances to enable application growth in non-traditional markets. This new area, which we cleverly call Edge HPC (or eHPC), leverages the experience and technologies...

Technology Prevalence in the HPC Market September 2007

Addison Snell, Debra Goldfarb, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D., Erin Diaz,

This Tabor Research report describes technology options available to users in the High Productivity computing market. For this report, Tabor Research reviewed specifications for 153 server products which are actively sold into the HPC market by 14 suppliers. We collected technical data at both the system level and the node level. We reviewed 177 nodes for the study. We segmented systems by architecture type, including clusters, blades, MPPs, and SMPs, and we compared the availability and prevalence of component technologies...

Site Budget Allocation Map August 2007

Addison Snell, Debra Goldfarb, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D., Erin Diaz,

Tabor Research surveyed the High Productivity Computing user community to complete its first Site Budget Allocation Map, a look at how HPC users divide and spend their HPC budgets. We surveyed users on their spending in seven top-level categories: hardware, software, facilities, staffing, services, utility computing, and other. Each category was further divided into constituent subcategories, resulting in 25 unique items included in the analysis. This report contains the key data, along with analysis, conclusions, and guidance. We analyzed the data to...
