HPC Site Budget Allocation Map: Industry Averages November 2008

Addison Snell, Laura Segervall, Debra Goldfarb, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

Tabor Research surveyed the High Productivity Computing user community to complete its second Site Budget Allocation Map, a look at how HPC sites divide and spend their 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 (excluding “Other” categories). This report contains the key data, along with analysis, conclusions, and guidance. This initial report...

HPC User Site Census: Systems August 2008

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 Census Report, a detailed examination of the server systems found at a sample of HPC user sites. We surveyed users on their systems’ suppliers, architectures, node counts, operating systems, interconnects, memory usage, processor types, and storage. We additionally surveyed users on their server storage systems, networks, middleware and software, which will be covered in future reports to be released throughout the year. We analyzed the data to recognize...
