This third report in our Site Census series provides an examination of the storage characteristics and capacity found at a sample of HPC user sites. We surveyed a broad range of users about their current computer system installations, storage systems, networks, middleware, and software supporting these computer installations. The initial two reports, HPC User Site Census: Systems, and HPC User Site Census: Processors focused on server suppliers, server node characteristics, and processors-related trends.1 Our goal in this analysis of storage systems...
The second Site Census Report in our series is an examination of the processors found at a sample of HPC user sites. We surveyed a broad range of users about their systems’ suppliers, architectures, node counts, operating systems, interconnects, memory usage, processor types, and storage. The initial report, HPC User Site Census: Systems focused on server suppliers and server node characteristics.1 Our goal in its analysis was to discover processor-related trends within the HPC user communities and explore how the data varies...
Supercomputing at the Edge: Non-Traditional High Productivity Computing Segment Definitions April 2008, , , ,
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...
2007 Market Review March-2008"> This Tabor Research report presents our final 2006 and 2007 server revenue estimates for the traditional High Productivity Computing (tHPC) market. Tabor Research estimates that the Traditional HPC server market was approximately $7.1 billion in 2006 and grew to $7.9 billion in 2007. The year over year growth in revenue from 2006 to 2007 was 11.5%. Key findings from the study include: The Supercomputer segment represents a respectable 16.7% of the HPC market. The remaining three segments are very...
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...
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...
