HPC Total Market Forecast for 2011 through 2015: Economic Sectors and Vertical Markets June 2011

Addison Snell, Laura Segervall, Sue Gouws Korn, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

  This Intersect360 Research report presents our 2010 total market model and five-year forecast for the overall High Performance Computing (HPC) market along three dimensions: super-segments (High Performance Technical Computing / HPTC and High Performance Business Computing / HPBC), economic sector (government, academia, and industry) and vertical market (e.g., manufacturing, financial services). The forecast horizon is from 2011 through 2015, with compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) using 2010 as a base. HPC market recovery occurred sooner than expected,...

Cloud Computing in HPC: Usage and Types June 2011

Addison Snell, Laura Segervall, Sue Gouws Korn, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

  EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Intersect360 Research conducted a survey of High Performance Computing (HPC) users regarding their adoption of cloud computing resources. This study sought to understand the adoption of cloud computing for HPC applications, as well as the barriers, drivers, and rationales for using or evaluating cloud resources. The goal of this study is to help the HPC vendor community understand the size of the cloud opportunity in HPC and guide them in the development of products and services...

High Performance Business Computing in Financial Institutions February 2011

Sue Gouws Korn,

Financial services is the second-largest commercial High Performance Computing (HPC) vertical market, second only to manufacturing. It is also one of the fastest growing. As a result, it is a critical part of our High Performance Business Computing (HPBC or Business HPC) methodology. Within financial services, high-frequency trading is the most well-known application, but there are several other areas where HPC is in use. These qualify as HPC because they are compute-intensive, exhibit heavy communication requirements,...
