WHAT IS HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING?

If you are new to the subject, you might ask yourself ‘What is high performance computing (HPC) and what can it do for my research group or company’?

 

Martijn Brizee, founder and CEO of Linvision, explains the essentials of HPC:

“High Performance Computing is the domain of (highly) complex calculations and simulations. An HPC system is a collection of processors, memory, storage and software, which work together as one coherent system to solve even the most complex and challenging calculations.

 

HPC systems, also known as supercomputers, operate on the boundary of technical feasibility. Users of HPC systems often want access to the latest technology in order to achieve competitive advantages on other research groups or companies.”

 

There is a legion of benefits to gain with HPC, here you find a few of them.
