HPC Surveys/Polls

The HPC Market has experienced healthy growth over the last decade. Here are ClusterMonkey we are constantly asking questions about the market with our "small polls." We also offer summaries of the HPC market. You can also find links to surveys and our past polls here.

Intersect360 Research Releases Predictions and Systems Site Surveyfor HPC in 2015

Intersect360 Research has releases their top six predictions for 2015 and a recent Systems Site Survey. The "top six" report mentions many-core accelerators, flash storage, 3D memory, integrated networking, and optical interconnects as technologies that will push HPC this year. The Site Census report provides a detailed examination of the server systems installed at a sample of High Performance Computing user sites. The full reports are open to members of HPC500 and Intersect360 clients. The following is publicly released data from these reports.

HPC: Engineering on the Desktop

The editors of Desktop Engineering have posted the executive summary of a survey entitled "Desktop Engineering with IBM: High Performance Cluster Computing Survey."

Sponsored by IBM, a copy of survey the summary is available for download. Of interest are the "The Barriers to Cluster Adoption" on the last page. Many of these will ring true for the traditional HPC practitioner.

Intersect360: 2013 HPC Site Budget Allocation Map

From the "Look free market data" department

Intersect360 Research surveyed the High Performance Computing user community to complete its fifth Site Budget Allocation Map, a look at how HPC sites divide and spend their budgets. They surveyed users on their spending in seven top-level categories: hardware, software, facilities, staffing, services, cloud/utility computing, and other. Each category was further divided into constituent subcategories, resulting in 25 unique items included in the analysis.

Intersect360: Trends in HPC Architecture, Configurations

More cores means more memory!

Intersect360 Research has released some new findings identifying Trends in HPC Architecture and Configurations. From the report, IBM again took the top spot in High Performance Computing (HPC) system vendors. The survey included end users worldwide, where IBM, Dell, HP, SGI, and Cray collectively captured 56% of the system vendors mentioned.

The report, part of Intersect360 Research's HPC Market Advisory service, provides a detailed examination of the computational systems installed at a broad sample of HPC user sites, including analysis of component technologies such as processors and accelerators. Through its partnership with Tabor Communications, Intersect360 Research surveyed the worldwide readership of HPCwire. Future years‘ Site Census surveys will leverage the newly created HPC500 group.
