HPC Predictions for 2016: Charting the Future

Posted on December 31, 2015

HPC predictionsDuring Supercomputing last month in Austin, the IDC shared happy news of a growing HPC market in 2016.

“IDC forecasts that the global HPDA ecosystem market will continue growing robustly to reach about $4.9 billion in 2019,” said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for HPC and HPDA. “Data-intensive simulation will expand rapidly, driven by powerful new scientific instruments, sensor networks, and brawnier HPC systems. Advanced analytics at existing HPC sites and a growing contingent of new commercial HPC adopters will help power this convergence market.”

Now, as we usher in the new year, predictions about HPC in 2016 are coming in from all corners of the industry. For our part, we see a growing demand for cloud HPC computing that will continue in 2016. The IDC reports that 25.5% of respondents said they have used cloud computing for HPC workloads. That is a 13.6% increase from 2011.
