HPC QView: 1Q16 Snapshot of the Major Players and Trends

This IDC Insight examines some of the major takeaways from the most recent Worldwide High-Performance Technical Server QView. Worldwide quarterly HPC server revenue increased by about 3% from 1Q15 to 1Q16, with 1Q16 revenue reaching $2.57 billion, and the most aggressive growth was realized by some of the smaller HPC vendors: SGI, Sugon, and Cray showed the best 1Q15–1Q16 growth in the sector at 62%, 28%, and 22%, respectively. Meanwhile, HPE, the largest supplier to the HPC sector, and Dell, at number 2, saw gains of 1.2% and 6.0%, respectively. Lenovo showed almost no change in revenue. IDC believes that there are a number of compelling technology issues that could materially change the calculus of the sector that include new processors, new interconnects, and the rising impact of both open and virtualization software.
