Global Supercomputer Market 2018-2022
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Supercomputer Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global supercomputer market: HPE, Dell , Lenovo, Cray
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing use of cloud Supercomputing centers are increasingly using the cloud to manage workloads. At present, parallel applications that do not require very specific architecture are being run using the cloud. However, more sophisticated applications will likely be run on the cloud as time progresses. Keeping in line with this development, Cray struck a partnership with Microsoft. The partnership allows Cray access to Microsoft's Azure customer base, with the potential to provide better growth for the company. As of 2017, Cray is offering dedicated Cray XC and CS-Storm supercomputers inside the Azure platform, as a part of the partnership, allowing customers to run their HPC and AI applications alongside their other cloud workloads.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Commercial customers increasingly adopting supercomputing systems. The supercomputer market is driven by increasing technological changes worldwide. In this complex and challenging environment, business houses must keep pace with technological changes and look to gain a competitive advantage. The race to assemble larger and faster systems has increased with supercomputer prowess being closely tied to economic competitiveness.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High ownership cost and large power consumption increases total cost. The ownership and maintenance of a supercomputer cost a substantial amount (in the range of millions). The overall cost includes installation, power consumption (megawatts of power), and maintenance costs. The cost of designing, assembling, and installing a supercomputer can range anywhere between $100 million and $300 million.
