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. We 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.

This report provides the average budget distribution for the responding sites within each category and presents a view of the entire HPC budget distribution and IT product spending (excluding facilities and staffing).

Important statistical highlights from this study include:

- Hardware remains the largest category. The average HPC site spent 46% of its HPC budget on hardware this year. Servers lead spending in this category, followed by storage and networks.

- Staffing continued as the second-largest overall expense. System management and operations combined with maintenance personnel accounted for 46% of the staffing budget.

- Facilities expenditures represent on average 9.5% of a site's HPC budget. READ MORE >
