Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “HPC as a Service is fast gaining in popularity in the Global HPC market since it offers high performance on demand and a scalable HPC computing environment. The computing resources provided by the service providers can vary in power, technology, and latency. HPCaaS helps optimize the environment for HPC; with the help of HPCaaS, enterprises can solve the problem of surge capacity for time-critical analysis by having resources available as and when needed. HPCaaS has a centralized system so that enterprises can minimize the impact of remote collaboration issues. HPCaaS is designed to leverage the financial benefits of a managed solution, cloud, while providing an infrastructure focused around HPC. This gives enterprises the capability to meet an organization's research and engineering compute requirements without incurring the capital and operational costs associated with setting up an in-house HPC cluster.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increasing need to maintain the huge amounts of data produced. The need to maintain and analyze the data that is generated from various sources is fueling the demand for HPC solutions among enterprises. HPC solutions help organizations to store the data, speed up the calculations, and take strategic decisions based on the outcomes.
Further, the report states that the high implementation cost of HPC resources is one of the major challenges confronting this market. The deployment of HPC solutions is an expensive process, which needs a detailed and usually costly process of defining requirements. This increases the criticality of the process because, once deployed, further costs may be incurred if any changes have to be made.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
