About Supercomputers

A supercomputer is defined as a system that is designed to solve problems or issues that require an extraordinary number of computations across fields such as engineering, science, and business. It is a computing device that is designed for speed rather than for cost-efficiency.

The TOP500 List is the benchmark that is attributed to the best and the most high-performing systems in the world and commonly defines market dynamics. A study carried out by industry experts indicate that a number of companies already using supercomputers and unwilling to give up the use of the systems was between the range of 95%-100%. Some of the applications of supercomputers include drug discovery and testing, data analytics in financial services, vehicle crash collision testing, scientific research in physics and chemistry, and weather forecasting.

The analysts forecast the global supercomputer market to grow at a CAGR of 7.00% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Supercomputer Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global supercomputer market: Bull Atos, Cray, Dell, FUJITSU, HPE, IBM, Lenovo, NEC, Silicon Graphics International and Sugon Information Industry

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Since the advent of supercomputing, the major factor that has been the focus of industry attention was the number of FLOPS. Floating point operations were the true metric, and the machines delivering them in the largest quantities were considered true supercomputers. The concept of energy-efficient supercomputing was introduced in the 2001 supercomputing conference, where a 24-processor bare machine employing low-powered Transmeta processors was demonstrated. In the following years, not much attention was paid to energy efficiency, with the fastest systems doubling their performance and energy consumption on a yearly basis. Overall, energy efficiency was increasing, but at much slower rate in comparison to performance. An instance of the change in energy efficiency can be seen from the first terascale supercomputer, which consumed kilowatts to operate in 1997, to the first petaflop system in 2008, which consumed 2.4 megawatts only. However, the petaflop supercomputer used highly efficient PowerXCell-8i coprocessor for its FLOPS, the more conventional ones being much less efficient. During this period, the performance increased more than a thousand-fold, but energy efficiency improved by less than half that amount.”

According to the report, the amount of data that governments across the global must handle range from ongoing and unmet security needs to cryptanalysis and even data mining for rapid and precise analysis of data from a number of disparate sources. There are numerous computational challenges associated with the SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) mission of NSA. In this program, the NSA needs to intercept as well as analyze the communication signals of foreign adversaries, most of which are protected using encodings and other countermeasures. The mission targets capabilities, intentions, and activities of foreign countries such as Russia and China, thus playing an important role in offering counterintelligence for protection against espionage, sabotage, and assassinations conducted on behalf of foreign powers, organizations, and international terrorist groups.

Further, the report states that even though supercomputers themselves can detect flaws in software, they are still faced with IT security risks such as system breaches and hacking. A majority of the supercomputers have confidential and proprietary information due to which they employ security measures designed to protect this information. However, the security measures employed are not sufficient to stop unauthorized access.

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.
