HPC, climbing up the Exascale - Bull Systems | Big Data Spain

There is a continued need for higher compute performance: scientific grand challenges, engineering, geophysics, bioinformatics, etc. However, energy is increasingly becoming one of the most expensive resources and the dominant cost item for running a large computing facility. In fact the total energy cost of a few years of operation can almost equal the cost of the hardware infrastructure. Energy efficiency is already a primary concern for the design of any computer system and it is unanimously recognized that Big Data systems will be strongly constrained by power.

  • - HPC is a leading innovator of energy efficiency and thus all other IT markets will follow
  • - HPC is leveraging Big Data technologies in some customer sites
  • - HPC is a leading innovator in the use of new technologies such as ARM processors to crank up power and lower energy use
