PORTLAND, OREGON – January 17, 2013 – insideHPC LLC, parent company of the industry leading High Performance Computing (HPC) news site, insideHPC.com, along with its sister publications inside-Bigdata, inside-Cloud and inside-Startups, today announced a year of record growth for 2012.
Combined, the four inside* publications achieved 35% growth year-over-year in 2012. With readership continuing to rise each month, company advertising revenue has more than doubled since being acquired by HPC industry veteran Rich Brueckner in 2010.
I am both thrilled and humbled that insideHPC has seen such tremendous growth both in terms of readers and advertisers,” said Rich Brueckner, president of insideHPC LLC. “We continually survey our readers to ensure we are providing content and a format that meets the needs of the community. Our short format approach and uncluttered look has been applauded along with our wide use of rich media, and I have no doubt is contributing to our growth and success.”
The other publications owned and managed by Brueckner have achieved similar impressive results for 2012. Inside-Bigdata targets readers of commercial computing environments and enterprise computing where data intensive challenges are paramount. Inside-Cloud formed many partnerships soon after being launched and is an important media channel for many organizations in Cloud computing. And the company’s youngest publication, inside-Startups, has attracted the attention of companies throughout the country as they look to get exposure for their entrepreneurial ventures.
Recently, Brueckner was named by Forbes magazine as one of the Top 20 Big Data Influencers. As the industry continues to embrace data-intensive computing and the use of business analytics, Brueckner anticipates tremendous growth for the inside-BigData publication in 2013 and beyond.
As both a data scientist and an investor closely watching emerging trends in advanced computing, I have come to rely on the inside* publications – from inside-startups to insideHPC – as key channels for maintaining an insider’s perspective on market dynamics and companies to watch,” said Thomas Thurston, Partner, Ironstone Group and CEO, Growth Science.
“The HPC market continues to expand,” said Brueckner. “A number of our sponsors including Mellanox and ScaleMP announced record growth in 2012, and we’d like to think we helped make that possible. In 2013, the storage vendors we work with are especially bullish on how the Big Data trend will help them grow as well.
