In this video from SC16, Bill Mannel from Hewlett Packard Enterprise describes how the company is gaining momentum in the HPC space as the leading vendor on the TOP500. With the recent acquisition of SGI, HPE is moving forward with broader range of solutions for high performance computing.
“SGI’s highly complementary portfolio, including its in-memory high-performance data analytics technology and leading high-performance computing solutions will extend and strengthen HPE’s current leadership position in the growing mission critical and high-performance computing segments of the server market. The combined HPE and SGI portfolio, including a comprehensive services capability, will support private and public sector customers seeking larger high-performance computing installations, including U.S. federal agencies as well as enterprises looking to leverage high-performance computing for business insights and a competitive edge.”
High-performance computing is already an $11 billion segment, and it is expected to grow at an estimated 6-8% CAGR over the next five years. The combined HPE and SGI portfolio will accelerate the development of new solutions in fields such as weather mapping, genomics research, life sciences, and cybersecurity for both public and private organizations.
