In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at a new projections from Hyperion Research that has the HPC+AI market growing to $44B, in 5 years.

The industry is hitting on all cylinders, benefiting from the Exascale race, AI coming to the enterprise, and it’s customary slow but always steady growth. The big news continues to be AI fundamentally bringing HPC closer to the mainstream of enterprise computing whether it is on-prem, in a co-location facility, or in a public cloud.

All of this is starting big changes in the industry. We see this in mergers and acquisitions (basically new companies), new technologies, new architectures, and new business models. An example of the latter is the loosening of chip licensing, with open source models starting to get attention. Unlike open source software, however, silicon needs a fab, and the necessary electronic design automation software applications don’t have equivalent open source alternatives.

After that, they do their Catch of the Week:

  • Henry: Following a supply chain security breach, Henry predicts that standards bodies like NIST and ISO will become even more active in this area with guidelines for hardware, software, and processes.
  • Shahin talks about Apple’s design chief, Jony Ive, leaving the company and shares some jokes on social media that fall flat for Dan and Henry, who probably claim it has nothing to do with them being such PC aficionados.
