Although technical servers and their associated compute and memory elements receive much of HPC infrastructure focus and attention, storage and interconnects are becoming increasingly prominent elements within the HPC ecosystem. This is reflected in the 2021 iteration of Hyperion Research’s annual HPC Multi-Client Study: Trends and Forecasts in HPC Storage and Interconnects report. Key findings from the report are summarized in this document.
Flash-based Storage Approaching Being the Medium of Choice for HPC Storage
Mark Nossokoff, Bob Sorensen
While SSDs were initially integrated almost exclusively into the largest and highest performing HPC systems, widespread HPC adoption of flash-based storage is now occurring due to the perfect storm evolution and intersection of requirements, technologies and economics.

Buyers’ Expected Short-Term Spending Changes for HPC Servers, Public Clouds, and Desktops
Melissa Riddle, Alex Norton, and Earl Joseph
Covid-19 has impacted the worldwide HPC ecosystem in a variety of manners, leading to unpredictable changes in spending trends on systems, production, and installation of those systems, as well as changes in the sources of users' compute resources. Hyperion Research conducts surveys throughout the year to ask buyers for their expected short-term and long-term HPC spending changes in order to keep a tab on the ebbs and flows of the market. This Special Analysis explores changes in short-term budgets and expected spending. Due to the ever-changing situation of the world, these surveys have become critical in understanding, and predicting, the short-term spending trends of HPC buyers.
