Key findings from a recent Hyperion Research study revealed that HPC users see continued dominance of the x86 processor in HPC, led by Intel but with a growing interest in AMD, the nearly universal adoption of coprocessor or accelerators in HPC servers, albeit at low overall systems counts, and modest expectations for HPC budgets growth for the bulk of the sector. Insights into the critical factors driving these and other trends are detailed in the 2022 iteration of Hyperion Research’s annual MCS end users’ study, 2022 HPC Multi-Client Study: Processors, Coprocessors/Accelerators, and HPC Budgets. Key findings from the report are summarized in this document.
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.

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.
