2022 HPC End Users Perspectives on Trends and Forecast in HPC Storage and Interconnects – Key Findings
Authors: Mark Nossokoff, Jaclyn Ludema and Earl Joseph
Publication Date: February 2023
Length: 4 pages
Key findings from a recent Hyperion Research study indicate that HPC storage solutions, and associated storage and system interconnects, continue to be critical for HPC infrastructure to deliver optimal capabilities and provide the fastest time to results for the systems’ users. Data-intensive workloads driven by new AI/ML/DL workloads, increasing scale of traditional HPC modelling and simulation, emerging edge computing, and emerging composable systems are placing greater demands and requirements on HPC storage systems. 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: Trends and Forecasts in HPC Storage and Interconnects. Key findings from the report are summarized in this document.
European Parliament Endorses EuroHPC Exascale Initiative
Steve Conway, Bob Sorensen, Alex Norton, and Earl Joseph
This report looks at the European approach to developing both exascale computers and an indigenous, self-sufficient HPC supply chain in Europe. In recent years the EU and its Member States, along with countries including China, Japan, and the United States, have increasingly recognized the strategic importance of investing more heavily in supercomputing to accelerate scientific and industrial innovation.

A Growing and Changing HPC Applications Landscape
Melissa Riddle, Mark Nossokoff
The application software landscape is quickly evolving along with HPC workloads. Independent software vendor (ISV) applications, as opposed to open-source or home-grown, have traditionally been considered the gold standard as the source for many HPC applications and were frequently cited as HPC users' top applications. While ISV revenues continue to rise, open-source application use is growing as well. Although HPC users can be reluctant to change the applications used at their site, developments such as the onset of AI, new types of hardware, and the cloud have spurred many users to explore new applications they may not have considered otherwise. Overall, the HPC application software landscape is rapidly developing in tandem with new HPC infrastructure and use cases.
