Propelled by a vision of HPC-cloud and HPC-enterprise convergence, Cray’s Shasta architecture will underpin America’s first three exascale supercomputers, including the just announced 1.5-exaflops El Capitan system headed for DOE NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2022.
Worldwide factory revenue for the high-performance computing (HPC) technical server market jumped for the full-year 2018 by 15.6% over the exceptionally strong 2017 calendar year period to $13.7 billion. The 2018 result was 6.2% higher than Hyperion Research's forecast $12.9 billion figure for the year.
April 2019 | Quick Take
This Quick Take looks at the growing availability of commercial cloud-based quantum computing (QC), supported through either direct access to true QC systems or QC simulators based on traditional digital hardware. In addition to QC hardware, most cloud-based QC providers are also rolling out their own software development environments to help existing and new QC software developers more effectively explore QC programming. The choice of options for potential QC users is growing, and each of the QC providers offers a distinct take on QC architecture and programming.
