The contours of Arm-powered high performance computing are still being shaped, but the upcoming upgrade of its Isambard infrastructure by the UK’s Great Western 4 alliance suggests that architectural diversity will be a feature of Arm-based HPC going forward. Hyperion Research believes such diversity will be an important aspect to Arm adoption in the HPC market in the coming years.
Hyperion Research recently closed the books on the 2018 year for the high performance computing market in our market tracking database, the QView. 2018 was another high growth year, with the server market reaching $13.7 billion, and the total market (servers, storage, software and technical support services) totaling more than $27.6 billion. The market has continued to grow at a steady rate of around 6% for the past 5 years.

Major government buyers we interviewed consistently named Cray as one of the handful of global supercomputer makers capable of true innovation at the system architecture level. These vendors maintain their ability to stay at the forefront of the HPC market by continually reinventing themselves and their products. Cray's capture of the $600 million CORAL 2 contract to deliver the 1.5-exaflops Frontier supercomputer to ORNL in 2021 is the company's latest demonstration of its ability to mutate in response to the evolving HPC market environment.
