Recent study results indicate that a reasonable percentage of respondents’ overall annual HPC budget goes toward HPC-related third-party professional services. Overall, about half of all respondents spend somewhere between 10% and 50% of their overall HPC budgets on HPC-related professional services.
- Industry was much more committed to professional services than the other major sectors, with 27% of industry survey respondents reporting commitment of 10% to less than 20% of their budgets to HPC-related professional services and about one-quarter of industry sites committing between 20% and 30%.
- More than one-third of government respondents report spending between 10% to less than 20% for HPC professional services.
- The academia sector was the least dependent on professional services, with 40% reporting less than 5% of their annual budgets going to HPC-related professional services.
Cloud Resources are Employed at Nearly Half of HPC Sites and are Expected to Gain Additional Popularity

A Look at the EU’s Four Pillar Strategy for Leadership in HPC
Mark Nossokoff, Steve Conway, Earl Joseph
High performance computers (HPCs) are recognized globally as fundamental tools for conducting R&D, innovation and advancing the economic competitiveness of nations. More countries than ever are increasing their spending on HPC infrastructure and critical associated areas such as AI, cloud, quantum computing, applications development and optimization, and workforce development and retention. The European Commission (EC), through the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU), Digital Europe Programme (DEP), and Horizon 2020/Europe funding programs, fully recognized this criticality for the European Union (EU) to fortify its global HPC leadership position. Further refining and extending its initial long-term mission, the JU has instituted a Four Pillar Strategy focusing on Infrastructure, Technologies, Applications, and Take-Up and Skill Sets, to define an approach to help realize its HPC ambitions. Continued execution of this strategy should well-position the EU to achieve its goals of deploying an integrated world-class supercomputing and data infrastructure.
