What is HPC?
High-performance computing (HPC) enables users to solve complex, computationally demanding business, engineering and scientific problems through computer modeling, simulation and analysis. The applications used in HPC require high bandwidth, enhanced networking and robust compute capabilities.
How does HPC Work?
An HPC system can be a single supercomputer or a distributed cluster of GPU-intensive servers in a cloud platform. The terms “HPC” and “supercomputing” are frequently used interchangeably, but the two differ significantly in performance levels. A supercomputer is computationally much faster than an HPC system.
