THE CONFLUENCE OF SIMULATION AND AI CHANGES EVERYTHING

This confluence put new demands on HPC storage. And it is happening right now. A recent study of the independent analyst firm Intersect360 found out that the majority (61%) of the HPC users today already are running machine learning programs . Hyperion Research forecasts that- current course and speed - HPC storage spending in public sector organizations and enterprises will grow 40% faster than spending for HPC compute for the next three years.
