Dell Technologies has shared its strategy to strengthen its High-Performance Computing or HPC as a service (HPCaaS) space with a focus on modelling and simulation, machine learning and model training.
The HPC technology allows the user to aggregate computational power of multiple servers by using advanced technologies such as parallel programming to solve complex problems, which are difficult and time consuming using standard compute devices.
The HPC market size is projected to reach $55,866.78 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 7.31% from 2021 to 2028. As consumption of data is increasing, computational models are becoming a reality and data complexity has started to take centre stage, resulting in the increase in demand for HPC in India.
Increased investments by the government in education and research to push through the reality of exascale deployments is driving India’s growth to emerge as a key research hub as captive centres for global organisations. Several organisations across research, healthcare, life sciences, finance, manufacturing, and AI are already adopting HPC to simulate and predict efficient outcomes.
HPCaaS takes HPC to another dimension where the technology is offered as a consumption model and can be offered through multiple modes, Private cloud, and Hybrid cloud or through exascalers as public cloud. As a result, the same workloads for scientific computing and simulations run on local HPC systems can be run on HPCaaS.
While major cloud providers are attempting to offer everything at once to potential cloud users, Dell Technologies’ approach to the HPC public cloud is radically different from the existing solutions, the company claimed, highlighting its advantages such as increasing agility, reducing complexity and growing affordability which it offers to its customers.
Dell Technologies is focused on offering tailor-made cloud solutions that fit the customers' needs much better than legacy clouds. The company has multiple customers across multiple domains leveraging HPC in their work stream and benefiting from this model and achieving the right outcomes.
Some of the brand’s global clients include Mastercard, University of Florida, and the energy company ENI, among others. In India currently, Dell Technologies is enabling a plethora of customers across multiple verticals such as Automobile engineering, Govt. research and education or an EDA application to benefit from the HPC services from Dell. The brand has also deployed multiple petaflops scale systems for its customers to help them build their IPs and create competitive difference against others.
“We see a significant interest in this area across multiple segments and we are extremely bullish in partnering with our customers in their growth strategy around HPC. Our endeavour is to democratize HPC as a technology, and enable even smaller organizations to avail the benefits of HPC to derive intelligent outcomes,” said Manish Gupta, Senior Director & General Manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies India.
“We strive towards developing and offering tailor-made cloud solutions that fit the exact requirements of our customers to help them achieve the right outcomes. With our HPCaaS solution, we are enabling customers who would have initially hesitated to adopt to benefit from these solutions,” added Gupta.
Additionally, Dell technologies has invested in building its own IP and built fruitful partnerships with technology vendors to drive the adoption of HPC and HPCaas in India.
