Computers are the engines that drive the discoveries that truly impact all of our lives. The massive compute power they provide allows leading research institutions in government, academia, and industry to run the simulations and analytics that are behind the most amazing advances in science and technology.
Today, super computers are fundamentally changing the way we gather, quantify and process information. The speed of technological development allows us to conduct research faster than ever before – and make life-saving decisions. Predicting earthquakes – even if just a few seconds – can be absolutely critical. Also, consider this – the amount of data we’re working with has increased dramatically. The sheer number of data sets currently traversing the modern data center is enough to make anyone’s head spin. Governments and massive organizations are investing billions of dollars into high performance computing.
