Market Sector ProfileR-HPC resources are used in a variety of market verticals including commercial, academic and government research. These entities use R-HPC resources in research categories such as:
Bio-Tech/Ag Science companies use HPC resources to help analyze and manage large amounts of molecular, plant, and farm management data. This results in quicker product development decisions as compared to traditional means of experimenting and testing.
Electronic Design Automation (EDA) companies rely on HPC for the design of silicon, printed circuit boards and other electrical components that are used in the automotive, aerospace and telecommunications markets.
Entertainment companies such as DreamWorks Animation have benefited from the use of HPC in their blockbuster hit movies. Every detail including blades of grass, leaves, hair, fur, shadows, light source and clothing texture requires tens of millions of CPU hours to create and model.
Financial Service companies maintain diverse real-time market data to conduct complex financial modeling, research analysis and risk management scenarios. The enormous computational resources and custom memory aggregation required to process this type of high-volume data requires a solution oriented HPC environment.
Health Care companies are utilizing HPC for image processing, developing cures for cancer, brain research and drug simulations. HPC enables academic researchers and hospital clinicians to run applications to correlate outcomes and predict how patients might react to a particular treatment.
Insurance companies are utilizing HPC in the area of Actuarial computation and analysis. As policy valuation systems grow to include functionality that dramatically increases compute requirements, Actuarial will join Hedging and Capital Modeling as a consumer of massive compute cycles increasing the demand for HPC computing resources.
Motorsports is all about technology and competitive advantage. Race teams utilize HPC spanning thousands of cores to simulate and optimize aerodynamics and other engineering challenges. Pushing technology to the limits in racing is the norm and high performance computing makes it all possible.
Oil & Gas companies use HPC for everything from timely modeling and simulation of large-scale physical systems, to processing, analysis, interpretation and visualization of huge seismic data volumes.
Wind Energy & Weather Forecasting companies use of HPC plays an important role in weather modeling for forecast predictions and determining optimum wind farm locations on a global scale. Wind simulation and turbine design, in regards to product development, is engineered with the latest software and computing platforms.
