Computing technology is the backbone of modern businesses. Modern high-performance computing (HPC) utilizes supercomputers and parallel processing techniques to quickly complete time-consuming tasks or multiple tasks simultaneously.

As innovation is rapid, technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) can broaden the capabilities of HPC and deliver high-performing processing power to various sectors. Moreover, data being hugely piling up has placed AI at the center of technological disruption. The vast amounts of data produced every day are of little use without data analytics and AI. This has also renewed the interest in HPC to a large extent due to the need to compute large amounts of data for AI workloads.

On a closer look, the interconnection between AI and HPC is symbiotic as HPC powers AI workloads. However, AI can identify improvements in HPC data centers. In a way, it can optimize heating and cooling systems, reducing electricity costs and improving efficiency.

HPC was born in on-premise data centers but during the second half of the 2010s, cloud computing began to change HPC. Today, the role of high-performance computing is inevitable in most businesses across the globe in one way or the other.

To help businesses find the right HPC solution provider and to help them achieve better business results, we’ve developed this special edition of Top 20 HPC Solution Providers 2022. Our team of researchers, editors, and industry experts have listed the companies here that are unique in their offerings and outstanding in their services.
