Research and Markets: Global High-performance Computing Server Market 2012-2016

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nh83c8/global) has announced the addition of the "Global High-performance Computing Server Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global High-performance Computing Server market to grow at a CAGR of 6.82 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in big data. The Global High-performance Computing Server market has also been witnessing the high growth of the Global HPC Storage market. However, the increase in the complexities in advanced HPC clusters could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM Corp.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Altair Inc., Appro Inc., Cray Inc., Fujitsu Ltd., Hitachi Ltd., NEC Corp. and Silicon Graphics International Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: ''The demand among enterprises for better performance from existing networking hardware is increasing. They are also demanding fewer physical server deployments with increased application performance. This is due to the budget constraints in IT spending. Presently, the US is the high-performance computing (HPC) software leader in the world, but as the HPC hardware is becoming more commoditized, other countries are getting competitive. Big data is playing a critical role and it requires high computing power. For computing, x86 processors are the most popular HPC processors used in the industry, and they have a share of more than 75 percent in the installed HPC central processing unit (CPU) processors.''

According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the increase in big data. In the current business environment, every organization, irrespective of its size, stores a considerably large amount of data. Therefore, many vendors are developing their solutions in accordance with the requirements of big data.

Further, the report reveals that one of the main challenges is the increase in the complexities in advanced HPC clusters.
