In this report, Technavio highlights the growing use of the cloud as one of the key emerging trends driving the global supercomputer market:
Growing use of the cloud
Supercomputing centers are increasingly using the cloud to manage workloads. At present, parallel applications that do not require very specific architecture are being run using the cloud. However, more sophisticated applications will likely be run on the cloud as time progresses. In keeping with this development, Cray struck a partnership with Microsoft. The partnership allows Cray access to Microsoft's Azure customer base, with the potential to provide better growth for the company. As of 2017, Cray is offering dedicated Cray XC and CS-Storm supercomputers inside the Azure platform, as a part of the partnership, allowing customers to run their HPC and AI applications alongside their other cloud workloads.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research, “The automotive, financial services, and life sciences sectors are expected to show an increased interest in using cloud services for supercomputers. Cray systems will be available for customer-specific provisioning in select Microsoft Azure data centers. Cray will contract directly with customers to provide support and maintenance. As supercomputer vendors look at alternatives to broaden their market reach, such collaborations are likely to increase in the market.”
