The world’s largest and most complex computing requirements exist within governments, corporations, educational and research facilities. As the landscape of these sectors continue to evolve, so does their need for even more complex and advanced computational capabilities. High Performance Computing is the technological industries’ response to the inadequacy of conventional computing. Continued advancements in HPC will remain an integral part of the technological evolution of our world.
For over three decades, Aspen Systems has maintained it’s position as a key supplier and leading cluster computing integrator to governments, corporations and educational and research customers throughout the world including MIT, Merrill Lynch, NOAA, Lockheed Martin, Hope College, JP Morgan Chase, CDC, The George Washington University, Ball Aerospace and Raytheon.
HPC plays an integral part in the sustainability, growth and leadership movements of the government sector. For a governing body to be effective in driving innovation and sustaining global competitiveness it requires the implementation of all-encompassing HPC solutions. Without the integrity of sound and sophisticated computing solutions, a government’s information infrastructure is at risk of collapsing.
One of the most significant investments our global community makes in our collective future is that of higher education. High Performance Computing plays an integral role in the escalating success of such institutions. Failure to implement integrated information platforms can impede research capabilities, hinder management and administrative processes, reduce competitive positioning, hamper leadership, deny innovation and put an institution at risk of losing the ability to provide a world-class higher education experience.
Traditionally, the finance and banking industries have relied heavily on information technology to support the operational aspects of their business sector. High Performance Computing solutions supply the Finance and Banking industries the power to effectively manage risk factors, powerfully drive service standards, provide leading edge customer support, contributes to a competitive advantage and maintain a positive impact to bottom lines as never before.
The Life Sciences sector relies heavily on High Performance Computing. Extensive research, development, testing and marketing are only a sampling of the process that must be completed as quickly, accurately, and inexpensively as possible. Weakened IT infrastructures threaten the effectiveness of the multi-faceted needs of this sector. High Performance Computing provides the platform necessary to powerfully execute process from research and development responsibilities to operational procedures.
The ever-growing computational demands of weather and climate studies have been a driving factor in massive HPC technological advances. System requirements for sustained performance and more accurate representations of physical phenomena grew exponentially as the science evolved. Scalable operating systems, interconnect networks, and high-efficiency parallel programming HPC system architectures that reach well beyond simple processor speeds are required to handle the increasing scientific complexity of these studies.
High Performance Computing has, and continues to, modernize the US manufacturing sector. HPC is considered a key driver in upgrading our nation's manufacturing capabilities. With the plethora of products and services dependent upon the production of manufacturing technology, manufacturing is considered a foundational activity that acts as a catalyst to the success and effectiveness of many other business sectors.
