This IDC study examines the growing adoption of HPC technologies by SMBs in economically important markets to address mission-critical problems. HPC has demonstrated its ability to elevate innovation and competitiveness in companies of all sizes. The rising use of commodity technologies has made HPC systems affordable for many SMBs, but inadequate understanding of HPC's potential benefits has prevented HPC use among SMBs from growing even faster than it has.
"Today, more and more SMBs, as well as tier 1 firms, are adopting HPC technology to tackle mission-critical problems more quickly and efficiently," said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for High Performance Computing. "Companies that could benefit from HPC use should investigate this game-changing technology or could lose ground to competitors that do this first."
