High-Performance Computing Is the Primary Driver in Change in Data Center Architecture

High-Performance Computing Is the Primary Driver in Change in Data Center Architecture

TABB Group Partner Bob Iati discusses high performance computing's impact on server growth in Tabb Group's Chart of the Month.

Iati says:

*Sell side institutions are striving to create a smaller footprint in their data centers.

*Nearly two thirds of all data centers are dedicated to HPC and that number is increasing rapidly.

*Forty five percent of institutions cite increased volumes or advanced trading as the main change agents for server infrastructure.

*Performance is the number one criterion for server replacement, as speed and complex routing strategies are growing even more critical.

High performance computing is the primary driver of change in data center architecture.
