Today, HPC is becoming the global engine of our society. A short decade ago, HPC consisted of a set of highly customized technologies, only usable by technology experts and rocket scientists, and deployed in a small number of government labs and research facilities to address scientific discovery and defense requirements. Now, HPC has permeated the very fabric of our lives, throughout the enterprise, in a broad range of consumer applications, and in most internet-enabled environments globally.

With all of this potential to take advantage of compute and create results from a wide variety of data, the possibilities are endless. However, there is still a great need for enabling technologies to help turn dreams into reality. Data intensive Enterprise and HPC organizations are always in need of new approaches for data compute, storage and management that allows them to keep pace with the rapid acceleration of processor power and both machine and sensor generated data. Today’s organizations need new architectural designs that can support the full power of advanced individual component technologies with efficiency and integration at scale.

This is where over 17 years of DDN market leadership steps in
