HPC integrators can help scientists and HPC research centres through the provisioning and management of HPC clusters. As the number of applications and potential user groups for HPC continues to expand supporting domain expert scientists use and access of HPC resources is increasingly important.Article is taken from Supporting Science with HPC from Scientific-Computing
While just ten years ago a cluster would have been used by just a few departments at a University, now there is a huge pool of potential users from non-traditional HPC applications. This also includes Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) as well as big data or applying advanced analytics to data sets from research areas that would previously not be interested in the use of HPC systems.
This culminates in a growing need to support and facilitate the use of HPC resources in academia or research and development. These organisations can either choose to employ the staff to support this infrastructure or try to outsource some or all of these processes to companies experienced in the management and support of HPC systems.
