As a small-to-medium business, you may be thinking “My company is not in the business of building rockets or designing airplanes or cars, so why should I spend on High Performance Computing (HPC) resources?”
What can HPC do for my business?
In order to find out about the role that HPC can play in your business, it is important first to answer the following key question: “Could my business grow if I had access to more computing power, say 20 to 100 times what I have right now?”
A simple yet very powerful question
On the surface, although it seems like a simple question, the more you think about it, it can be a deceptively powerful one. The answer is definitely not more emails and Word documents, which today’s cheap personal computers are already capable of handling.
I encourage you to spend some time thinking seriously about the question before you give up on the possibility of growing your business by upgrading your ability to compute. There are a ton of use cases for HPC in solving problems for a broad array of SMB businesses.
For example, a business that runs a chain of boutique stores could use trend analysis software running on a small cluster to generate useful product insights from the past several years of sales data.
This analysis can generate useful information about which products have sold when, and will help identify surprising trends that are regular and predictable. You can then use this information to get the right merchandise into the store at the right time to improve sales.
The same arguments could apply to small manufacturing and component design firms that can now use HPC to power applications that help them to test and validate product designs that are in R&D – without having to build costly physical prototypes.
What about financial analysis? Your firm naturally wants to give your clients sound investment advice, but what if you do not have the computing power to crunch more than a few years’ worth of market data? HPC is here to solve this problem.
Similarly, engineering firms can use HPC systems to significantly reduce the time required to run complex simulations, compared to running the same on workstations.
All these HPC use cases can have a direct impact on the bottom-line of your business.
