The 4 Essentials of Hosting HPC in a Data Centre

High-Performance Computing (HPC) allows companies to reach new levels of data analysis, run AI and unlock a wide range of other computing advancements. However, you can only fully utilise HPC if you host it in an environment capable of meeting its advanced requirements.

Our guide takes you through:

  • The 4 essentials for hosting HPC
  • Why they're important
  • How to provide your HPC with these essentials

HPC is capable of powerful computing thanks to densely clustered cores of computer hardware all working perfectly in sync with other another.
This high density means specialist infrastructure is needed to host HPC, since specific environmental requirements have to be met to ensure your HPC system runs optimally.

The 4 essentials of hosting HPC are:

  • Power
  • Cooling
  • Expansion
  • Support
