High-Performance Computing

Accelerating the Rate of Scientific Discovery

High performance computing (HPC) is one of the most essential tools fueling the advancement of science. By leveraging GPU-powered parallel processing across multiple compute nodes, it can run advanced, large-scale application programs efficiently, reliably, and quickly. This acceleration delivers a dramatic boost in throughput and cost savings, paving the way to scientific discovery.

The Intersection of HPC and AI

HPC and AI are converging to extend the reach of science and accelerate the pace of scientific innovation. With AI, HPC is tackling previously unsolvable problems by modeling the world using experimental and simulation data. It’s also delivering real-time results with models that used to take days or months to simulate.

See how scientists are using this powerful combination to advance a vast array of fields.
