High Performance Computing

High-Performance Computing (HPC) refers to technology that is capable of storing, processing and analysing massive amounts of data in mere milliseconds. A HPC infrastructure is a large amount of clustered storage and computing servers, which are interconnected using extremely fast and efficient networking.

NEC has a long history in HPC and have adapted to the demands of the market. With the in-house knowledge and commitment to HPC, NEC continues to innovate. With trends moving towards new architectures, NEC’s experience with vector computers provides customers with a balanced guidance on how to evaluate new architectures with vectorization in its core.

Who we work with

With the proprietary vector systems, a wealth of x86-based products including accelerators, and storage appliances, NEC provides complete solutions for all kinds of requirements. In addition, NEC has the necessary skills to provide HPC services, from simple installation and customisation to running the most complex heterogeneous systems in mission-critical operational environments, including code development and tuning consultancy by experienced analysts.

NEC works with different HPC network technology partners, building large clusters both with InfiniBand and Omni-Path technologies. Our partnerships allow us to work across a number of different industries and sectors. Here are just some of the areas in which we are working with clients on HPC projects:

Key features and benefits of NEC’s High Performance Computing

NEC not only provides hardware. We take pride in providing optimal solutions in HPC, based on the advanced skills of our experts.

Our system integration and support team right here in New Zealand is capable of operating the most complex environments for mission-critical production like weather forecasting. Such systems do not just consist of a supercomputer, but of a collection of huge complex networks, of databases with enormous capacity, of a large number of servers managing the whole workflow, and only ultimately of the number crunchers themselves.

Here are just some of the benefits of High Performance Computers.

Streamline processes
Analyse data quicker. These High Performance Computer systems provide your team with figures they can use to identify gaps and deliver results.
Deliver faster results
Faster processing abilities, businesses are able to deliver faster results and in turn save more money.
Increased processing speed
Increased processing speed getting smaller but infinitely more powerful.

HPC is changing the world we live in

HPC is a way to tackle complex mathematical, scientific or engineering problems. Alongside theory and experiment, computer-supported simulations of natural or technical processes have established themselves as a third pillar in the field of science and research. It is nowadays inconceivable that an aircraft manufacturer or a Formula One racing team would operate without using simulation software. Scientific calculations, such as in the field of astrophysics, medicine, pharmaceuticals or life sciences, depend on supercomputing to a very large extent.

Why NEC?

There are many reasons why our customers turn to NEC for High Performance Computing systems. We have a long history in HPC. Starting from the early 1980s, NEC has developed a product line of vector computers. With the rise of Linux based clusters, NEC has provided complex solutions since the 1990s. We will continue to innovate in this field with new solutions, in hardware, software and concepts. Now NEC can announce the next major milestone of its supercomputing strategy, the SX-Aurora TSUBASA.

With several HPC research and development teams and research labs all over the world, NEC evaluates the newest trends in HPC. Our mission is to be at the forefront of HPC developments in all areas. NEC monitors the latest trends in processor, network and storage technologies and collaborates with universities and other research centres to improve HPC solutions. All of this helps to keep NEC at the forefront of innovations in HPC.
