Press Coverage


High Performance Computing (HPC) is a domain that encompasses the use of super computers and parallel processing for solving complex computational problems efficiently, reliably and quickly. HPC systems have the ability to deliver sustained performance through the concurrent use of computing resources. Applications typically require parallelizable task identification and parallelization level, i.e., task level or data level parallelism. HPC has applications in diverse fields like healthcare/personalized medicine, modeling and simulation, Security, Fintech and Engineering, Predictive Analytics, Affective Computing, Computer networks, Internet of Things etc.
