HPC or high-performance computing is at the very core of IT innovation today. What HPC means is having the capacity of supercomputers to process large datasets, using ultra-high-speed. This process allows powerful computer systems to action a vast number of commands within a single second. If we try to put this into a mathematical perspective, supercomputers can perform quadrillions of calculations per second, compared to several billion by standard consumer laptops.
Architecture behind HPC
One of the most popular high-performance computing solutions on the marketplace is undoubtedly the supercomputer. This machine is built to operate by the model of parallel processing. What this means in simple language is having a lot of processors linked to one another in order to achieve a much higher operating capacity. HPC usually has the architecture of a big server cluster, made up of individual server machines. This is pretty much the same model used by cloud providers to deploy applications from the cloud to the desktop endpoint of users accessing DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service). When linking to the cloud, companies that use managed IT services store their data on the provider’s cloud servers, which operate by HPC. Their company data is retrieved upon request from each end-user by traveling back and forth from the server architecture to the physical devices, connected to the cloud.
HPC allows peak performance
we-IT is a managed service provider that follows the industry standard for computing power and server architecture. Our team is working round the clock to make sure that all system constituents are working at full capacity and they have peak performance at all times. To ensure that our supercomputer is efficiently operating, we monitor all three components of the HPC system- networking, data storage, and the hardware architecture- at all times. The necessary checks include synergy monitoring in order to make sure that all components are linked and function as one. These practices improve the speed of your desktop service by giving you more seamless integration at the back end and maximum HPC power.
The benefits from HPC for your company
There are numerous tangible benefits from HPC in revenue and ROI. To explain why we need to highlight the importance of high availability and high performance of desktop solution on user devices. Having fast deployment of applications with DaaS guarantees you higher productivity at the end-user site. This used to be achieved only with on-premise server technology, which was providing virtual desktop service to bigger companies that could afford to support the costly infrastructure. Things have changed since the emergence of the cloud and cloud-hosted solutions like DaaS, making fast desktop deployment affordable to companies with limited resources.Cloud desktop providers practically help businesses increase their efficiency by outsourcing their HPC infrastructure on a subscription basis. This way, organizations can make use of the high computing capacity of the existing server architecture from their provider and increase the speed and reliability of their desktop service immensely. Another great benefit of HPC is achieving a shorter time to results, which would normally take a lot longer to achieve.
If you are one step closer to finding the best cloud desktop solution for your business, you ought to think about HPC and where your provider stands with their computing power. There are a lot of misleading marketing campaigns by cloud vendors that promise high speed of DaaS, but they don’t support the processing capacity to justify that claim. The best way to make sure your desktop solution is working quickly and seamlessly is by making sure that your cloud provider runs your applications on several server sites simultaneously, and you have one or more data centers near you. This way you know that your data will be deployed fast and you will truly be making use of the HPC architecture available to you.
we-IT is a managed service provider ( MSP ) which has hundreds of data centers around the globe, allowing you to access your desktop service promptly, and without interruptions.
