High performance computing (HPC) is the ability to process data and perform complex calculations at high speeds. HPC, or supercomputing, paves the way for new innovations in science, technology, business and manufacturing. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can hugely benefit from these technologies as HPC systems increase competitiveness while saving time and money. Thus, HPC can be used to generate new business value.
