But what does the future hold and how will HPC and cloud fit in the coming year? Here are my top predictions for the paths these technologies will take in 2020.
- Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will increasingly move into the cloud.
Moving forward, organizations seeking to drive business value with AI and ML will take advantage of the price and performance benefits with cloud. They’ll also rely on workload orchestration solutions to facilitate the convergence of compute-intensive ML workloads across HPC infrastructure. Whether your computing power is on-premises or in the cloud, it’s important to manage your workloads efficiently to bring compute consumption as close as possible to real demand.
- Single-platform cloud access and dynamic resource scaling will be on the rise.
It’s very clear that the demand for cloud-enabled and cloud-native applications will only increase. Companies are moving towards sourcing computing resources dynamically instead of relying on rigid applications that live full-time in a predetermined computing environment.
Solutions like Altair HyperWorks Unlimited™ are designed to make it all easier. Available as a physical or a virtual cloud-based appliance, HyperWorks Unlimited combines software, system administration, and infrastructure-as-a-service in a single, intuitive platform.
- HPC visibility and usage will expand within organizations.
2020 is going to be an exciting year for cloud and for high-performance computing. In a post-Moore’s Law era we’re looking beyond speed and compute power to scalability and easy access to compute resources when you need them, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the year ahead will take us.
