The term high-performance computing (HPC) has been around for decades and typically describes the most powerful computing solutions available (e.g., super computers). Today, we define HPC as high-performing computing, storage and network connectivity that powers unconventional or specialized workloads. It can be in the form of physical hardware at a client or CGI location, but most often resides these days in the cloud.
Rapid advances in data-driven, environmental, safety, security and other science and technology fields are driving the need for high-performance computing (HPC). Globalization and other economic trends are likewise driving the need. CGI’s emerging technology practices across the globe innovate jointly with clients to develop innovative solutions, and we support these solutions through HPC.
CGI’s HPC experts work with clients locally, but also offer the strength of global resources. We collaborate with industry and academia to bring the latest HPC technology to our clients. We also value agile experimentation and learning and combine human psychology and human-centered design with deep emerging technology and industry expertise to deliver transformative innovation through HPC.
