Digital transformation which was once considered as an additional driving factor of success in organisations had now changes it status. Today, it had become the master key in determining longevity as well as success in many organisations. In 2020, due to the covid-19 outbreak, digital transformation became more important than ever. The transformation had helped many organisations to survive numerous stormy days during the outbreak. Nowadays, the number of data continues to grow as digital transformation continues to accelerate with the advancement of technologies. This leads to the need for a more efficient computing system or in other words, high performance computing (HPC). Recently, many organisations from various industries had started to see the benefits of adopting HPC on cloud. What are the contribution of HPC on cloud to industries ?
Science and engineering
In research and innovation, scientists and engineers work with abundance amount of data. Designing new models or building simulation requires analysis and calculation of numerous variables and mathematical problems. HPC on cloud provides elastic infrastructures which allows them to model and simulate application without the need to wait for turns to use a highly specialised HPC hardware. With HPC on cloud, scientist and engineers can focus more on experimenting process and less time is spent on building and maintaining hardware.
As more organisation started to shift their focus into E-commerce business, the role of internet of behaviour brings more data for computing. Large-scale businesses need HPC to process such data (customers browsing activities, spending habits and online behaviour) for them to make better decision in marketing their products. While HPC helps in speeding up the computing process, opting HPC on cloud help them dismiss extra cost on equipment and data scientists. There are numbers of cloud service providers to choose from; for good cloud service providers offers benefits where businesses do not need to manage the service on their own.
Oil and gas
Generally, the workload involved in oil and gases industry is consistent, however, in certain situation, there will be urgent demands for carrying out more runs than average. HPC on cloud offers cloud bursting where hybrid cloud is utilised temporarily in order to keep up with IT peak demands.
The industry today is in the era of digitalisation or best known as industry 4.0. As modern and advanced the industry had become, the advancement of technology is never ending. Hence, the use of data may be larger than what we are dealing today. In conclusion, application of HPC on cloud is undeniably the smartest investment for an organisation to stay competitive in their industry.
