New research from International Data Corp. shows the impact big data is having on high performance computing systems. The research firm’s 2013 study, IDC Worldwide Study of HPC End-User Sites, includes sites representing 905 HPC systems, nearly double the 488 systems profiled in the previous version of the study.

The proportion of sites employing co-processors or accelerators in their HPC systems increased from 28 percent in the 2011 version of the study to 77 percent in 2013. More than two-thirds (67 percent) of the sites in the 2013 study said they perform big data analysis on their HPC systems, with 30 percent of the available computing cycles devoted on average to big data analysis work.
