Also known as HPC.
Certain business and government functions depend on the ability to rapidly process large quantities of data and perform complex calculations at high speeds. Supercomputers and clusters of computers are available to address these requirements, capable of performing quadrillions of calculations per second. A supercomputer contains hundreds or thousands of ‘compute nodes’ working together on a common task (parallel processing). Common HPC and supercomputing applications include weather calculations, AI applications, product testing, and more.
