HPC | High Performance Computing

High-performance computing (HPC) is a technique that uses high-speed, high-performance computing systems to perform calculations and data processing faster and more efficiently. HPC is used in a wide variety of applications, including scientific research, financial analysis and product design. HPC systems are especially useful for complex calculations and real-time data processing, such as weather data analysis or satellite image processing.


High-performance processing systems are those designed to perform intensive calculations quickly and efficiently.

To achieve high performance, these systems are usually composed of multiple processors and use computational parallelization techniques.

Processors can be of different types, such as CPUs (central processors) or GPUs (graphics processors), and can be distributed in individual machines or in clusters of several connected machines.

In addition to processors, an HPC also requires a large amount of memory and storage to store data and computational results.

Some systems also include fast input/output devices, such as solid-state hard disks or high-speed network cards, to transfer data efficiently.
