HPC is without doubt a key enabling technology for many technologically advanced nations in the 21st century. Many countries world-wide are investing in HPC and some, most notably the USA, China and Japan are investing vast sums of public money on related infrastructure. The importance of HPC is summarised well by the statement contained in a recent report by industry experts IDC: “Today, to Out-Compute is to Out-Compete”. The rise in performance and capability of HPC is now threatened by technological factors, in particular energy requirements and the fact that microprocessor speeds are no longer expected to increase in the way they have in the past.
