The NM-AIST High performing computing (HPC) has the ability to process data and perform complex calculations at a high speed. We all know that a laptop with 3 GHz processor can perform around 3 billion calculations per second. While that is much faster than any human can achieve, the HPC can perform quadrillion of calculation per second. From business point of view it has been observed that it is through data that groundbreaking scientific discoveries are made, game changing innovations are fueled and quality of life is improved for billions of people around the global. HPC is the foundation for scientific, industrial and societal advancement. Technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), Machine learning and 3-D imaging evolves, the size and amount of data industries has to work with is growing exponentially. HPC can be used in issues like live streaming, tracking a developing storm, testing new products or analyzing stock trends, processing data in real time to mention a few.

The NM-AIST HPC will have provision three main components, the computing, networking and storage. In order to build a high computing architecture, the computer servers are networked together in a cluster. Software programs and algorithms run simultaneously on the servers in cluster. The cluster is networked to the data storage to capture the output. For efficiency to be realized each component must keep pace with other components. For example the storage component must be able to feed and ingest data to and from the computing servers as quickly as it is processed; likewise the networking components must be able to support the high-speed transportation of data between computing servers and data storage. If one component cannot keep up with the rest, the performance of the entire HPC infrastructure suffers.

The NM-AST HPC will give varieties of solutions and that will be the source of income to the university. • The HPC will be used to help scientists find sources of renewable energy, understand the evolution of the universe, predict and track storms and create new materials • In media and entertainment HPC will be used in editing feature films, render mind-blowing special effects and stream life events around the world • In oil and gas, HPC can be used to identify more accurately where to drill for new wells and help boost production from existing wells • Artificial intelligent and Machine learning, HPC will be used to detect credit card fraud, provide self-guided technical support, teach self-driving vehicles and improve cancer screening techniques. • Financial services, HPC will be used to track real time stock trends and automated trading • HPC is used to design new products, simulate test scenarios and make sure that parts are kept in stock so that production lines are not held up • HPC is used to help develop cures for diseases like diabetes and cancer and to enable faster more accurate patient diagnosis These are a few examples on how the HPC can create value for income generation to the university.
