Dell hopes to do for HPC what it did for personal computers: Democratize high-performance computers across a broad swathe of enterprise applications. “HPC is at the core of everything we do. It’s just different HPC. It’s not nuclear reactors. You’re not designing weapons systems. You’re gaining insights that are actionable in real-time,” said Paul Perez, chief technology officer for ...

The firm, which today employs about 600 people, collects data from a ...
