Enterprises today are in a state of constant change as they prepare to adopt technologies that make them future ready. Enterprise infrastructure solution provider Tyrone Systems is designing solutions that will help the companies adopt high performance computing and run their businesses efficiently, securely and reliably into the next technological era. Sandeep Lodha, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Tyrone Systems talks about why deploying HPC systems today is relevant and important so that they can transform into next generation of business.
How fast is it becoming relevant for businesses to deploy HPC infrastructure?
If I have to use a word to attribute to this question my choice would be “Design”. Today design is a very important aspect. Better, faster, economical, efficient, cheaper etc. are the adjectives I would like to add to “Design”. Now-a-days HPC is being used for designing even potato wafers (tastier could be another adjective here). In fact, pharmaceuticals to nuclear science all are using HPC. Going forward I see more emphasis on design as incremental innovation and customisation will be taking central stage hence HPC will be anything but more relevant.
Which industry segments today are the biggest adopters of this technology?
As mentioned above the adoption currently is in huge number of segments. Some of those which touch our day to day life are Pharma, FMCG, Oil and Gas, Medical sciences, material sciences, Ocean research, weather forecasting etc.
Since deploying an HPC infrastructure involves many complicated steps, what is your take on how companies should approach this game-changing technology?
Well, I do not think that challenges of deploying HPC will be a road block. The need and urge of having HPC is driven from its usefulness and edge it provides. HPC has its own ecosystem and which is fast growing and improving. As far as infrastructure is concerned it could be addressed by either having on premise or by having it on cloud. Both have its own set of advantage and disadvantages. It needs to be seen which is the best course based on number of factors like budget, usage, security etc. We at Tyrone do have team which helps the customer to do all the required designs and deployment of the infrastructure. We do have some customised tools for easy deployment and management. We also do have a cloud offering for our customers.
When starting out how should an organization begin the process?
As mentioned above there are several factors need to be considered. I guess the first is the usage. Customer need to define the usage and based on that the right path and technology can be selected.
What happens to existing investments in IT when an organisation begins to adopt HPC?
