HPC refers to the use of parallel processing techniques to solve compute-intensive problems; it is the practice of combining computing power in such a way that the resulting performance in solving complex problems is higher than the performance in regular desktop computers or workstations. Generally, these problems are those which cannot be solved on a standard PC within a significant amount of time due to the numerous of operations required or due to the limited amount of resources available.  HPC is used for applications that require high network computing, large storage and high-speed performance, including areas like energy, power and natural resources, aerospace and defense, biosciences, weather prediction, gaming and many others.

In HPC system, several technologies like algorithms, computer architecture, system software, and programs and electronics are brought together to solve advanced problems quickly and efficiently. There has been the rapid growth of the HPC market for its use in scientific computing due to its flexible and cost-effective solutions.  The demand for HPC solutions is increasing globally with the continuous growth of commercial web applications. Factors like the convergence of big data, advancements in cloud computing, and development of newer technologies drive the HPC market. Also, organizations from around the world recognize the need for high-performance computing due to security concerns and competitiveness.

With the increasing demand for faster processing, HPC is certainly expected to interest businesses of all sizes, especially in the areas of transaction processing and data warehouses. With challenges in simulation and scientific modeling areas being solved faster, the HPC systems continue to experience higher adoption rates.
