In 2012, some of UK’s leading banks took part in our study at how mature their management of high performance computing environments are within their organisations. Based on Excelian’s maturity model that encompasses elements on enterprise readiness, resource utilisation, middleware maturity, operating model and SLA/cost model, the study grades each participants when compared to an ideal situation where the HPC environment is fully commoditised and shared at the enterprise level.

This benchmark also gives a good understanding of market trends in terms of HPC technologies that we summarised in the infograph below.
