HP Wants to Compete with IBM by Building a Supercomputer

Hewlett Packard wants to compete with the supercomputer leader in the industry, IBM, by making two ultra-fast computers for the high-end business, according to The Wall Street Journal. HP's supercomputers are announced under the brand name Apollo.

 

One of the models, the HP Apollo 6000, is said to appeal to business clients that aim for supercomputer capabilities, that consume half the energy. The second supercomputer, HP Apollo 8000, is said to compete with IBM's high-end market, where supercomputers can cost  millions of dollars. HP says this machine will have an entirely liquid-cooled system.

 

The Apollos will go up against Watson, IBM's rival supercomputer, which has been first seen on the American TV quiz show “Jeopardy!,” Watson, was developed by IBM's research team, and named after the company's first CEO, Thomas J. Watson. This artificially intelligent computer system was developed to answer questions on “Jeopardy!”

Supercomputers are used by government agencies and big corporations that need immense computer capacity in order to do complex tasks. That's why they are extremely expensive.

 

HP surpasses IBM in the broad high-end computer market, with 32.3% market share last year, as compared to IBM's market share of 27.7%, according to The Journal. However, as HP remains to compete in the low-end market, IBM pulled back. In January, the company sold its low-end server business to Lenovo, for $2.3 billion.
