T-Platforms Leads Russian Supercomputer Market

March 11 -- T-Platforms company, the leader of the Russian supercomputing industry, in 2008 became the number one HPC systems provider in Russia and the CIS having supplied 32 percent of the overall supercomputing power in the region. Moreover, T-Platforms showed the fastest growth: while the total combined performance of all HPC systems installed on those territories increased by 40 percent, the overall performance of T-Platforms' deliveries grew by 103 percent. Due to information on some HPC systems in Russia is strictly classified, the market was measured by the total performance of the systems upon which data is available and can be verified.

Unlike with other industries, the most justified approach to measure a supercomputer market would be to assess the total performance of HPC installations in a region rather than the sales volumes of system providers. In supercomputing, a successful project means more computing power for less money, and it is the ability to deliver better price/performance which makes a system developer competitive. Therefore, to estimate a vendor's market share correctly one should look at the total performance of its deliveries rather than at its customers' spendings.

T-Platforms has summed up the results of the year 2008 estimating vendors ...
