High Performance Computing


NEC has a long history in High Performance Computing, with 38 years of experience providing large scale computing systems for industry, academic and scientific purposes. NEC has a dedicated sales and pre-sales team with many years of experience in HPC. With an in-house development group for new HPC solutions, NEC can quickly adopt state-of-the-art technologies to fit the customers' needs.

High Performance Computing (HPC) is a way to tackle complex mathematical, scientific or engineering problems. Alongside theory and experiment, computer-supported simulations of natural or technical processes have established themselves as a third pillar in the field of science and research. It is nowadays inconceivable that an aircraft manufacturer or a Formula One racing team would operate without using simulation software. Scientific calculations, such as in the field of astrophysics, medicine, pharmaceuticals or life sciences, depend on supercomputing to a very large extent.

With the proprietary vector systems, a wealth of x86-based products including accelerators, and storage appliances, NEC provides complete solutions for all kinds of requirements. In addition NEC has the necessary skills to provide HPC services, from simple installation and customization to running the most complex heterogeneous systems in mission-critical operational environments, including code development and tuning consultancy by experienced analysts.
