The use of supercomputing as a tool for solving problems in a wide variety of fields has grown exponentially in recent years. From its beginnings in the 80's and 90’s, when the owners of the first supercomputers were mainly public entities such as universities, research centres, or the military, their use in the private sector has grown significantly. Thus, HPC has become a highly valuable, even indispensable tool in many important companies in industries such as defence, pharmaceutical, chemical, automotive, and/or aerospace.
This is the context in which HPCNow! was founded by three partners with wide expe- rience in the management of high-performance computers and a thorough back- ground in the use of scientific HPC codes. The company offers its expertise and knowledge with the aim of helping its customers to get the most out of HPC techno- logies by providing simple and efficient supercomputer usage.
