John West at insideHPC.com has come up with a great idea. He’s doing profiles of interesting companies in or around the High-Performance Computing (HPC) market, with the intent of distilling the marketing language and press coverage and white papers and Webcasts and conference events into something unique and important about each firm.
As I read him, John’s not trying to set himself up as a new HPC market analyst a la Gartner or Forrester or the451 or the rest — but he’s trying to make sense of the market for himself and his readers. Frankly, I can’t imagine how customers and potential customers sort through the noise in this market without some sort of truly expert and independent guidance.
We’re fortunate enough to be the second entry in his new series of profiles, filed under “the 411″ on insideHPC.com. He captured the importance of Digipede quite well in this recent profile, at least for the HPC market (only part of our market can really be called HPC — many of our customers would not identify themselves as part of the HPC market).
