Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lv97zj/global) has announced the addition of the "Global High-performance Computing Server Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018" report to their offering.

The market has recently witnessed the emergence of cloud-based HPC solutions, referred to as HPCaaS. Although cloud-based HPC accounts for a very small portion of the overall market, its deployment is gaining popularity in some organizations. These organizations are using cloud-based HPC solutions to improve operational efficiency in a cost-effective manner. It optimizes the business process and increases organizations' profits, thereby enhancing the productivity and competitive advantage. However, most cloud deployments are being done through private cloud models, rather than public cloud, due to data security and other concerns.

There are many factors driving the growth of the Global HPC Server market, one of the main growth drivers is the increase in big data. In the current business environment, every organization, irrespective of its size, stores a considerably large amount of data.
