For decades, HPC has established itself as an essential tool for discoveries, innovations and new insights in science, research and development, engineering and business across a wide range of application areas in academia and industry. Today High-Performance Computing is also well recognized to be of strategic and economic value – HPC matters and is transforming industries. This article will discuss new emerging technologies that are being developed for all areas of HPC: compute/processing, memory and storage, interconnect fabric, I/O and software to address the ongoing challenges in HPC such as balanced architecture, energy efficient high-performance, density, reliability, sustainability, and last but not least ease-of-use. Of specific interest are the challenges and opportunities for the next frontier in HPC envisioned around the 2020 timeframe: ExaFlops computing. We will also outline the new and emerging area of High Performance Data Analytics, Big Data Analytics using HPC, and discuss the emerging new delivery mechanism for HPC - HPC in the Cloud.
