Addison Snell Laura Segervall Christopher G. Willard Ph.D. Vendor Overview and Outlook: Microsoft Azure in HPC

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Intersect360 Research report presents an overview and outlook for Microsoft Azure in the worldwide high performance computing (HPC) market, as of December 2019.

Microsoft Azure is a major vendor of cloud-based services for the worldwide HPC market. Intersect360 Research tracks cloud usage and adoption in HPC, including cloud revenue segmented into major categories: raw compute cycles, storage, environment hosting, and application hosting. Intersect360 Research tracks cloud providers as part of our HPC User Site Census survey. Because guidance from vendors is limited, Intersect360 Research does not publish revenue shares for cloud providers in HPC. However, we do provide estimated ranges for the top three providers, including Microsoft Azure.

Drawing on market tracking and surveys from the Intersect360 Research HPC advisory service, this report includes:

  • Estimated market share range for 2018 for Microsoft Azure as an HPC cloud provider, with comparisons to other major vendors
  • Relevant supporting data from Intersect360 Research end-user surveys
  • SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats)
  • Recommendations to Microsoft Azure

Note that Microsoft is also a major consumer of IT as a hyperscale organization. Intersect360 Research tracks this consumption separately as part of its Hyperscale market advisory service. This report focuses on Microsoft Azure as a vendor of cloud technologies to other organizations running HPC applications.

“Vendor Overview and Outlook” reports from Intersect360 Research are not sponsored content. Intersect360 Research chooses vendors to cover in such reports based on their position in the marketplace, and the choice to publish this report does not imply the existence—or lack thereof—of a client relationship with the company profiled. The full Intersect360 Research neutrality statement is available on the web at www.intersect360.com.
