Tabor Research is in the midst of conducting in depth end user interviews with organizations running or considering Edge HPC applications (see http://www.taborresearch.com/edgemarket.html for Edge HPC definition). As we have completed the initial interviews several similarities and difference between the two branches of high productivity computing have become apparent.
One characteristic of the HPC industry analyst job is that technology, applications, and user genius combine to boggle the mind on a regular basis. (I have never figured out if I should consider this a perk, or ask for hazardous duty pay.) This current excursion into the Edge market has so far rated high on the boggle-o-meter producing surprises in such areas as: system scaling requirements, real world to model communications requirements, and diversity of applications. Thus providing yet another similarity between Traditional and Edge High Productivity Computing.
