CNews.ru: The Russian high-performance computing market doubled in 2006. Market players say growth rates will be similar in the coming few years. The only distinguished Russian player on the market is the T-Platforms company. It intends to take the leading position on it, 40%-45%. The company managed to occupy 1/3 of the new Top50 CIS supercomputers rating and thus grade up to IBM.
Market participants believe the rapid growth of the Russian high-performance market in 2006 (100%) is in the first place due to the activity of higher education facilities. 8 out of 13 most vigorous supercomputers are installed in Russian and Ukrainian Universities. The share of computers used in education and science grew by 8%, in research – by 4%. Meanwhile their industrial use reduced from 28% to 20%.
