High-performance computing (HPC) systems use specialized hardware and software to solve particular types of results much faster than general-purpose systems. HPC may be measured in terms of operation rate (typically FLOPS), the largest dataset which can be directly accessed (or the speed at which data can be accessed), number of processors which can be engaged in parallel, or other benchmarks.
