Areas of collaboration are to include the development and operation of HPC technologies and applications and associated industrial outreach and partnership efforts. The HPCIC and HC were created to spur economic development by increasing the impact of HPC on technological innovation. As a result of this common mission the HPCIC and HC share common goals: making HPC resources and expertise available to industry and academia; seeking to develop and deploy scalable solutions that solve customer problems; proving a return on investment to an often skeptical audience; and a focus on accelerating the innovations that spur economic growth.
In addition, both centers offer an IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer as their primary industrial computing resource. Among the

Industry's adoption of high-end supercomputing has been hindered by one or more barriers, such as the high cost of HPC systems; the lack of software appropriate to the task; or a lack of domain expertise in applying HPC to industrial problems. Both the HC and HPCIC are designed to remove these hurdles, to demonstrate the potential of supercomputing and to accelerate innovation for economic development.
Initial joint projects with HC will likely include the development of software tools that would allow industry to leverage BG/Q's computing power for industrial and business applications. BG/Q's architecture lends itself to data intensive computing tasks important to work in applications such as cybersecurity, network optimization, atmospheric modeling, bioinformatics and medicine. Data intensive computing is commonly referred to as "big data."
