    Oil and natural resource discovery and production is an incredibly risky endeavor, with the cost of simply finding a new barrel of oil tripling over the last ten years. Discovery teams want to ensure they are only drilling in the most lucrative locations, which these days means looking to increasingly inaccessible (for a bevy of reasons) sources for hydrocarbons.

    For all the promise of cloud, there are still segments of IT, such as HPC and many categories of big data analytics that have been resistant to wholesale outsourcing to public cloud resources. At present, cloud computing makes up only 2.4 percent of the HPC market by revenue, and although Intersect360 Research forecast its growth at a robust 10.9 per year, that still keeps it well under five percent throughout the five-year forecast period.
