High Performance Computing encompasses using "supercomputers" with high numbers of CPUs, large storage systems and advanced networks to do time-consuming calculations. Parallel algorithms and parallelization of storage are essential to this field, as well as issues with complex, fast networks.
Anyone know of an alternative to ScaleMP? They let several x86 boxes boot as one large box. Theoretically AMD's hypertransport should allow the same thing. Any other companies or OSS projects doing ...
I've got a number of servers used for HPC / cluster computing and I noticed that, given the fact that part of the computations they run use huge files over NFS, this causes significant bottlenecks. ...
