Cluster computing systems have caused disruptive changes in the HPC market. One consequence of the range of requirements for cluster networking is that the leading interconnects in HPC are Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), which is based on Ethernet networking standard, and InfiniBand, delivering upwards of 10X performance vs. GbE. Both show significant deployment in HPC.
Linux cluster maker Penguin Computing hopped on the HPC-in-a-cloud bandwagon this week with the announcement of its HPC on-demand service. Called Penguin On Demand (POD), the service consists of an HPC compute infrastructure whose capacity can be rented on a pay-as-you-go basis or through a monthly subscription.
