Utility HPC: What Every Enterprise Can Learn from Utility Supercomputing

June 3, 2013

Whether your organization’s compute demands warrant 50 cores of HPC, or 50,000 cores, the management challenges are actually quite similar. It turns out that the same management software used to prepare a cluster of 10,000+ cores can actually create small clusters that much more reliably. So what lessons can any Enterprise IT organization learn from the experiences of their larger compute-consuming colleagues? Read more…
