Virtualization will almost certainly play an important role as we scale out to ever larger clusters Rob Farber The selection of a new supercomputer for a scientific data center represents an interesting neurotic condition stemming from the conflict between a compulsion to acquire the best of the latest-generation computer hardware, and unresolved issues as users seek validation from legacy scientific software...
Rediscovering the advantages of the hybrid approach John Gustafson, Ph.D. The analogy between hybrid cars and hybrid computing is almost perfect: Combine two kinds of engines and use each in the situations for which they perform best. The result is energy savings…or, higher performance for the same energy cost. For both cars and computers, energy efficiency is becoming the primary issue. For hybrid computing, the two kinds of engines are a...
