What is High Performance Computing (HPC)?
Technology & Science / July 4, 2018

High performance computing (HPC) has become increasingly more popular and important in the world of engineering. But defining what HPC is and figuring out how it can be deployed to aid designers can be tricky. Nowadays, high performance computing is more and more important for the economic and technological development. The high performance computing also becomes an indicator to measure the power of a country. Therefore, it is important and meaningful to improve the performance and universality of high performance computing. High-performance computing (HPC) is the use of super computers and parallel processing techniques for solving complex computational problems. Basic Description of High Performance Computing  (HPC) High Performance Computing  (HPC) most generally refers to the practice of aggregating computing power in a way that delivers much higher performance than one could get out of a typical desktop computer or workstation in order to solve large problems in science, engineering, or business. High Performance Computing  (HPC) allows scientists and engineers to solve complex, compute-intensive problems. HPC applications often require high network performance, fast storage, and large amounts of memory, very high compute capabilities, or all of these. High performance computing runs a broad range of systems, from our desktop computers through large…

What is Cluster Computing
Technology & Science / February 24, 2018

Very often applications need more computing power than a sequential computer can provide. One way of overcoming this limitation is to improve the operating speed of processors and other components so that they can offer the power required by computationally intensive applications. Cluster computing is an increasingly popular high performance computing solution. Cluster computing is not a new area of computing. It is, however, evident that there is a growing interest in its usage in all areas where applications have traditionally used parallel or distributed computing platforms. The mounting interest has been fueled in part by the availability of powerful microprocessors and high-speed networks as off-the-shelf commodity components as well as in part by the rapidly maturing software components available to support high performance and high availability applications. Overview of Cluster Computing Cluster computing is best characterized as the integration of a number of off-the-shelf commodity computers and resources integrated through hardware, networks, and software to behave as a single computer. Initially, the terms cluster computing and high performance computing were viewed as one and the same. However, the technologies available today have redefined the term cluster computing to extend beyond parallel computing to incorporate load-balancing clusters (for example, web…
