HP Unified Cluster Portfolio (UPC) offers reference stacks for cluster computers from 5 to 1024 nodes with a choice of interconnects.
In days of yore when supercomputers were giant CPUs built from discrete parts to outperform microprocessors, servers were just telecomm accessories. Today, however, the microprocessors in servers pack supercomputing punch. Custom built supercomputers will always be better performers for specific applications, but with the converging trends of moving computer power to the clouds and the use of multiple standard GPUs for acceleration, the time is right to pack supercomputer performance into server farms. Look for supercomputers to proliferate both in-house and in-the-clouds as more and more designers turn to them for detailed simulations of products before they are prototyped. R.
