A Linux HPC cluster is a group of numerous separate computers/servers (nodes) that are connected and built on a Linux open-source operating system.
Building and managing high-performance Linux clusters for HPC applications is no easy task. With hundreds or thousands of hardware and software elements that must work in unison spanning compute, networking and storage, the skills, knowledge and experience required to do this is often more than an organization can cope with.
High-Performance Computing, also known as “HPC”, is the process of harnessing the power of a supercomputer to achieve a much higher level of performance than from a single computer.
HPC solutions are used by organizations all over the world that require exceedingly high-speed computations for scientific and academic research, engineering, manufacturing, and business.
