HPC in the Datacenter: Who Let the Dogs Out?

Jonathan Eunice, President, Principal Analyst, and IT Advisor, Illuminata

Enterprises have used "high performance computing" (HPC) for years—but often in the relatively narrow realm of scientific and engineering applications. Now HPC is expanding beyond "technical computing" as it comes into its own for mainstream commercial users. In fact, many of today's key network computing, business analysis, and transaction applications cannot be handled any other way. So, what is all this HPC stuff? Why is it suddenly entering my datacenter? And, where is it all heading?
