New challenges with HPC going mainstream
With commodity X64 hardware and interconnects flooding the market, HPC and distributed computing are going mainstream. Every day, more applications and more users benefit from this new technology paradigm. The workload scheduler is a more and more frequent component of clusters, and for many applications it effectively becomes the main Network Operating System.
These trends also generate new challenges:
