What Is It? High Performance Computing (HPC) applies to a variety of computer configurations that allow multiple processors to be linked in order to perform parallel activities at very high speeds. By using common, off-the-shelf equipment linked together into a single system it is possible to build a relatively inexpensive system capable of performing well over a trillion floating-point operations per second. This is especially useful for scientific research and calculating engineering… CONTINUE READING
