The future of high performance computing (HPC) is in clusters and parallel computing. The last single processor computers on the TOP500 list disappeared in 1997 — more than 15 years ago. Clusters allow us to compute larger and more detailed models faster than ever before, but taking the step into the world of HPC can be a challenge. A lot of time, money, and research must be invested when building a cluster from scratch. What kind of hardware should the cluster have? What type of network? The list of things to consider can be very long, and when all these questions are settled and the cluster is set up, there is the question of updates, troubleshooting, and general maintenance. For newcomers to HPC, this step might feel like a large hurdle to overcome, leading them to miss out on the advantages that more computing power offers. Now consider the Intel® Cluster Ready program.
