Market growth to come from Smaller HPC systems

One of our favorite HPC pundits, John E. West, writes that the real growth in HPC right now is in the sale of smaller systems:

There is a lot of new money pouring into HPC, and the promise of much more to come, in smaller clusters of 32 to 128 nodes.” Full Story.


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
