3. High performance computing
Open source will produce the next generation of high performance computing clusters that underlie big data analysis and applications. The high speeds of such computing clusters provide the ability to parse gargantuan volumes of data in milliseconds. Enterprises in every single industry now need such capabilities to make use of the data they collect. Clustering can also help enterprise websites support wide fluctuations in visitors and usage without faltering in performance. We created this clustering technology way back in 2004 before data analytics became crucial to business strategies. Today, it will be the key to pinning down valuable data at a reasonable cost.
