""After 10 or so years, distributed computing on Linux and x86 cluster platforms continues to deliver impressive performance gains while driving price points which enable adoption of HPC applications," said Crystal Smith, a spokesperson for Penguin Computing (San Francisco, Calif.)

"She sees the server and HPC markets continuing to innovate at a rapid pace. In terms of CPU architectures, she predicts we will soon be seeing close to 50-by-64-bit capable CPU cores in a single node. That will prove to be a boon for HPC workloads that can make good use of multiple parallel I/O requests or computations.

"Accordingly, the company continues to upgrade its products with the latest architectures and technologies, particularly its Altus and Relion lines."
