"Che noted that traditional high performance computing
environments, such as financial services and research are used to
calling distributed computing a grid.
""They don't think of their own workloads as a cloud because
they've been doing it for years," Che added. "We call it a grid but
depending on who we talk to we emphasize the point its not so much
it's a grid but it's the ability to execute any time of computation
from sub-second calculations to persistent applications," Che
"Another key improvement in the MRG 1.1 platform is improved
low-latency messaging that can potentially impact performance with
dramatic results. With MRG 1.1, Red Hat is including new RDMA
(Remote Direct Memory Access) (define)that can be used to take full
of advantage of either Infiniband or 10 GbE (gigabit Ethernet)
interfaces, Che said."
