High Performance Cluster Computing: Architectures and Systems
Rajkumar BuyyaISBN: 0130137847;
High Performance Cluster Computing contains academic articles concerning supercomputing collected from researchers around the world. Though targeted primarily at graduate students and researchers in computer science, the general reader may find great value in its overview of the current state of high-performance computing. Computer science experts address many aspects of high performance computing, beginning with the state-of-the-art concepts and basic terminology related to cluster computing. Their investigations provide immediate solutions to engineering problems like optimized node arrangements for low-cost workstations yoked together to solve problems in parallel. One article describes such a cluster created for the Department of Energy that uses 9,000 Pentium CPUs to model nuclear detonations. Various contributors also consider the requirements necessary for improving parallel programs in terms of speed and logic, including reductions in network latencies and...
