HPC Cloud Computing
Organizations that rely on HPC resources are increasingly investigating cloud computing as a solution that offers additional computing capacity and flexibility. Clouds reduce or eliminate altogether the need to make incremental long-term, often costly hardware and infrastructure investments. To date, cloud solutions have been primarily focused on running important business applications like CRM, ERP, email and other database programs.
