SSDs in HPC: Reducing the I/O Bottleneck BluePrint Best Practices

High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications can be dramatically increased by simply using SSDs instead of traditional hard drives. To read about these findings see the Sun BluePrint by Larry McIntosh and Michael Burke, called "Solid State Drives in HPC: Reducing the I/O Bottleneck".

There was a BestPerf blog posting on the NASTRAN/SSD results at:

Our BestPerf authors will blog about more of their recent benchmarks in the coming weeks.
