Not Your Father's HPC

Marc Hamilton and I put the spin on High Performance Computing in the latest wave of our Innovating@Sun podcast program.

HPC normally conjures up images of big FORTRAN applications and ray tracing, look for radar shadows or casting light shadows to make computer animation more pleasing to our visual radar. But we're now seeing a class of HPC applications that shift the usual time-space tradeoffs, putting enough data into memory to allow near real-time analysis in areas like transaction fraud detection and logistics optimization.

Comments:

Good podcast. There's another great piece about how grids and HPC are changing on GridToday: Grids Get Transactional.
The customer interviewed in the piece is also running on Sun Solaris.
