Linux clusters give Monash Uni a budget supercomputer

,----[ Quote ]
| Low cost, reliable clustering has enabled Monash University to deliver 
| supercomputing power to its researchers. 
| High Performance Computing Clusters (HPCC), which are virtualised groups of 
| Intel-based blade servers running Linux, have enabled the Melbourne-based 
| University to maintain a supercomputer with non-specialist staff, according 
| to Adrian Ling, Monash's manager of infrastructure and major IT projects.   


In servers, Linux is still king.

Why is Linux THE FASTEST operating system today?

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that I mentioned supercomputers at the time of this writing the worlds
| fastest supercomputer runs Linux. In fact most of them run Linux as you will
| see here in the list of the top 500 supercomputers. Out of all of the
| operating systems on these supercomputers Linux is a whopping 87.8% with
| windows only (giggle) 1% as can be seen here. The current worlds fastest
| supercomputer runs..... Redhat Linux and Fedora. The exact same ones you can
| download and install on your personal computer.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
