Blowing The Doors Off HPC Speed-up Numbers

,----[ Quote ]
| My interest in benchmarking has a practical 
| side for HPC. As everyone is well aware, the 
| Linux HPC ecosystem changes rapidly with 
| updated kernels (drivers), libraries (MPI), 
| and applications. Early on, I would ask 
| myself this questions, âWhat influence do 
| these updates have on performance?â It is 
| naive to think that all updates always lead 
| to better performance. In order to 
| quantitatively measure these changes, I put 
| together what I called the Beowulf 
| Performance Suite. My intention was not to 
| create a benchmark, but rather a way to 
| measure the effects of change.


Stayin' alive: Ten years of Linux on the mainframe

| It would be hard to find two technologies 
| that would seem to be more diametrically 
| opposed in the data center than the IBM 
| mainframe and the open source Linux 
| operating system. But the combination of the 
| two, which then-IBM president and now IBM 
| chairman and CEO Sam Palmisano championed 
| (or more precisely, gets credit for 
| championing within Big Blue regardless of 
| whose idea it may have been), saved the 
| System z mainframe business.

| They have released this yearâs list and in
| terms of the operating system used it is
| Linux all the way with more than 90% of
