Finding oil and gas has always been a tricky proposition, given that reserves are primarily hidden underground, and often as not, under the ocean as well. The costs involved in acquiring rights to a site, drilling the wells, and operating them are considerable and has driven the industry to adopt advanced technologies for locating the most promising sites. As a consequence, oil and gas exploration today is essentially an exercise in scientific visualization and modeling, employing some of most advanced computational technologies available. High performance computing (HPC) systems are being used to fill these needs, primarily with x86-based cluster computers and Lustre storage systems. The technology is well developed, but the scale of the problem demands medium to large-sized systems, requiring a significant capital outlay and operating expense. The most powerful systems deployed by oil and gas companies are represented by petaflop-scale computers with multiple petabytes of attached

After a long dry spell triggered in part by the global downturn in the economy, manufacturing is enjoying an economic and technological resurgence. According to the Institute of Supply Management1 (ISM), American manufacturing continues to improve. The ISM recently reported that manufacturing activity expanded in September 2014 for the 16th consecutive month, and that the overall national economy grew for the 64th consecutive month. Part of this growth is being fueled by the adoption of computer aided engineering (CAE) and analysis solutions powered by high performance computing (HPC)—especially by the Tier One manufacturers. HPC is beginning to make some inroads into the ranks of the small to medium sized manufacturers (SMMs), but the going is slow.

A high performance computing (HPC) cluster refers to a group of servers built from off-the-shelf components that are connected via certain interconnect technologies. A cluster can deliver aggregated computing power from its many processors with many cores — sometimes hundreds, even thousands — to meet the processing demands of more complex engineering software, and therefore deliver results faster than individual workstations. If your company is in the majority that could benefit from access to more computing power, a cluster comprised of commodity servers may be a viable solution to consider, especially now that they’re easier to purchase, deploy, configure and maintain than ever before. Read more and learn about the '5 Easy Steps to a High Performance Cluster'.
