High-Performance Linux Clusters

The present and future of high-performance computing.
Conclusion

The HPC market has made its choice, and the choice is the Linux OS due to its superior performance, lower costs and its community of open-source developers and vendors. Windows may have a lot to offer entry-level users, especially those with more limited resources or goals. Likewise, UNIX still has a lot to offer for many legacy HPC applications. However, both Windows and UNIX require more work to be able to deliver the same functionality and compelling price-performance value of Linux. The HPC market is more open and competitive than it has ever been, but it is clear that Linux is still the best choice for today and the foreseeable future.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
