High-Performance Linux Clusters
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.
