Linux Cluster Systems Replace Traditional Supercomputers in High Performance Computing Market

According to 3DGeo, a seismic imaging company, the high performance computing market is experiencing a paradigm shift from traditional supercomputers and large parallel servers to Linux cluster systems. The company has purchased a 32-processor cluster system from Linux NetworX to use in its high computation data processing application. The Linux NetworX cluster system is used to perform various complex data processing tasks, including algorithms exclusive to 3DGeo, for seismic processing applications. The company plans to upgrade and add additional nodes in the future to the scalable cluster system offered by Linux NetworX. Scalability, system management tools, price performance and service/support issues are the main reasons 3DGeo selected the Linux NetworX cluster system.
