If you Google for a definition of high performance computing, you’ll find several entries on several sites that can be condensed down to this: high performance computing describes the use of supercomputers or parallel processing algorithms to solve computationally intensive problems.
Today on the Datanauts podcast, we’re going to pick the brains of a person who has worked in high performance computing environments. We’re especially interested in the distributed computing aspects of HPC and the challenges it presents to the infrastructure engineering community.
Our guest is Nick Buraglio, a network architect and engineer at the Energy Sciences Network, the service provider network for the Department of Energy that connects national labs. Nick blogs at The Forwarding Plane.net.
