News SYS-Con India is running an article on the growth of Linux clusters in scientific and technical computing, the technical hurdles involved, and the potential cost savings.
Many researchers and engineers have made Linux their operating environment of choice due to its wide familiarity, broad support, and ease of use for both users and administrators. Today Linux clusters are the fastest-growing type of HPC system. Clusters represented a third of the technical server market in 2004 and half the market by the first quarter of 2005. And, between 2002 and 2004, revenue from Linux-based systems more than quadrupled. In addition, key applications in many fields - including most independent software vendor (ISV) applications such as computational fluid dynamics codes used for computer-assisted engineering (CAE) - are now certified for Linux and many were even designed to run specifically on Linux.
