1999 International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (Cat. No.PR00425) (1999)

Oct. 12, 1999 to Oct. 16, 1999

Sky high costs and through the roof servicing of traditional specialized supercomputing has put immense pressure for earth-bound pricing and clustering solutions. Vectors and scalable UNIX-based solutions are not going to disappear, but over time Linux clusters will likely do for supercomputing what the Apple II did for personal computing: bring down costs, ease use, and make high-end computing power commercially viable and consumer available. This movement is in its adolescence, but maturity is rapidly approaching. This talk will discuss what is being done to integrate today's real solutions with tomorrow's promise.
