LinuxPlanet: With its new round of "Cool Blue" PC servers, rolled out last week, IBM is starting to push HPC (high-performance computing) beyond the scientific-technical niche and into the mainstream, particularly among SMBs (small to mid-sized businesses). More business-oriented software solutions are becoming available for Linux and Windows editions of the servers alike, but a set of built-in innovations for making the most of electrical power could act as an even stronger draw for the five new servers.

GRIDToday: If you asked many industry/economic analysts around the world to name the most important variable in future economic growth off the top of their heads, the knee-jerk answer today would be the price of oil. Of course the cost of energy will be a major factor in all of our futures, but C-level industry executives will tell you that their most important resources are the gooey blobs nestled in the skulls of their wonderful employees.

ClusterMonkey.net: It is a common practice to have development and test servers for each production server, so that you can experiment with changes without the fear of breaking anything important, but this is usually not feasible with clusters. So how do you try that new version of your favorite program before committing it to the production cluster? A cheap and convenient possibility is to build a virtual cluster.

ClusterMonkey.net: Now that we know how to identify parallel parts of our program, the question is now what to do with this knowledge. Or, how do you write a parallel program. To answer this question, we will discuss what the structure of a parallel program may look like. Programs can be organized in different ways. We already discussed SPMD (Single Program Multiple Data) and MPMD (Multiple Programs Multiple Data) models. SPMD and MPMD represents the way a program looks from the point of view of the cluster. Note, that using a MPMD model with MPI an "app" or "procgroup" file will be needed to start different programs on cluster nodes. Let's see what the programs look from the implementation standpoint.
