The End of Clusters?

Posted March 30, 2009 at 20:58 by gocarts

Are we approaching the end of cluster computing for CFD? Or is it simply the end of the beginning of an era to be further dominated by clusters?

The premise is that a collection of computers (a cluster) can process data in parallel much faster and more cost effectively than a single standalone computer. Until recently clusters were the only viable means to compute large CFD simulations for engineering applications, such as those found in Formula 1.

Now we have available...
