Radio Free HPC Looks at the Need for Better Resource Management in Linux


“I think the time has come for Linux – and likely other operating systems – to develop a more robust framework that can address the needs of future hardware and meet the requirements for scheduling resources. This framework is not going to be easy to develop, but it is needed by everything from databases and MapReduce to simple web queries.”

How Collaboration is Driving Simulation Software at Airbus


“The goal at Airbus is to create a single fully integrated simulation-driven design process. He explained that they are developing simulation to the point where it is implemented from “conceptual design, to detailed design, all the way to the certification of the aircraft and finally to the continued development of the aircraft.”
