How the cloud and big compute are remaking HPC

Roughly 25 years ago, a few open source technologies combined to make a robust, commercial Internet that was finally ready to do business and take your money. Dubbed the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache HTTP Server, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python), this open source combination became the standard development stack for a generation of developers.

This time, however, the focus isn’t on building a new, online way to peddle dog food. Instead, a new technology renaissance is underway to tackle algorithmically complex, large-scale workloads that consume massive quantities of compute resources. Think vaccinations for COVID-19, building new supersonic jets, or driving autonomous vehicles. The science and engineering world is shipping faster and delivering newer innovations at a dizzying pace never witnessed before.
