When Scientific High Performance Computing (HPC) meets Big Data Tools
The NEC Auroroa Tsubasa Line is the latest vector processor technology to reach HPC. It represents the culmination of decades of R&D in traditional scientific HPC - the computers used for scientific simulations of weather, fluid dynamics etc.
The question is: can those vector processors, optimized for large scale physical and mathematical calculations, contribute to present day Big Data Analytics challenges?
We believe the answer is YES.
