  • Western Digital Drives HPC Simulation Scale on AWS

    Any on premises HPC cluster has its own limits of scale and throughput. While end users always want to run their simulations and models faster, there are often practical limits to the scale of any particular code, and even if there are not, there are economic ones. No one can have a cluster sized for…
