Supercomputers achieve their high performance computing capability by harnessing the power of several processors. Supercomputers are built using specialised components.
The hardware used in cluster and grid systems is very often "off-the-shelf". Advanced management and job scheduling software means that an array of processors from desktop PCs can form the basis of a cluster that delivers high performance computing. Well-established software already exists that performs these tasks and can be integrated into any Streamline solution.
A key area of Streamline's expertise is at the application software level. We provide solutions that enable developers to optimise the potential of cluster or grid computing systems. Our aim is to make clustering and grid solutions more viable and more affordable for a wide range of companies and organisations. As the only UK developer dedicated to creating application-level software for this highly specialised field, Streamline is in a class of its own.
