Abstract

UNTIL recently supercomputers were regarded as very specialised and expensive computing resources. But thanks to the influence of the UNIX operating system and decreasing cost of hardware, supercomputers are becoming more affordable. Availability of low cost entry level models and greater adherence to Open Systems is allowing full interoperability within mixed vendor environments.
