The two companies claim to see an increase in the number of companies seeking high-performance computing.

"Microsoft and Novell have reported an increase in the number of companies seeking their high-performance computing interoperability offering, which deploys workload management across both Windows HPC Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, and allows IT managers to balance server workloads by running specific applications on either Windows or Linux platforms. HPC uses either supercomputers or computing clusters to expedite the crunching of large amounts of data.

""Additionally, Microsoft and Novell reported having found a new HPC client base in a variety of economic sectors, 'such as the financial, health care, higher education and technology sectors,' Microsoft said June 1. While 'businesses looking for ways to streamline infrastructure management'—and with a need for lower-cost processing of massive amounts of data—would presumably always be in the market for such an offering, the increase in interest also hints that business IT spending could again be on the rise following the global recession."
