In software, hardware, data centers and cloud computing, the figures of virtualization technology can be seen. Where the virtualization technology has not really been involved in is in high-performance computing. By analyzing the specific applications of virtualization technology and the possible challenges it will face if applied in high-performance computing, this paper highlights the virtualization technology application prospects in high performance computing. Compared with the extensive application in x86 server field, virtualization technology's application in high performance computing is relatively scarce. As the authors all know, the extensive use of virtualization technology in x86 servers has a necessary condition - the utilization and load of the server's CPU is low.
