HPC has evolved from being a buzzword to becoming one of the most exciting areas in the field of Information Technology & Computer Science. Organizations are increasingly looking to HPC to improve operational efficiency, reduce expenditure over time and improve the computational power. Using Super Computers hosted on a particular location and connected with the Internet can reduce the installation of computational power and making it centralise. However, centralise system has some advantages and disadvantages over the distributed system, but the authors avoid discussing those issues and focusing more on the HPC systems.
