A Comparative Study: Taxonomy of High Performance Computing (HPC)

Ranjit Rajak


The computer technologies have rapidly developed in both software and hardware field. The complexity of software is increasing as per the market demand because the manual systems are going to become automation as well as the cost of hardware is decreasing. High Performance Computing (HPC) is very demanding technology and an attractive area of computing due to huge data processing in many applications of computing. The paper focus upon different applications of HPC and the types of HPC such as Cluster Computing, Grid Computing and Cloud Computing. It also studies, different classifications and applications of above types of HPC. All these types of HPC are demanding area of computer science. This paper also done comparative study of grid, cloud and cluster computing based on benefits, drawbacks, key areas of research, characterstics, issues and challenges.
