High performance computing (HPC) aggregates multiple resources to solve complex and computationally intensive applications. Using parallel processing, high-speed networks, and parallel file systems, HPC systems quickly and reliably process enormous amounts of data.
As with enterprise data centers, HPC environments have strenuous security requirements to actively defend the network and the data. However, HPC systems have the added challenge of providing these safeguards without any performance degradation. This secure and performant HPC system can be implemented effectively and efficiently using a multi-layer security model.
