        Worldwide, governments represent the most significant user base of high performance computing (HPC). Supercomputers are deployed to investigate important scientific and engineering problems in both developed and emerging countries, as well as supporting a wide range of national security and defense applications such as cryptanalysis, advanced aircraft design, and satellite image processing to name but a few.

        Windows HPC Server 2008 is uniquely capable of providing speed and efficiency in a user-friendly, accessible, and manageable HPC environment that meets both government and industry needs.
