        Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (WCCS) is changing the high performance computing (HPC) landscape. The Harvard Research Group (HRG) believes customers are responding positively to the increases in application availability and ease of systems administration associated with Windows and WCCS environments. Hewlett Packard recently told HRG that they have witnessed some applications perform within a range of plus or minus fifteen percent between Linux and Windows environments.

        Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard together are collaborating with leading HPC Independent Software Vendors to provide validated solutions, bringing to market real solution choices
        for customers preferring Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 over Linux for HPC cluster solutions.
