Center for Autonomic Computing works with Microsoft to Accelerate Real-World Applications on Windows HPC Server 2008

The Center for Autonomic Computing (CAC) at Rutgers University is collaborating with Microsoft to accelerate real-world parallel and distributed applications on the Windows HPC Server 2008 platform.

For example, as part of this effort, students at at CAC are working with industry partners to enable the rapid parallel processing of large amounts of data, such as molecular data used by pharmaceutical companies, and have developed innovative autonomic solutions that can accelerate Hadoop by up to 250% for these applications.
