The article focuses on the use of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell in supercomputers around the world. Forty percent of supercomputers worldwide are running on SUSE Linux Enterprise. Novell is bringing the same high performance computing capabilities utilized in supercomputers to enterprises and mid-market customers in a range of industries. Customers are running supercomputers and computer clusters on SUSE to handle mission-critical workloads with minimal downtime. Supercomputers at the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Advanced Supercomputing Division operate on SUSE to meet engineering and science requirements and control system operation.
