Quant development: Massive Parallel Computing(20000 cores) Vs Small 1600core SMP Cluster

What information should be needed to ask so that you can make a reasoned assessment and recommendation between this two options?

By “SMP Cluster” do you really mean “cluster of SMPs” ? Or do you mean a single
shared memory address space for hundreds of processors?
If the latter, what systems are you considering and how would you program it?

Are you really trying to ask if multi-threading is better than message passing at this scale?

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
