Microsoft Polishes High-Performance Computing Tool

I've recently knocked Microsoft for not doing enough to exploit graphics processors and multi-core processors with its client software. I am, however, way impressed with the pure research Microsoft is doing in HPC, mostly as it relates to clusters.

Microsoft is moving away from the cluster-centric perception by renaming Computer Cluster Server to HPC Server 2008, which is now in beta test. The upcoming tool encompasses SOA and high-speed networking.

Look for this new tool, er, I guess some time in 2008.
