Ok … a nice article on HPC startup issues (really IT startup issues) at insidehpc. This is a good article. Makes the point that people are willing to spend on incremental change, and the revolutionary change requires a serious investment from (multiple) big players.
There are other reasons I like this article, but I won’t go into those here.
The point that Christopher makes is spot on. Exactly right. Innovation needs to make things simply drop in and work, with as little pain as possible. Large changes mean smaller adoption.
