Windows HPC X Windows Standard/Enterprise RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is there any technical difference between Windows HPC edition and Windows Standard/Enterprise edition? I know that Windows HPC edition has less features/roles than the Standard/Enterprise edition, but its kernel, is it different?

    My understanding is that the HPC edition was created to lower the costs to deploy a HPC cluster, but from a technical viewpoint, they share the same kernel. Is my understanding correct?

    Thanks,

    -George

  • Yes, you're understanding is correct. The differences between Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, and HPC Edition editions are in the role/feature availability and the 'technical limits' (procs, ram), and licensing.

    The editions share the same base code, so patching/updates/service packs are unified.
