How to Increase Computing Power, Reducing Costs, Using the Local Windows TWS, in a Linux HPC Configuration

The Grid Computing represents the frontier of research in the field of parallel computing architectures. This term represents the formulation of an idea; i.e. to share computing resources, developed in recent years due to the rapid evolution of computer technology. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the development of computer systems dedicated to parallel and distributed computing. In particular, we will provide an overview of developments in the sharing of computing resources connected to the problems and technological developments and an analysis of the open problems that need a solution.  We will show how it was possible to integrate the Technical Workstation (hereafter TWS) with the current infrastructure of High Performance Computing (hereafter HPC). The idea of ​​creating such infrastructure is linked to the need to satisfy workloads, using the resources and characteristics of the TWS. We will analyze the configuration rules and safety issues detected in integrating the two structures.
