Abstract: Scientists doing research in fields ranging from genomics to astronomy are facing various challenges. The use of digital technology to enhance existing research efforts and enable new types of research not imaginable before is slowly but steadily gaining popularity in South Africa. One reason for this relatively slow adoption is the lack of appropriate scientific computing infrastructure. Open and distributed high-performance computing (HPC) represents a radically new computing concept for data and computationally intensive applications. A number of different technologies and standards were identified as core to the open and distributed high-performance infrastructure envisaged
