High Performance Virtual Machines (HPVMs) can increase the accessibility and delivered performance of distributed computational resources for high performance computing applications.It is a project for building software technology for scalable clusters which leveraging commodity platforms, hardware (PC's, servers, and workstations) and software (Windows NT, Linux). While many commercial efforts in this area focus on transaction processing systems, HPVM project is focused on scalable performance for a broader range of applications including emerging national information infrastructure applications.

The HPVM software provides basic turnkey computing for HPC (High Performance Computing) clusters. It includes high speed communication layers, tools for coordinated resource management, and a Java-based front end for cluster access and management.
