以前、MPP系 HPCではチェックポイントのストアーが演算実行の足を引っ張る
方法でのチェックポイントやそれを補完する技術 (確実性の高い MPI通信の
開発等) が進められてきています。

Open Resilient Cluster Manager (ORCM)
"The Open Resilient Cluster Manager (ORCM, or OpenRCM) is an open-source
 project focused on development of an "always on" resource manager for
 high-performance computing systems of any size."

  "... Current techniques to ensure progress across faults, like
   checkpoint-restart, are unsuitable at these scale due to excessive
   overheads predicted to more than double an applications time to
   solution. Redundant computation, long used in distributed and mission
   critical systems, has been suggested as an alternative to
   checkpoint-restart on its own. In this paper we describe the rMPI
   library which enables portable and transparent redundant computation
   for MPI applications. We detail the design of the library as well as
   two replica consistency protocols, outline the overheads of this
   library at scale on a number of real-world applications, and finally
   outline the significant increase in an applications time to solution
   at extreme scale as well as show the scenarios in which redundant
   computation makes sense."
