Academic and Research HPC environments in Asia and Europe underwent significant changes in the past years. Widely established standards at processors, node, interconnect and software level helped significantly to ease cross-site and cross-country collaboration and load-balancing. Examples of typical environments will be shown and future trends and new challenges including the potential use of HPC Clouds will be discussed.
