There are certainly many financial firms using clusters. However, most of
them don't talk about what they do. JP Morgan is well known for using their
NT desktops for night-time computations using TurboLinux's EnFusion product,
but no details other than that seem to be public. I used to work for D. E.
Shaw & Co., but I can't tell you what I did there. But I sure seemed to know
an awful lot about clustering when I left.
