[Beowulf] large MPI adopters

MPI is of course used by many applications running on commercial clusters.
Two obvious examples are computational chemistry by the drug companies
and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for aerospace companies and F1 design teams.

These are all long-term 'traditional' uses of MPI for scientific/engineering codes.

Is this what you are asking? Or are you thinking of non-traditional uses in say computational finance or gaming sites?

I am curious about what companies, besides the national labs of course,
use any implementation of MPI to support large applications of any kind,
whether only internally (like mapreduce for google, for example) or not.

does anybody know of any cases?
thank you and best regards,
