Sun Cluster at SDSC Powers On-Demand HPC

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) is teaming with Interactive Supercomputing, Inc. (ISC) to let potentially thousands of new users take advantage of SDSC’s high performance computing resources by making the technology easier and on-demand.
The 128-processor Star-P-enabled Sun cluster is already being tapped by dozens of researchers and students to accelerate scientific discovery. For example, researchers at the University of Maryland are using the system to do 4-D MRI medical image processing in a quest to improve radiation therapies. Students at Perdue are applying stochastic computing models to optimize how companies handle their product inventories. And post-doctorate grad students at the University of California San Diego are running eye imaging applications on Star-P in the fight against glaucoma. Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems.
