Sun HPC Helps Advance Knowledge of the Universe

When researching the formation of the universe, scientists need high-performance computing power to run simulations of the interactions of the earliest forms of matter. The Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC) at Durham University is one of the largest computing centers in the world for studying these phenomena and depends on powerful yet economical computers to handle its compute-intensive research.
“Our simulations take weeks or even months to run and if the computing environment crashed all the time, we would never get through them,” says Professor Carlos Frenk, director of the ICC and Ogden Professor for Fundamental Physics. Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing.
