New White Paper: Pathways to Petascale Computing

If you’re wondering what makes TACC Ranger tick, check out this new white paper that describes how Sun is addressing the challenges of petascale computing architectures:
“Derived from Sun’s innovative design approach and experience with very large supercomputing deployments, the Sun Constellation System provides the world’s most scalable HPC computing architecture — built entirely with open and standard hardware and software technologies. Cluster architects can use the Sun Constellation System to design and rapidly deploy tightly-integrated, efficient, and cost-effective supercomputing grids and clusters that scale predictably from a few teraflops to over a petaflop. With a totally modular approach, processors, memory, interconnect fabric, and storage can all be scaled independently depending on individual needs.” PDF download

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. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
