Xeon Powers Newest Sun Fire Server for HPC

Sun Microsystems today extended its family of Intel Xeon-based servers including the fastest 1U server for HPC workloads and the most expandable 2U enterprise-class system based on Intel Xeon processors.
The Sun Fire X2250 and Sun Fire X4250 servers, powered by one or two dual- or quad-core Intel Xeon processors 5200 or 5400 series, run a variety of operating systems, including Solaris, Linux and Windows. To take advantage of special offers and promotions for the new servers, visit the Sun Try & Buy site.
The Sun Fire X2250 server is a perfect 1U server for HPC workloads such as MCAE, EDA, energy and financial services, giving customers an inexpensive compute engine for highly dense, power-sensitive environments that delivers lightning-fast performance and can easily scale for parallel processing. When used in conjunction with the freely available Lustre(TM) file system, customers running these applications can scale to tens of thousands of nodes, petabytes of data, and billions of files.

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.
