Sun aims HPC at small organizations

At SC08 recently, Sun introduced storage, cluster systems and software aimed at bringing its high-performance computing expertise to smaller organisations, departments and branch offices. The launch covered two hardware-software bundles — Sun Storage Cluster and Sun Compute Cluster — plus a number of open-source software products and updates for running HPC.
“Sun Storage Cluster is built on Sun Fire servers and hybrid data servers, a high-speed interconnect and the open-source Lustre file system, a new version of which also made its debut at the trade show. The system can scale in capacity from 48TB to multiple petabytes and in input/output performance from 1GBps to more than 100 GBps. The company can custom-build and deliver systems through its Sun Customer Ready program.” 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. 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.
