Clemson Upgrades Sun Cluster with Voltaire IB

Clemson University Computational Center for Mobility Systems has selected Voltaire Grid Director InfiniBand switches and 10 Gigabit Ethernet gateways for a high performance computing system based on products from Sun Microsystems:

“The 35 teraflop system provides a massive high performance computing infrastructure to address design, development and research issues for leading automotive and general mobility manufacturers worldwide. Computational simulations that previously required many weeks of processor time are now completed within hours, saving time and costs. In one study with an automotive supplier, CU-CCMS researchers reduced turnaround time for new product simulation by over 80 percent. In another case, prototype development that would have required 12 weeks was replaced with a simulation that requires less than 3 weeks ? a 75 percent reduction in the time required from concept to results.” 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.
