Version 5.2 of Rocks went live for i386 and X86_64 Linux and x86_64 Solaris. What!? Did I say Solaris!? Indeed, the Rocks Cluster Toolkit now officially supports deploying Solaris as a compute node option for your cluster.” Full Story

In this video, SDSC builds a live, 128-node Rocks cluster in the Sun booth at SC2003.


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.
