Silicon Graphics heeft een nieuw type supercomputer aangekondigd dat zal draaien op Linux en Intel Itanium processors. Hier de info van Yahoo News:
Computer maker Silicon Graphics Inc (NYSE:SGI - news) Monday unveiled a new type of supercomputer based on Intel chips and the Linux operating system instead of its own proprietary technology.
It said the new design will help it make machines that are more powerful than anything now on the market, while also driving down costs to make them affordable to a larger group of customers.
[...] Its new machine also incorporates a different design, based on a cluster of individual computers, instead of one big one. The product now on display is a cluster of four Intel-based machines, however the company says it plans to eventually combine up to 100 machines.
The machines use Intel's Itanium microprocessor, and the free Linux operating system, which will also help limit cost.
