TACC Ranger Tour

Hi everybody,

A video tour through Ranger, the second most powerfull super computer of the world.
But more than that, what makes it greater than the 1st position of the rank is that it is also a commercial solution of Sun... if want to buy a supercomputer like Ranger for you or your enterprise, you can do it!

"The Sun Constellation System is the world's first open Petascale computing environment combining ultra-dense high performance computing, networking, storage and software into an integrated system that delivers massive scalability, dramatically reduced complexity and breakthrough economics. The Sun Constellation System brings key innovations to market and is designed for radical simplicity that puts a new level of high-performance computing within reach for customers, whether they are pushing the limits for what is physically possible or if they are hungry for more performance from HPC solutions in production today." - http://www.sun.com/servers/hpc/SunConstellationPreview.jsp

Sun MD Earthquakes!!

Today was THE day of BLACKBOX TOUR @ BRAZIL @ Rio de Janeiro!
Just one thing to say! That thing is really cool!

For the ones who don't know about what I'm talking, it’s about a complete Datacenter inside a container. The widely known project BlackBox has become a Sun product! They just (but not simply) put 8 racks inside a 20 feet container with exclusives refrigeration and amortization system, redundant power and data links… well, there would be many things to say. If you got interested by the specs. Have a look at Sun MD Data Sheet and get amazed too.

The nicest part! It’s totally moveable. You can take your Modular Datacenter Anywhere! For many industries, it fits perfect! You can have a "turn-key" datacenter while you builds your own. For example, about the discovering of a new oil bay, you can’t wait for 5 years till the end of a datacenter building… so… just take your Sun MD there!!

On the talk during the today’s event was said about a video hosted at YouTube about an experiment Sun did to test the black box… they put it to survive a simulated Earthquake! To the experiments, they used the earthquake simulation system, cameras to visualize the container interior and SUN SPOTS to measure thinks! Yes, there were Sun Spots there… The video is amazing, and they have already used the experiment’s results to improve Sun MD performance…. But get shocked: Sun MD kept working after a 6.4 Richter magnitude scale earthquake. Have a look ate the video:

Want to buy one?? It could really stay on the top of your building and you can try it’s 450000 web transaction per second capacity:

Cheers!

Long long time without writing here! Back with some news! UFRJ SAI inscription was done. Our professor has already gotten his access at Learning Connection and we are planning Java classes for next semester. Cool!
We will be making the power of sun Tech Talk about these week or next one. Then we will start planning the J2EE, Sun Studio and Solaris Tech Talks... I'm waiting the arrival of my notebook for that.
After showing Solaris, we will make efforts to start the OSUG.

Google Group for UFRJ

Hi!
After our Tech Demos, we got names and e-mails we turned into a Google Group that will be our way to stay in contact with people interested in the project. Today, the group has 39 nine people and it's increasing! Seems great! We are still negotiating UFRJ SAI inclusion... it's being quite difficult... :(
