Red Sky & Red Mesa Update
By marchamilton on Apr 08, 2010
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Sandia are already using the Red Sky and Red Mesa supercomputers to achieve amazing scientific results. Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking at the formal ribbon cutting and grand opening of the Red Sky supercomputer at Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico. Several months ago I posted a time-lapse video on the building of Red Sky. Now in production, Sandia's Red Sky supercomputer, along with the co-located Red Mesa system of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are hard at work solving some of the nation's most difficult energy challenges. The video below gives an update on some of the early research results accomplished on Red Sky and Red Mesa, and I think you will find the work quite amazing. My congratulations go out to the Sandia and NREL teams for their accomplishments and for inspiring all of us to think of new ways to address some of our planet's most challenging problems.
