Some people are still touting Solid State Disks (SSDs) as hot new technology. Meanwhile, many High Performance Computing (HPC) customers have moved on to more innovative uses of flash technology. Come hear what some of our customers are doing with Sun's flash technology like the
Sun Storage F5100 at next month's
HPC Consortium meeting immediately prior to
SC09 conference in beautiful Portland Oregon. Impatient, don't worry, some Sun HPC customers who participated in early testing of the F5100
already have great things to say about it. Customers like Chuck Sears, Manager of Research Computing at Oregon's very own College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University, and Don Thorp, Production Systems, San Diego Supercomputer Center,
share their experiences with the F5100 in HPC environments.
And while the entire HPC community is focused on the upcoming SC09 conference right now, be sure to save the dates for the other major international supercomputer show,
ISC10 starting May 31 in Hamburg Germany. Meanwhile, check out the following video by my favorite movie star, Sun EVP John Fowler, talking about the F5100.
