Brookhaven National Laboratory selects Network.com for its computational needs
By chhandomay on Aug 02, 2007
labs and organizations have been
researching, simulating and recreating phenomenon’s occurring in our
for environmental discovery, medical research, the history of our
human life. This research commands high power computing ability to run,
analyze, and store such recreations and information.
Recently Sun Grid Compute Utility, a computing infrastructure that provides massive computational needs on an on-demand basis, has been powering the Brookhaven National Laboratory Solenoidal Tracker (STAR) project taking place at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). Brookhaven National Laboratory has recently ported STARSIM, the mainstay simulation application for the STAR project, to the Solaris 10 OS to take advantage of the computational power provided by Sun Grid Compute Utility (available from Sun Microsystems' Network.com) and is approaching the next frontiers in their studies of the "perfect liquid" formed from nuclear matter under extreme conditions. The pay-as-you-use model offered by Sun Grid Compute Utility is helping move Brookhaven National Laboratory’s simulation effort forward efficiently and without any additional infrastructure investment.
