Sun's SC08 round-up in Austin!

Howdy, ya’ll. This has been a busy week for Sun at the annual Supercomputing (SC08) conference, located in Austin, Texas, this year. We started things off on Monday night with John Fowler, EVP of Sun’s Systems Group, accepting an award commemorating Sun’s 20th appearance at Supercomputing – going back to the very first SC show in Orlando.


On Monday during the show's opening gala, HPCwire also did a short podcast with John to get an overview of Sun's presence at SC08. Take a listen.

On Tuesday, we made three announcements -- highlighting some exciting customer deployments, announcing new products, and claiming that 9 of the top 10 supercomputers on the TOP500 list use Sun Storage technologies. Check out the SC08 press kit to see these press releases, hear podcasts about Sun’s activities at the show, and more.

On Wednesday, I took some time to chat with Bjorn Andersson, director, HPC marketing, to get his perspective on the show and the new Sun Compute Cluster and Sun Storage Cluster.

Overall, an exciting show for Sun! See ya'll at SC09 in Portland.
