Why is Andy in Dresden?

So now you know why Andy is in Dresden this week...

 

He unveiled the Sun Constellation System at the International Supercomputing Conference at 6:00pmCET today. The preview of the system was timed to coincide with the official pre-show tour by journalists, local politicians and dignitaries. We expected the official group to visit the Sun booth for about five minutes but there was so much interest that it was at least half an hour before it moved on. In conversations with the Sun folks, these VIPs seemed particularly excited about what can be achieved using the incredible processing power provided by the Sun Constellation System. To give just two examples: pharmaceutical companies can use it to shorten drug development times, leading to faster discovery of new cures; and car manufacturers can use it to simulate multiple crash scenarios, leading to safer vehicles.
