Bioinformatics and Try and Buy
By sprack on Apr 24, 2006
In recent posts I have mentioned the performance of Bioinformatics applications on the T1000 and T2000 (Niagara boxes). However, I never got around to mentioning Sun's Try and Buy program:
At the risk of this sounding like a sales pitch, this is a pretty interesting program that essentially allows customers to experiment with a Niagara box for 60 days free of charge. At the end of the 60 days, customers can either opt to buy the system or return the box to Sun – I even think Sun pays for the return shipping. If you are interested in investigating the performance of Bioinformatics applications on Niagara, this represents a great opportunity to do so.....
