Sun in the Top 500
By templedf on Jun 28, 2007
According to Top 500, Sun has 9 sites in the top 500 super-computers in the world:
|14||GSIC Center, Tokyo Institute of Technology|
|52||University of Southern California|
|261||Mississippi State University|
|412||Sun Project Blackbox|
|413||Sun Solution Center for HPC|
|416||National Institute for Space Research/CPTEC|
|417||DKRZ - Deutsches Klimarechenzentrum|
|427||Sun Solution Center for HPC|
|467||Universidad de Granada|
Not the most impressive line-up, but we're working on it. In the coming year or so, look for Sun to move up the charts significantly.
What I find most impressive about this list is #412. Project Blackbox is a product, not a site. We sell the thing to whomever can afford it. Does that mean that everyone who buys a Blackbox will make the Top 500 list? Doesn't that mean there will be a massive tie for 412th place? What does that mean for everyone below 412 on the list? I absolutely love it when we change the rules of the game!
