Bigger, faster, better
Currently, I utilize (28) dual-core 1.3 GhZ 466 parallel nodes that feed the binary bits and bobs to about 20TB of raid disk
This prick boasts 181,504 AMD Opteron cores in 26,604 nodes and hits a top end of 4 teraflops, or 54 trillion mathematical calculations per second, placing the Oak Ridge (TN) Cray XT among the most powerful open scientific systems in the world. It's got over 300 Terabytes memory and 10,750 Terabytes disk space.
It even runs under SuSE Linux and has a cool mural on the blade cabinets...
Holy crap, I am in love.
