23 Dec 2009 "Sun Business Ready HPC for Altair RADIOSS" [22583]
An Assessment of the Cluster Approach to HPC

In his Sun BluePrints paper, "Sun Business Ready HPC for Altair RADIOSS: Best Practices for Altair RADIOSS Deployments," Dr. Gunter Roeth, of Sun ISV Engineering provides insight into constructing an optimal configuration for Altair RADIOSS car crash simulations using a high-performance cluster of Sun systems equipped with x86/x64 processors. The paper points out how HPC solutions often consist of servers equipped with Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors that are clustered together using high-speed, low-latency interconnects. In many cases, Roeth writes, these high-performance clusters can match and even surpass the throughput capabilities of vertically-scalable proprietary solutions.

18 Nov 2009 Sun HPC Recent Developments [22597]
New HPC Solutions, Benchmarks, Customers and Positioning on Top500 List

The latest Top500 list published in November shows three of the top five supercomputers based on Intel Nehalem CPUs were Sun Constellation Systems. Sun also doubled its number of entries since the June 2009 list with a total of 11 deployments providing nearly 2 PetaFLOPS (PFLOPS). Additionally, Sun announced new products and technologies for high performance computing (HPC), an upgrade to the Sun Storage 7410 Unified Storage System, new HPC benchmarks and new HPC customers.
