HPCWire: Purdue has just announced that it has teamed with SiCortex for the Supercomputing 2008 Cluster Challenge competition. One can certainly understand why they chose SiCortex. One of the major driving requirements in the annual Cluster Challenge is power. The teams are limited to two power drops each.
I am confident that the talented members of the Purdue team will take full advantage of our innovative architecture,” said Mark Blessing, vice president of marketing for SiCortex. “More importantly, the Purdue team’s chosen approach to the SC08 Cluster Challenge rises above the event itself, addressing head-on the real-world issue facing data centers today: how to successfully respond to the exponential increase in demand for computing power in the face of severe data center power, cooling and space constraints.”
Make sure and stop by to watch some of the teams in Austin this year. Stay tuned to InsideHPC for more complete coverage of the 2008 SC Cluster Challenge.
