Now the jockeys are competing to see who’s tallest. Er, shortest. This from HP when the embargo was lifted on the Top500 yesterday
For the second consecutive year, the powerful and energy-efficient HP BladeSystem c-Class server has dominated the TOP500 list of the world’s largest supercomputing installations by delivering a flexible architecture that provides customers with measurable cost, space and energy savings.
Including systems built on HP ProLiant architectures, HP now commands a total of 41.8 percent of systems on the TOP500 list, while IBM slipped to 37.6 percent.
