SuperMicro has announced that LLNL has chosen their 1U, twin serverboard design for the Hyperion Project. The goal of the project is to provide a testbed for new cluster development and scaling research.
Hyperion represents a new way of doing business. Collectively we are building a system none of us could have built individually,” said Mark Seager, LLNL project leader. “The project will advance the state-of-the-art in a cost-effective manner, benefiting both end users, such as the national labs, and the computing industry, which can expand the market with proven, easy to deploy large and small-scale Linux clusters.”
