In this slidecast, Phil Hughes from Clustered Systems presents: The 100KW Rack Introduction. Using a grant from the US Dept. of Energy, the company has developed a highly dense compute rack with a PCI-E interconnect and an extremely efficient warm-water cooling system.
The company estimates that a completely operational Petaflop compute facility using the new technology could be built for approximately $20 Million USD. To be available through OEM partners, first shipments will likely start in 2Q2012, and SLAC will deploy the first system.
