Marc Hamilton with Sun Constellation highlights

On his blog. Some of my favorites:

  • The Sun Constellation System requires only 1/6 as many IB cables as current solutions. In a 3456 node cluster, this is estimated to be a weight savings over over 8 tons in the cables alone!
  • The Sun Constellation System supports AMD, Intel, and SPARC CPUs.
  • The Sun Constellation System scales down to starter systems, starting with a single rack of 48 blades (192 sockets/768 cores) and up to 13,824 blades with 4 switches.
