Video: Unwanted Encanto Super to be Split Between Three New Mexico Universities

In this video, KRQE reports that the controversial Encanto supercomputer may be split up among New Mexico’s three research universities. Purchased in 2008 for $11 Million, the supercomputer did not bring new business to the state as promised and racked up a stack of unpayed bills. The host datacenter for the system is owned by Intel and has been targeted for demolition.

Editor’s note: John West, former owner of insideHPC called the Encanto business model into question as far back as 2008.
