just how easy do you think it would be to build and support a 16 proc system?
"super" computers dont grow on trees....not to mention, what the hell would end users do with it? its geared towards organizations that need high computational power
I could build a 16 proc opteron system with more ram and more storage space for half
500K is still EXPENSIVE.....so why dont you and go into business?
EDIT: sounds like time to double up
buddy of mine works in IT at Goldman Sachs and manages four huge Sun machines like that, says it's like 1.6 million worth of server hardware
I don't have to click on the link to see that it has "Sun" in it - and it's expensive because it's a Sun product
wow man what kinda fps you think i could get in counterstrike with that?
what do you think the face was for.
It's Sun. Everything they make is expensive. Damn good stuff though.
crontab will see this thread i'm sure
that server is one of the most powerful pieces of hardware they offer, we had some 10k and 15k's at my previous employer
You can do A LOT of intense things with those servers, large DB's etc...
so that is like what mmorpg databases are stored?
Sun Fire == Bling
