Sun Highlights End-to-End HPTC Solutions with Grid, Clustering, Advanced Interconnect and Visualization Technologies

11/19/2002 - At this year's Supercomputing 2002 conference in Baltimore, Sun Microsystems showcases its leadership in grid computing, featuring demonstrations of cluster, enterprise and global grids accessed via Sun[tm] ONE Grid Engine software.

Sun ONE Grid Engine software continues to be vastly successful in technical computing environments, and today powers more than 6,000 grids worldwide, with 70 new grid deployments each week. Sun will demonstrate how Sun ONE Grid Engine software and Sun ONE Grid Engine, Enterprise Edition software are helping to enable HPTC users to maximize and more efficiently allocate their compute resources. Booth demonstrations include:

New Technologies for Interconnect, Clustering and Visualization
Sun is unveiling its newest cluster interconnect technology - the Sun Fire[tm] Link interconnect. Designed to deliver blazing throughput rates and terascale superclustering capabilities in the data center, the Sun Fire Link technology accelerates cluster communication among up to eight high-end Sun systems -- from the Sun Fire 6800 to the Sun Fire 15K server -- powering up to 800 processors.

Sun will feature a range of its HPTC products, including HPC storage area network solutions, and Sun HPC ClusterTools[tm] software. Sun will also showcase technology demonstrations of the Sun[tm] XVR-4000 graphics accelerator, its MAJC-based graphics technology currently in development release. Demonstrations will focus on the graphics accelerator's extreme visualization and simulation capabilities required for data-intensive HPTC applications.

Additional partners and customers participating with Sun at Supercomputing 2002 include: Ansys, Avaki, Fluent, Qlogic, TeraBurst Networks, Visual Numerics, Wolfram Research, Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC), and Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC).
