Microsoft and Cray to unveil $25,000 Windows-based supercomputer



http://blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft/?p=1589&tag=nl.e539

Microsoft and Cray are set to unveil on September 16 the Cray CX1, a compact supercomputer running Windows HPC Server 2008.

The pair is expected to tout the new offering as “the most affordable supercomputer Cray has ever offered,” with pricing starting at $25,000.

In a September 15 posting to the Windows Server blog, Softie Tina Couch noted:
“It’s high performance and productivity computing that meets the needs of users, IT pros and developers by providing a highly integrated, familiar environment that is the right size and price for departmental and workgroup needs. The CX1 combines compute, storage, and visualization in a single integrated system that’s designed for non-traditional environments like labs, offices. If space is a problem, not to worry, it’s compact enough to fit in a broom closet.

“How can you get one?! It’s as easy as shopping on Amazon.com. Customers can go online, order the CX1 system using a configurator and pay with credit card.”

It's just a 7U rack-mount blade chassis with 8 slots, turned on it's side in a desk-side case and running M$ HPC (high-performance cluster) Server 2008, so should BOINC out of the box.

If you were to stuff it with 8 dual-slot 6-core Xeon modules, that'd give you 96 Xeon cores, or (rough guess) 50,000/day on a low scorer like Rosetta and way over 100,000 on something generous like MilkyWay. So just one box would give ~1 million BOINCings/week, or put into context, ~15% of KWSN's total output!!!!

Fully stuffed like that, it'll set you back nearly $90K/£50K.


Now where did I put that lottery ticket?
