The ICE Box appliance is an ideal cluster
management tool that provides vital features like serial access to nodes and remote power control -- so I never need to go to the server room," said Gene Cutler, bioinformatics scientist for Tularik.
Because the Coma cluster
has some unusual traits, the investigators remained uncertain about whether most clusters
have potent magnetic fields.
This trend applies pressure to the storage systems used to support these I/O-hungry applications, and has prompted a wave of new storage solutions based on the same scale-out approach as cluster
comprises 256 2-CPU computational servers from VA Linux, and IBM Netfinity servers for cluster
management, file storage and visualization.
So far, the Virgo scientists have revealed one hot, massive cluster
in their analysis of one-fourth of the sky.
All controllers provide an active-active I/O workload and communicate between all controllers within the cluster
Some of the gas gathered around NGC 1399, a massive galaxy at the center of Fornax, while a larger amount concentrated around the entire cluster
The growth of cluster
computing has been fueled by a number of key technology developments in recent years.
In addition, atoms in the ideal cluster
building block pack together tightly, the scientists say.
