a quick visit to the HPC/V (16)

oh c'mon! every geek wants to do this! ^_^ (but it is a little wrong, yes (((: )

This is btw the fastest supercomputer in the Netherlands and one of the fastest (Nr. 51 in the top 500) in the world... This is a 12,288(!) core system. The previous Blue Gene/L was #68 (and ranked much higher earlier on), but it's been replaced only a couple of weeks ago with a Blue Gene/P, in other words, it's even quicker!

 

for some undisclosed appointment(^_^), i visited the High Performance Computing & Visualization Centre (HPC/V) this afternoon. And of course I took some pics!

 

(we were in a little bit of a rush, so quite some of these pics are a little shaky because my camera still was on iso 50...)

 

(i visited this very same centre more than five years ago too....)
