Supercomputers Stalk Wall Street
Speaking at this weeks Linux on Wall Street conference, Leonard Santalucia, a specialist from IBM Corp.'s (NYSE: IBM) eServer Linux impact team, explained how the hardware giant is targeting its 360-TeraFlop BlueGene/L at the financial sector.
Supercomputers conjure up images of rooms chock-full of hardware, although Santalucia says the BlueGene/L has a much smaller footprint than is usual in high-performance computing. It could sit on this small stage, he said, during a presentation at the Roosevelt Hotel, gesturing to an area of around 300 hundred square feet.
You will be able to swallow up a lot of your clusters with this guy, he added.
