Submission + - Hawking is First User of "Big Brain" Supercomputer (datacenterknowledge.com)

miller60 writes: Calling your product the "Big Brain Computer" is a heady claim. It helps if you have Dr. Stephen Hawking say that the product can help unlock the secrets of the universe. SGI says its UV2 can scale to 4,096 cores and 64 terabytes of memory, with a peak I/O rate of four terabytes per second and runs off-the-shelf Linux software. Hawking says the UV2 "will ensure that UK researchers remain at the forefront of fundamental and observational cosmology.”
