HPCwire: This week, Silicon Valley startup PANTA Systems unveiled its new server platform called PANTAmatrix. It is an x86-based platform that represents one of the new breed of servers that focuses on I/O performance and SMP configurability. It allows users to dynamically allocate I/O and computational resources across the cluster. A single PANTAmatrix system can support up to 9,000 processors as well as petabytes of storage.

Jonathan Schwartz Blog: As I've been saying for a while, our customers - more specifically, a segment* of our customers - face a diversity of tough challenges. What does the CIO in midtown Manhattan do when she runs out of roof space or power? How does an aid agency deliver basic connectivity to 5,000 relief workers in a tsunami stricken metropolis? What does an oil company do when they want to move high performance analytics onto an offshore platform or supertanker? Or a large web services company do when they want to cookie cutter their infrastructure next to a hyrdroelectric plant for cheap power - within weeks, not years?
