The ramifications of this project go beyond supercomputing, SuSE marketing vice president Joseph Eckert says. "This is about the heart of what Linux can do. I mean -- c'mon, using 64-bit to do clustering -- that is just amazing."
Cray (Nasdaq: CRAY) has chosen SuSE Linux to play a key role in helping the supercomputer maker build a massive parallel-processing supercomputer for the U.S. Department of Energy.
Dubbed "Red Storm," the supercomputer is expected to be the fastest supercomputer in the U.S. It will be powered by AMD's (NYSE: AMD) Opteron 64-bit processors featuring hypertransport technology.
