SMH: Anyone with huge amounts of data to analyse typically heads for the nearest supercomputer, but the cost is likely to be stiff. Now it seems that such advanced processing is not restricted to those with deep pockets. That was one of the surprises at last week's APAC'05 conference on the Queensland Gold Coast.
Hosted by the Australian Partnership for Advanced Computing and the Queensland Parallel Supercomputing Foundation, the conference attracted about 250 attendees, some of them mid-market hopefuls and others looking for ways to make their high-performance computing budgets go further - and they weren't disappointed.
