Intelligent flash storage arrays

Motorola is designing next generation semiconductors with the aid of a 200+ node cluster Linux system capable of 0.5 teraflops in peak floating point performance. The system is from Atipa Linux Solutions, and uses Red Hat as the OS. The existence of a system of this size makes it clear that Linux is going places in terms of scalability. Motorola will use it at its Los Alamos National Labs to enhance atomic and device scale modelling for next generation semiconductor devices, and according to company senior research engineer Roland Stumpf, "the turnaround time for some of our simulations will go down from days to hours." Atipa, founded in 1994, supplies pre-configured Linux servers, workstations and clusters for business, education, consumer, scientific and engineering and government customers. ®
