Carver IBM iDataPlex
Carver Status: Up
Carver, named in honor of American scientist George Washington Carver, is an IBM iDataPlex system. Each node contains two Intel Nehalem quad-core processors. The system's theoretical peak performance is 106.5 Teraflops/sec.
New computer simulations have shown how using a different type of material could enable thinner, more lightweight solar panels that provide power densities – watts per kilogram of material – orders of magnitude higher than current technologies. Read More »
MSI technology is already helping doctors to better diagnose diseases, and leading to the creation of energy efficient and renewable biofuels. But researchers envision these areas of science progressing much faster—if only they had the computational tools to easily process, analyze and share these massive datasets. Now, they do—it’s called OpenMSI. Read More »
