Solid State Arrays and Gartners Magic Quadrant

The progress to Solid State Array Storage in Data Centres

Solid state arrays provide performance levels not experienced for many years with faster performance than disk-based storage arrays at competitive prices per Gigabyte, enabled by in-line data reduction and lower-cost NAND SSD.

largest supercomputer in the world is in UK Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Oxfordshire

13 November 2014  is a special day in UK computing. On this day UK computing is celebrating fifty years since the launch of what was at that time the largest supercomputer in the world, the Atlas 1. When built it was the size of a large detached house.  Now that same computing capacity would fit in your pocket inside your mobile phone.

The usual analogy is having the same computer power in a modern mobile phone, as suggested by the team who 10 years ago utilised the computer power  to send a rocket to a comet or indeed landing a tender on a comet 300 million miles (500 Million Kilometers) from earth

Now Rosetta the robotic space craft and Philae the probe built and launched by the European Space Agency to perform a detailed study of comet 67P

This is what a supercomputer ( Of the Time) can do or did. In the eight years of operation it had run for 44,500 hours with a 97% up time. 836,000 jobs were run, 300 million cards read, 4000 million characters from paper tape read, 800 million lines of line-printer output generated and 17 million cards punched.
