Amazon has created a virtual supercomputer
that can complete about 240 trillion calculations in a second using 17,000 cores.
The systems operate together to create a single, large virtual supercomputer
IBM's World Community Grid is a virtual supercomputer
created by individuals who donate their unused computer time to tackle complex calculations to accelerate scientific research.
The experiment will generate 40,000 gigabytes of data each day, which will be analysed by a virtual supercomputer
made up of 100,000 processors around the world linked by the internet.
IBM's World Community Grid, a virtual supercomputer
that gains its resources by thousands of volunteers donating their unused computer time, will be used to support this project.
A University of Saskatchewan (U of S) computer cluster was called into service as part of a virtual supercomputer
project to trace the motion of tens of thousands of atoms in an effort to figure out how proteins fold.
Tiger Server has over 200 new features including native support for 64-bit applications, ideal for high-performance computing; iChat Server to deploy secure instant messaging within an organization; Weblog Server that makes it simple to publish and share weblogs (blogs); and Xgrid(TM) to make it easy to turn a group of Macs into a virtual supercomputer
NPL linked the center's existing computer nodes using United Devices' Grid MP software platform, collectively harnessing previously unutilized power to create a virtual supercomputer
capable of accelerating and refining their mathematical measurement simulations.
The institute will help companies harness spare computer processing power and tap into a virtual supercomputer
through the internet.
Distributed computing networks turn home users' computers into part of a virtual supercomputer
that can perform time-intensive operations.
Exactly when these high-tech extras will be made readily available is uncertain; however, we do know that automakers, software companies, and cellular telephone manufacturers already have in hand the know-how that could transform the car from simply being a mode of transportation to being a virtual supercomputer
University departments with limited access to compute resources for research can use Penguin's virtual supercomputer
on-demand and pay-as-they-go, allowing them to use their IT budget for operational expenses.
