New Linux Clusters from HP

Hp Has upgraded it's HP SFS system for linux allowing 35GB/second transfers.It has increased the capacity to 512TB while cutting the price in half to $44000.
"We were able to reduce what it costs to get into the system by half," Koeninger, product manager said. "We found [the original list price of $80,000 to $90,000] to be too high a threshold for people to kick the tires."
StorageWorks Grid divides storage, indexing, search and retrieval tasks across a set of computing nodes or storage "smart cells." Each smart cell acts as a storage server that works in parallel with other smart cells on the grid, delivering info in real time.
