It’s official, all of you who have been hearing rumors of EcoPOD, here you go, the HP POD 240a.
While the EcoPOD serves a broad range of customer data center needs, I expect we will see a number of HPC cluster deployments in EcoPOD based on the early configurations HP’s HPC Competency Center has worked on this year. A single HP POD 240a can easily contain a complete PetaFlop cluster and with an industry leading PUE your PetaFlop cluster will cost substantially less to power than a similar cluster running in almost any existing data center.
When I talked about HP’s GPU Starter Kit last week, several people suggested we should make a larger GPU starter kit. Well, I’m not sure if an PetaFlop EcoPOD qualifies as a starter kit anymore, but we would be happy to build one for you.
