    Re: News - UK’s most powerful GPU supercomputer booted up

    The two systems working together "will give businesses and academics unprecedented access to their super-fast processing capability".
    So they're planning to sell time on these to folks outside of academia? Sounds like a good idea to me - since I'm sure that (assuming they're apps would support it) there'll be a few engineering companies who'd like a shot at a powerful number cruncher. Will it run Abaqus, Ansys, MSC.Nastran, etc?

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
