Linux + 8*PS3 = Cluster for gravity simulation

[digg-me] A certain Gaurav Khanna from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth created computing cluster based on 8 (eight) Sony PlayStation 3 consoles that is meant to simulate gravity processes. The project is named as “PS3 Gravity Grid” and allows to model Binary Black Hole Coalescence using Perturbation Theory. Actually it’s not first case when PS3 is used as a component for cluster as it has not bad Cell Processor and it’s open platform. How do you think, what operating system manages cluster? Windows? Nope. It’s Linux.

  1. Why would bill gates be pissed? Its a PS3 running Linux not an Xbox 360…

    I'd find that to be more of a way to piss ole billy off.

  2. I understand that… My point was that Bill Gates wouldn't give two Sh!ts about linux running on Sony's crap… That he'd be more pissed on an Xbox360

  3. This is just the reason to buy PS3s. I've been waiting for this day to arrive. A 100/GFLOPS box for $500 bucks with everything you need in each node.

  4. I was just saying that William would rather have something of his doing scientific things.

    …Sony’s crap? I’m not even going to touch that one.

    But yeah I was basically saying Yay for linux in a round about way. But if you must argue every minuscule point of something you don’t agree with.. Go ahead, I’ll be afk.

  5. I’m no longer sure the place you are getting your info, but good topic. I must spend some time studying much more or working out more. Thanks for great information I used to be in search of this information for my mission.
